Don’t starve yourself. Just eat sensibly. Fruits and veggies. Whole grains. Stay away from anything with a lot of salt or caffiene.

I would mostly avoid salty food, obviously. Maybe raw veggies?

Lol at your mom’s comment though. Sounds like something my mom would suggest!!

Well, don’t starve yourself obviously:)  But here’s my best advice:

(1) take midol – I find it really helps with period-related water rentention

(2) no soda; only water and LOTS of it

(3) no salty foods

(4) for this short term purpose, i’d go for low carb – eat only lean proteins and veggies (remember, no salt)

I think not eating is probably a bad idea. Chances are if you’re feeling a bit cranky right now, you’re not going to be in any better of a mood once you’re hangry! Besides, you’re going to want to eat at the wedding, so I would get the fitting done true to your body. Just eat healthy for the next few days and it’ll be fine! If this is your first fitting, you’ll have another for any further adjustments correct?

Speed up your metabolism by eating small meals every 3 hours that have lots of fiber (veggies and fruit) and lean protein. Go low low carb for these few days too and lay low on the salt.

Good luck!

oh…I agree with grape. I love frozen grape. Takes longer to eat (nibble on them since they are so cold) and fills you up cause they take so long to eat 🙂

don’t do anything extreme– you’ll just bounce back. try not to eat like crap, drink water, wear spanx, and remember that it’s better to have to take something in more than have to let it out.

Things to eat (and I advise this for only a short period of time – everything in moderation):

Proteins – grilled chicken, tuna (NOT tuna salad)
Veggies & Fruit with high water content – salad (NO dressing), carrots, celery, grapes

Things to avoid:

Bread, crackers, salt, soda, coffee, bananas (they actually can make you bloat a bit), starches (potatoes)

@Kittyachi AMMMMMEEEENNN to “I think I’d rather be a fat bride than go without coffee.”

Just be happy to be getting married and be yourself….oh well if they have to let the dress out a tiny bit, I am sure it is not the end of the world.

Camrie is exactly right ! All of those foods are perfect. Melon has high water content as well.

You’ll be okay with a little coffee, just drink tons of water before and after.
