Many brides and grooms don’t have time to eat the day before the wedding. Stress, nerves and last-minute details often lead to really bad food choices. On any other day, “cheat days” are fine. However, on the day before your wedding – the day you need to fit into a custom wedding dress or tailored suit, the day that will be etched in your memory (and social media) forever – on that day, you want to eat something that will help you look and feel your best.
What to eat the day before your wedding
The last thing you want the day of your wedding is to walk down the aisle with a food baby. Avoid foods that can lead to bloating to ensure that your wedding day is a “flat stomach day.”
Fat and sodium
Salt will cause you to retain water, and fats will delay your metabolism and keep your stomach full for longer. Fat and salt are the reason that although pizza is delicious, you won’t feel delicious after eating a slice. Yes, one slice of pizza is enough to make you feel uncomfortable and bloated.
No matter what you reach for the day before your wedding, check the fat and sodium content. Many prepared meals, even healthy looking canned soups, contain hidden fats and extra sodium. So, even though you’re stressed, you’re much more likely to eat non-bloaty foods if you prepare your meals yourself. That way, you can control the fat and the sodium.
Play it safe
Don’t take any chances with new foods the day before your wedding. Don’t hit an all you can eat shrimp buffet, not matter how reputable the place is! You may not have any known allergies, but the days leading up to your wedding is no time to test your system with new foods.
Reduce water retention by staying hydrated at all times. Carry a bottle of water with you wherever you go to make sure you are staying hydrated. Keeping yourself hydrated will also give your skin a little extra boost in freshness and vitality, so you’ll shine on your wedding day.
