Marriage is one special day in all our lives. We spend months planning our marriage venue, caters, guest list, and many more. In major cases, brides what to stay fit on their wedding day and go for pre-bridal diet plans. More than 80% of Indian brides spend most of their time to take up a wedding diet plan.

But, why? Why you are looking for a fake beauty! Going for a one-month diet plan is no way a healthy practice for your health. There are people who take diets very seriously and go for diet pills, skip their meals, or even make themselves starve for one full day.

If you’re the one looking for a bridal diet plan to lose weight, then here I have listed some of the cautions that may occur due to sudden weight loss.

Change in metabolism rate

Metabolism rate is defined as a set of chemical compounds or reactions present in a living organism that functions to create or break the energy required for a living being. In simple terms, metabolism rate is that which your body burns calories or spread energy.

There are several ways our body metabolism burns the calories like through BMR, everyday activities, and exercises. It is well known that metabolism plays a major loss with body weight. Obesity is not only about the food we intake, but genes do matters. A sudden diet and exercise will reflect greatly in your metabolism rate.

Sudden starving, or diet will affect your immune system by damaging the intestinal tract. Instead of avoiding the food, make small changes in your food intake that maintain your BMR level and stay fit.

Nutrient deficiencies may show up in skin

A proper diet should involve equal sharing of all the nutrients in a measured quantity. If you’re cutting particular food products for a longer term then it shows up on your face. Lack of nutrient like iron deficiency ends up skin problems like itchiness, sore tongue, dark circles, and hair loss. And protein deficiency can lead to skin texture changes like scaly looks, rough red skin, and many more. Lack of Vitamin A and Vitamin K can lead to skin color changes and bruising.

Problem with fertility

It is always better to get knowledge about things before taking up. There are both advantages and disadvantages of taking up a one-month wedding diet plans. Though you can lose the quality of weight in a month, there are certain problems that carry for the lifetime.

If a woman as a healthy BMI rate with regular mensuration, then gradual weight loss with proper nutrient will not reflect a great impact on her fertility. At the same time, if too much weight is lost in a short period then it will lead to starvation mode and shutting down the essential nutrients involved in the reproduction of vital functions.

The first and foremost thing is that you will make your self-confidence low that is, you might achieve your desired weight loss for your wedding but later, when seeing your wedding photos, you will think like “I’m too fat now, I can never be as thin as on my wedding day!”. This will definitely put your hope down.
