The Anti-‘Wedding Diet’ | UK Wedding Blog

With just under four months to go until our wedding, I’m officially on the quest to resemble something like a Victoria’s Secret model.

Prior to their Big Day, women all over the world will diet and undergo complete transformations just to look great on their wedding day. And whilst I can appreciate there’s being too drastic, I also understand that you don’t want to look back on your wedding photos and hate the way you look.

That’s why I’m on the Anti-Wedding Diet. It’s not about cutting calories, or embarking on half-life crash diets, but it’s about making small adjustments to my lifestyle in order to feel happier and healthier. I’ve personally been making small changes for the past couple of months and I’m really starting to feel better for it.

I’ve hugely upped my water intake, all of the food I buy is fresh and unprocessed, and it’s made such a huge difference. A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by Fit Fuel – a meal prepping company who aim to get customers clued up on what food to eat to build muscle and generally feel better. You are what you eat, right?

They sent over a selection of their meals to try, and to see how I’d feel by the end of the week – they got delivered in ready meal-like containers and just need popping in the microwave before you eat them. The meals included chicken, fish, and lots of yummy vegetables. My favourite was the harissa chicken with grains and veg.

It’s a great concept for people who can’t cook, who don’t know how to improve their diet, or  those who just don’t want the fuss of shopping and preparing their meals. If you’re a busy worker, you’ll appreciate the fact you can just whizz something around in the microwave and have a delicious dinner at the end of it. For me, it’s the kind of food I already eat and buy, so I can’t say I noticed a difference. It also comes with a price tag, which I’ll be honest, I could easily do a weeks’ worth of shopping for. However I do recommend giving it a go if you want to eat better for your body.

Diet is really important not only in losing weight, but making your skin, hair, nails… everything, healthier. Simple changes like upping your fruit and veg and drinking more water will make such a huge difference, I promise!

hair

In other beauty-related news, I went to get my hair done yesterday. It really had been FAR too long – I’m talking pre-Christmas – since I last had a chop (I know, I know) and it was in absolute dire need of a refresh. If you’re local to the Derby/Burton area, I strongly recommend Altro Mondo on Station Street in Burton-upon-Trent. Stylist Ria gave my hair the TLC it needed and I’m so pleased with how it turned out.

I’m also on the quest for perfect lashes. I daren’t wear too much eye makeup on our wedding day as there will probably be tears, so I’m wanting to try out some lash extensions. Has anyone ever tried this before? Let me know if you’d recommend it, or give me some other tips for luscious lashes on my wedding day!

Until next time,
