So you have finally agreed to marry your phuppo ka beta, now what next? Even if you are a perfectly healthy brown girl with all the right curves and you’re tying the knot, rumour has it you would still have major doubts regarding your weight. It’s all a part of the pre-wedding ‘anxiety package’ and it’s completely normal, so you can breathe. How many times have you been bombarded with weight-loss totkaay from the ladies in your family? Have you tried everything from Rukhsana aunty’s special cinnamon tea to hakeem sahab’s fat burning powder? Are you still searching for results but getting absolutely no where? If that’s you, or someone you know who is super close to giving up on their dream of maintaining that bridal figure, hold it right there because we might be able to help you out.
Fruits & Veggies are your Best Friends!
If you are looking for an option that helps you burn calories without giving you wild cravings and making you hungry, a diet including vegetables and fruits in a good proportion is all that you need. You can add some steamed veggies to your daily lunch box mixed up with some pepper and salt with some sauce of your choice. Also, you can just pop up any fruit and vegetable that you can find in your refrigerator into your bowl, mix it up with some lemon juice, pepper and salt and there you go: the perfect substitute for your meal.
Avoid Unnecessary Snacking Throughout the Day
This is a Pakistani eating habit that we definitely need to alter, no kidding! Each one of us is accustomed to munching on something throughout the day, even if it’s just the all-time favorite nimko, too many snacks have become an integral part of our diet which is not so good. Being a bride would give you anxiety attacks every now and then, but make sure you do not binge on stuff throughout the day when that happens! Go for sugar-free chewing gum or herbal tea instead.
Give Fizzy Drinks a Break!
You can take a few sips from that Coca Cola botal on your wedding day, that is completely alright. But you need to cut down on all that carbonated drink intake in the pre-wedding season. It not only accelerates your blood pressure but also leads to excessive sweating. That’s much of a big ‘no’ for a bride, isn’t it? So why not substitute that with fresh juices instead?

Lastly, we understand that not every bride can make regular trips to the gym along with all the heavy shopping that’s going on. Nevertheless, you do need to keep yourself active and increase physical activity which you can easily do at home by following Nutright workout routines by downloading mobile app. Everyone in the family is going to tell you to ‘rest and take your beauty sleep’ along with all those pampering body massage and ubtan sessions that would make you lazy anyway. So why not the next time you hit the mall to get that one last pair of khussa to add, take the stairs instead of the elevator?
Simple as that. Small things count!
