Brides must always try to follow a healthy diet to stay well and look beautiful on her wedding day.
According to celebrity nutritionist Anjali Mukerjee, every bride wants to look perfect on her wedding day as it one of the most important events in her life.
“Precisely why, for some women, the last few months leading up to ‘the big day’ can be most stressful as they work extra hard at this stage to get in shape and look their best,” she wrote in a post in Instagram.
“And this stress makes many to be brides either overeat or follow fad diets to lose weight,” she added.
She also said that brides-to-be simply cannot look good and feel great unless their body is properly nourished and gets adequate exercise.
She has suggested some diet tips for brides-to-be to look beautiful on her wedding day-
i) Eat smaller meals, more frequently, as this will help reduce low blood sugar caused by stress. Besides it is a good strategy to manage your weight. Include atleast 5-8 servings of fruits and vegetables in your diet
ii) Drink atleast 2 glasses of vegetable juice made from tomatoes, spinach, dudhi, mint and coriander. These vegetables will help to detoxify your body and eliminate body odour.
