Hi My Beautiful Bride!
Ok, so this post is a little “off the tracks” of a traditional wedding post. But in the theme of keeping it girlfriend-to-girlfriend here, healthy food is a beautiful thing but sometimes eating healthy food on the day of your wedding can give you some “unpleasant” results.
Now this is not saying to swear off these foods-it’s just that I’m not sure how many Brides realize which health foods can leave them bloated and gassy on their wedding day.
Complex carbohydrates and foods that are high in fiber keep your sexy body fit, full and healthy. And we all desperately need them in our life. But-when it comes to your wedding day-some of the complex carbohydrates can work against us. Complex carbohydrates are made up of more than one sugar unit and can also be referred to as oligosaccharides. There is a certain bacteria that live in our gut and love oligosacchardies and it produces Nitrogen gases which we release as flatulence (Everyday Healtlh). .
Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, peaches, and whole grains are just a few of the foods that can lead to gas. Side-note: If you have a dairy sensitivity or lactose intolerance it can make things worse as well.
Now Gorgeous-I’m not saying swear off the sexy.
Just for (one day) slightly minimize it.
And over a period drink plenty of water, eat slowly, and space your intake out.
After all – from your wedding day to beyond-it’s about loving every inch of your beautiful body!
