Definitely eat lots of fruit and veggies. Stay away from processed foods (so nothing boxed, I’d try not to eat out much) and go for whole grains when you do eat breads. Focus on the protein, as being protein deficient adds bloat. Stay far away from salt and carbonated drinks! Maybe plan out some meals beforehand so you’re not tempted to eat something that’s just around, like pizza or bagels?

You know, I was GOING to worry about this, but I didn’t and everything was fine. 

At the rehersal dinner the night before I had a spicy enchillada, bread & diet soda – big bloaters and stomach issue causers.  For breakfast the day off I had a bagel and fruit, and for lunch I had a PB&J.  Didn’t have any issues with bloating, upset stomach… I honestly think that a lot of that is caused more by nerves than your food.

The only thing I would recommend is to not eat anything that you haven’t eaten (edited to correct my awful spelling..) before, so that you don’t have a bad reaction.  If you are feeling bloated the next day, take gas-x or something like that.

Good luck!

This is a great question! I’m wondering this too, since I’ll be at my mom’s house in the days before the wedding, and she tends to stock up on potato chips, cheese, frozen foods, cold cuts, macaroni and cheese, white bread…basically everything I probably shouldn’t eat before the wedding.

I need to make a plan to avoid these foods! I’m interested in hearing everyone’s suggestions, I can only think that you should probably avoid all of the things I mentioned above and eat salads.

I was so terrible about this myself although I had the best of intentions … that last week I was just eating whatever, drinking beer, etc. I still lost weight, it was so cool. I’m sure that’ll never happen again! 🙂

However, if you do have the discipline … lots of water, obviously, and fruit. Some veggies are OK, others like broccoli can cause … issues. ha ha. Minimize sodium and anything processed.

Watermelon is my absolute favourite detox/diuretic … but be sure to eat it on its own and not with anything else.
