    In Expert Diet Tips On 13 December 2014

    Most women dream of having the perfect wedding where all eyes are on them and they look nothing less than a princess.

But if you plan in advance and follow a healthy lifestyle, you can look stunning without having to compromise on your health. Here are seven tips by Nutritionist Neha Chandna that every bride-to-be should follow. Sleep well: Most brides forget what sleep is after they get hitched, worrying about the tiniest of things that can go wrong. But don’t forget, sleep is the only time when your body recovers from all the stress it is going through during the day. And the good news is, a good night’s sleep is an important part of your weight loss process as it stabilises your hunger hormones which help you control your appetite. Get a full body check-up: Before you begin with a meal or workout plan, it is essential to get yourself checked for any abnormalities in your body. Unbalanced blood sugar levels, hormonal levels, etc are also responsible for weight gain. Once your reports are clear, it will be easier to decide your meal and exercise plan. And in case you suffer from something, you can always get help and customise your weight loss programme. Join a gym or fitness club: If you can motivate yourself and go for a brisk walk for an hour every day, kudos to you. But if you are one of those who keep pushing back your workout making every possible excuse in the book, you better enroll yourself in a gym, dance class, etc. 1 hour of exercise is a must to help you lose flab and look fab on your wedding. In the gym, get a fitness trainer who can carve out a plan according to your goals and work on your problem areas. Drink plenty of water: Water is an excellent solvent and it dispells all the toxins from your body leaving you with a glowing skin, lustrous hair and a healthy body. It also helps balance all the reactions in your cells and keeps your metabolism up to help you lose weight. Drink at least 35 ml/kg body weight of water/day and even more if you are out in the sun to rehydrate yourself. Eat small meals every 2-3 hours: Agreed, with all the wedding preparations, eating frequent meals could be a challenge. But all you need to do is plan your day smartly and make sure you carry your meals with you wherever you go so that you avoid missing them and eat junk food. Eating often increases your metabolism and helps you burn fat faster. Stay away from unnecessary fats and sweet: Avoid butter, ghee, cakes, pastries, desserts, fried foods, etc as these can only worsen your efforts to lose weight. Sweets can also give you a lot of mood swings and sugar cravings which you surely don’t need amidst all the wedding preparations. Avoid binge drinking: Alcohol can play havoc with your weight loss plan and not to forget your skin as well. It will dehydrate you, make you lethargic, add a number of calories in a short time and will also show on your face – it will look dull and lifeless. Smoking too has a similar effect. In order to avoid all this, restrict your alcohol intake.

    In Expert Diet Tips On 19 December 2014

      It’s understood that marriage and stress go hand in hand. The day that you have been waiting for all your life is just around the corner and so much to do to make that day just perfect. Stress is bound to set in. But excess stress can actually ruin your health, hormones and the fun aspect of your most awaited day.  You cannot avoid stress but you can definitely find ways to cope with it to help you unwind and face all the challenges with ease. Basically you need to spare some time for yourself from all the chaos to disconnect with the world and help your mind and body relax. Here are a few simple tips to help you collect yourself to enjoy every moment of your wedding Focus on your breath: Be it in the train, car, office or anywhere, all you need do is just focus on breathing and let the thoughts come and go. Do not focus or ponder on any thought. Do it for 15 minutes and see how relaxed you feel. Listen to music: Listen to whatever you feel like be it some melodious track, any instrumental music, or any romantic number which takes you to a dreamland and helps you to forget all your worries. Enjoy your tea/ coffee/ green tea: Rather than just gulping your drink down, stand at your balcony or terrace , look at the tress and slowly roll your drink over your tongue. Enjoy the alone act and live in the moment. Go for a long drive: Just drive alone with some of your favorite music and let yourself lose, enjoy and go where the road takes you. Take a walk: Walk along the beach or on some green grass, chant om or any or mantra to purify your mind and soul. Feel the breeze move through your body and let the negativity move out along with it. Create art: Set aside sometime from your busy schedule to create some form of art. Paint, draw, craft, stitch or anything of your choice to actually feel the happiness flow through you. Cook: The most relaxing thing you can do for yourself is cook a dish which you can very well. Put all your heart into it and let your family members feel your love for them. Go for a massage: The best way to unwind your mind and body is to go for a good deep tissue massage to remove every ache and pain from your body and rejuvenate you. Make sure you choose any 3 things atleast daily to bounce back each day with all your vigor and energy. Happy wedding!!
