Диета невесты

Every bride wants her wedding ceremony to be the best in the world. It primarily depends on how good she looks on such an important and decisive day. However, quite often brides are not satisfied with their reflection in the mirror because of a few extra kilos. Undoubtedly, it is possible to lose weight by doing regular physical exercises and eating healthy food, but what can be done if there are only a few days left before your wedding celebration? In this case, the bride can use an express diet that will help her become slimmer in the shortest period of time.

Apple-orange express diet

Apple-orange express dietIt is about a 5-day mono diet that involves eating only one type of food during the entire period of dieting. However, do not forget that your health is more important than any wedding ceremony! You must know that such diet has many adverse effects and contraindications. That is why it is recommended to consult a dietitian before starting an express mono diet, since such nutrition scheme is very strict and based on consumption of a large amount of fruit. Such pre-wedding diet plan is based on apples and oranges. Oranges contain an array of antioxidants, including flavonoids that help maintain your vitality and energy level, as well as quench fatigue that is often associated with weight loss. Due to many fibers, oranges reduce appetite and quench hunger. If yourwedding ceremony is approaching and you need to lose a couple of kilos, oranges are the right solution for you. Please, make sure you do not suffer from digestive system or liver disorders, gastric or perforated ulcer. Among other contraindications of this diet, there are anemia and high blood pressure.

One more assistant in express dieting is an apple. It contains pectin that limits the amount of fat absorbed by body cells. Pectin helps get slimmer in the shortest time term. Pectin is more effective for a human body when it is consumed with natural substances. For example, one apple helps burn up to 200 grams of fat. Apples also contain natural fiber that contributes to weight loss. Fiber sends signals to the brain meaning that we are full and keeping us satisfied for a long time after a meal.

If after radical changes in your diet you start feeling worse, do not hesitate to cancel the diet: no original wedding is worthy of sacrificing your health. Otherwise, you may feel sick and even experience serious health disorders. On the other hand, if you are feeling great, your diet menu should include a breakfast, a lunch, a dinner and a supper. Enjoy one orange, two apples and a cup of unsweetened green tea or infusion for breakfast. Have an apple and a glass of still water for lunch. You can also drink a glass of orange or apple juice. Eat two apples and two oranges with two glasses of purified still water for dinner. Treat yourself to a half oforange and a half of apple accompanied by a glass of purified water for supper.

Start your diet 5 days before the date of your original wedding. You can also drink mineral and purified water, green tea and infusions as much as you want. By the end of your diet, it is important to terminate correctly your strict eating regime. Do not overeat on the day of wedding. It would be ideal to dine with lean meat, seafood, fruit or vegetables. By the way, your diet will be more effective if you increase your physical activity and fast for one day to eliminate toxins from your body.

The best time for breakfast is between 6 and 7 a.m. The lunch hour should be at 1 p.m., the dinner at 4 p.m., and the supper earlier than at 10 p.m. To maintain your weight and boast the result of the diet after the wedding day, make sure you control your serving size that should not be bigger than a palm of your hand. As for liquid courses such as soup, try to eat no more than 5 tablespoons at a time.
