Here Comes the Bride! How to Detox Your Way to the Wedding Day!

 

Many brides want to look their best on the big day and may even go to extreme measures to do so. Before you shell out major bucks on a juice cleanse or put yourself on a deprivation diet, follow these tips and tricks on detoxing naturally before the wedding.

 

Stop Eating Junk Food

Foods filled with sugar and fat are a fast ticket to weight gain, irritability, and low energy levels. One month before the wedding, consider doing an elimination diet by cutting out gluten, refined sugars, dairy, caffeine, and alcohol.

Banish the Bloat

No one wants to feel puffy and gassy on their big day. Try cutting the belly-bloating foods —  like dairy — from your diet starting two weeks before the big day.

Hydrate the Right Way

Now is the time to get rid of the empty calories found in soda and alcohol. Focus on hydrating with water, metabolism-boosting green tea, and nutrient-dense green juice.

Keep It Fresh

Get as close to nature as you can, and eat a diet filled with all-natural whole foods. Fresh, organic produce and pasture-raised lean proteins are a good place to start. Fresh, whole foods will help you maintain energy levels, promote healthy sleeping habits, and provide ample fuel for all your bridal bootcamp workouts!

 

Choose Foods With Detoxing Properties

Why not go an extra step by incorporating these foods with natural detoxing properties into your diet? They decrease belly bloat, aid in healthy digestion, help to alkalize the body, and more, so you're sure to feel lighter after eating these good-for-you foods. Some of them are-

Lemon Water

Lemons are a great source of vitamin C, which is known to help the body detox and burn fat

 

Dark Leafy Greens

There are a ton of ways to get leafy greens into your diet — eat them raw, throw them into a broth, add them to juices, or sauté them with a touch of olive oil. 

 

Fresh Fruit

Full of vitamins, antioxidants, fiber, and just about any other good thing you can name, fruit is a must for a healthy diet.
