The wedding season has kicked in and that means the next few months are dedicated to planning a wedding or being a serial wedding attendee.  If you find yourself in the former category, you may also be looking to tone up, shed a few kilos, or simply just be the fittest version of yourself. With wedding season in full swing, back-to-back celebrations are a part-and-parcel of life. Hence, healthy plans often get sidetracked. To help you save time (and energy) we caught up with one of the leading fitness experts in the country Namrata Purohit, to know all about the best diet and fitness plans for brides and grooms.

The best diet plans for weight loss 
Contrary to popular belief, crash and fad diets are not the healthiest way to guarantee weight loss feels entrepreneur, and fitness expert,  Namrata Purohit. “A nutritional plan should be customized to a person’s needs and goals. It is important to start well in advance and make it a part of your lifestyle,” she further adds. But on your D-day, it’s not only about looking fit, but you want to glow, and for that truly lit-from-within look, Namrata is of the opinion that eating healthy is imperative. Good nutrition is key to looking healthy and fresh. In order to look healthy, and fresh, on the big day it’s crucial to eat healthily, eat enough and not less and get all the nutrients required. Don’t compromise on the quality of food, make sure you eat your fruits and veggies and get in all the nourishment required. Cut down or say no to fried food and sugar.”

Exercise for bride and grooms 
During the hustle and bustle of planning a wedding one may struggle to find time for him or herself. But taking out a few minutes daily to follow an exercise routine will benefit you in more ways than one. Other than helping you stay fit (and tone up), and reducing the guilt of gorging on those sweets, it also works as a de-stresser.

While the exercise routine changes from person to person depending on the body type and goal, Namrata believes in the concept of KISSS: keep it safe, simple and smart. She further says, “Pilates is a great form of exercise that can be customized to every individual’s goal and ensure no injury, and that the body feels strong and flexible as well as well-toned.”
Fitness tips for bride and grooms
Ahead Namrata Purohit shares some fitness and diet tips to help you sail through whether you’re tying to knot or not!
Light workout
No matter if it’s 10 minutes or 4 minutes, indulge in light workouts to stay active. The wedding vibe puts us in an eerie state but light workouts will keep your fitness levels intact without having to start from square one.

Dessert strategy
The rasgullas, fried jalebi, and gulab jamuns are no doubt mouth-watering making us gaga over them. But the best way to satiate your sweet tooth cravings is to switch to fruit desserts, or simply eat less of the main course to make room for the dessert. Balance is key, believes Purohit.
Don’t go above and beyond with alcohol
Alcohol is the real troublemaker when it comes to those extra (and hidden) calories in your diet. Despite that, it seems unfair to ditch them. Instead, try drinking lighter drinks like gin and tonic or compensate for the heavier drinks by drinking water right after it to feel fuller.
Gorge on raw food
Until the function or the d-day, try to switch to a raw food diet instead of cooked meals. This helps your body to detoxify the toxins to keep digestion in check.

Don’t eat with guilt
Your body tends to detect your anxiety, moods, and stress, hence releasing hormones that make you stress and eat more than usual. So promise yourself not to feel guilty and you will get through fit during the wedding season.
