A holistic approach to health and wellness

WEDDING Weight loss Nutrition Planning

Preparing for your big day? We know there are a million things on your list of to-do’s. With a big to-do list self care all to often goes to the wayside. This is unfortunate as in preparing for our weddings, self-care is what enables us to be successful planners and put our best foot forward at crunch time! Our health should be at the foremost of all we do, and the best way to foster this is through keeping up a good nutrition regimen.

Weight loss motivation can come about from many big life events, but often we may find one of other biggest motivators is planning to say I do. There is no greater way to feel nourished and energized for all the tasks to come in preparation for our wedding day than to nourish ourselves with healthy foods. I encourage brides and grooms to consider the potentially countless benefits of healthy dietary habits and looking beyond just wedding weight loss plans.

I encourage brides and grooms to focus on the internal values of weight loss, that can help you sustain a good routine in this hectic time and beyond. These internal values may include wanting to be honest with yourself about your food choices, longevity with your life partner, or setting positive examples for others. We make so many beautiful plans for our big day. Shouldn’t nurturing your body, mind, and sustaining health be at the forefront of it all? After all, after we say “I do” our health is the one thing that will stick with us through the entirety of our marriage.

Why choose a registered dietitian nutritionist when seeking to loose weight for your wedding?

Whatever your reason for wanting a focus on weight loss , a dietitian can help to support you with a natural and healthy weight loss routine. Further, working with a registered dietitian can help foster wedding weight loss that lasts far beyond the big day. Registered dietitian nutritionists are your food and nutrition expert. A dietitian nutritionist will give you facts without diet fad regimens. Bringing your groom or wedding party into a healthy weight loss routine for the wedding day can help support your wedding weight loss plan as well as keep up the fun and excitement moving towards the big day.

A number on the scale often dictates our initial decision to pursue wedding weight loss. However brides and grooms will often encounter side effects such as increased energy, increased motivation, and an overall increase in confidence and well being. This is great news for the potentially countless hours invested wedding party members may spend planning their big day.

A dietitian can help those seeking a wedding weight loss routine by examining behavior surrounding food, meal timing, dietary choices, and environmental variables surrounding food choices. This program is intended to be followed over a course of several months, to help you adapt new skills surrounding weight loss and walk you through any challenges. The wedding weight loss package does not incorporate “dietary fads” or “magic diet pills” but rather strategies that you can carry with you to sustain a healthy happy marriage for the rest of your life.
