Removing food groups from your diet – This is one of the most common dieting mistakes that a bride can make. Removing food groups such as carbs or fats from your diet will stop your body from working as it should. It can make you feel exhausted and moody while also increasing the likelihood of binging and overeating. So while you might think that cutting out food groups might be a quick solution, you are very much mistaken. One of the healthiest ways to lose weight is by developing a diet plan that encourages you to get all food groups in moderation.

Not eating at all – If your wedding is only a few weeks away, it can be tempting to stop eating at all to get your weight down. Choosing not to eat anything can cause significant damage to your mind and body. It can also cause bloating, gorging and a higher risk of you becoming ill before your wedding day. Always give yourself sufficient time to lose weight and reach your goals and never ever starve yourself. Change your attitude and consider how you can start more positive eating habits. You and your partner could join a cooking class to learn how to make delicious meals. You could take miracle berry tablets to make fruit and vegetables taste better or use the internet for meal inspiration. You should ideally be eating three meals a day and snacks in between.
Doing too much exercise – Exercise is a fantastic way of boosting our energy levels and can aid a weight loss regime. However, doing too exercise in the run up to your wedding can be unsafe as well as unhealthy. Doing this will put a significant amount of pressure on your body, which can slow down your metabolism.
