Secret weapon: Don't starve; snack
"Planning weddings can be a stressful time for many, and eating can easily become a coping mechanism," warns Junelle, Lupiani, a dietitian specializing in weight management and disease prevention at Miraval Spa in Tucson, Arizona. "In order to avoid using food as a way to deal with stress, I encourage brides-to-be to eat nutrient rich meals and snacks frequently.
Some smart snacks to try: Trail Mix (20 almonds, 2 tablespoons of dried cherries, and a few pieces of dark chocolate), an apple with string cheese, or a Lara bar, which typically contains only dates, fruit and nuts. Small, frequent meals that contain balanced energy help control your weight, help regulate mood and keep your hair and skin gleaming for the big day."
