Wedding Day Beauty Countdown
Follow this timeline of beauty to-dos before you say your "I dos"
• Swap soft drinks for unsweetened green tea. It'll give you a caffeine boost without extra calories or sugar, plus it has plenty of good-for-you antioxidants.
• Drink lots of water. Often when we feel hungry, we're actually dehydrated, so drinking plenty of water can help curb those cravings.
• Start your meals with a salad or soup. Studies show that eating a healthy salad or broth (not cream) based soup can help you feel full, so you'll be less tempted to go for the bacon, burger, and fries.
• Give in to your cravings. If you're hankering for chocolate, don't deprive yourself -- it'll only lead to a massive pig out later. Instead give yourself a small serving of dark chocolate, it has less sugar than milk chocolate and more antioxidants.
If you are trying to lose weight before your wedding, set up a visit with a nutritionist so they can help you create a healthy eating plan, or consider joining a program like Weight Watchers for added help and support.
