If you’re fretting about how to stay in shape during the wedding season, we’ll let you in on 5 secrets that are sure to keep you healthy, no matter what!
As soon as November comes around, the wedding invites come spilling in. And while each function promises to be fun, we all can’t help but wonder what’s going to happen to all the hard work we’ve put in the entire year to stay fit. Making sure your healthy habits aren’t forgotten in all the merriment, here are five tips that are sure to help you stay healthy during the wedding season.
1. Say yes to water
In between the dancing and catching up with people, it is easy to forget to hydrate yourself. Not sipping on water during the night can lead to dehydration, fatigue and even nausea. So make sure you excuse yourself from the conversation or the dance floor and take a water break. Your body will thank you for it later.
2. Do not over indulge
We’ve all been there; walking pass the buffet and picking up everything in sight, wolfing it down and coming back for seconds. While you might convince yourself that it’s only this one meal and tomorrow will be back to eating healthy, that’s rarely the case. Our advice? Eat a small meal at home that contains lean protein. Lean protein is very satiating and can help you avoid munching unnecessary throughout the night. Meats, beans, nuts and seeds are the way to go this wedding season.

3. Green tea is your savior
So you gave in and had that slice of cake. Or partied till sunrise. Don’t worry, all is not lost. Flush out the toxins—and the night before—by sipping on some high quality, whole-leaf green tea. Known for its many health benefits, a nice cuppa is sure to get you recharged for the next function. We suggest you try Gardner Street’s Detox Tea. This high quality, antioxidant rich green tea contains diuretic lemongrass and the super digestive ginger that’ll cleanse your system in no time.
4. Skip the shots
Now we know it’s hard to avoid alcohol during a wedding, but there are ways to consume alcohol that won’t undo everything you’ve worked so hard for. Say no to shots and cocktails, as they are high in calories and sugar. Instead, sip on a glass of red wine. If red wine is not your thing, why not try a Skinny Bitch – Vodka, Soda, Lime! Not only is it low in sugar and calories, it also makes sure you stay hydrated.
5. Dance it off!
We all know that wedding parties tend to last until the wee hours of the morning and we wouldn’t want you to leave all that fun! But make sure you make the most of it. Grab your friends and get on the dance floor! This will help you work off the indulgences; and keep you away from the bar and the buffet. Who knew having fun could be so good for you!
