I honestly am just going to try to eat like I normally would, and just stay away from foods that I know could give me trouble.

Do you happen to have a link to the article? I want to know the reasoning for avoiding those things.

A banana’s probably good because it will provide steady energy and help you feel full longer, and it comes in a nice little package!

I think the banana had some magic that helped calm you down, if I remember right (I know the thread you’re talking about). I’ll be avoiding carbonation and sodium to keep from retaining anything. I hardly do dairy (milk, anyway) but heck if I’m giving up cheese 🙂

I think on the day of, I’ll have some fruit but not so much to upset my stomach, a little bit of carbs/starch, and some protien. Once the ceremony is over, you best believe I am digging in to my reception meal and having cake (maybe even two pieces, dang it!).

Now I want cake. 🙂

I never really thought about what to eat and what not to eat. Hm, maybe oatmeal? I only suggest it because it usually keeps me fuller longer. Something that will keep your energy up, for sure.

 

But I seriously want cake now.

From the other side. I must admit I didn’t put too much though into food. I woke up around 6am and eventually started my day with iced coffee and a giant chocolate chip cookie (because the good munchkins were sold out) around 9. I was pretty much not hungry but then had a glass of champagne with my girls before our 1:00pm ceremony. We had some time to commute to the photo location and then got to the reception but took photos through cocktail hour. By 5pm I was hungry and ate the apps. that were waiting at our sweetheart table (ask your caterer to save you a selection if you are skipping cocktail hour). We had some toasts (wine) and I ordered a diet coke. Dinner was served, I ate my salad and asked them to hold my plate in the kitchen as I was not hungry. I spent the night socializing, drinking wine and diet coke and water. At 10pm we served cake and ice cream and I had a slice and a scoop. All in all, I didn’t eat much but this is the first time I thought about it. I was not really hungry and I was not really drunk which I would expect now seeing my lack of food consumption. I think it was an adrenaline and caffiene kind of day.

You know your body the best and can decide how much or how little food you will want and what kind. I don’t think it should be a stress point at all but a banana is prob. an excellent idea.

I’ve had some stomach issues of late and one of the biggest things I had to compete with is bloating!! So I feel like a somewhat wealth of info here (lol jokes!)

But the best foods to eat is alkaline foods. So basically things with a low aciditysoap cut out citrus, coffee, most carbonated drinks (soda water is ok) andwall that give me 10 mins and I’ll get a link for you !!!

Basically this, anything that is in the alkaline foods help to make you non-bloated and keep you going. As for what to eat on your wedding day, I would keep things low-gi and basic in the morning. Just food to keep you going and not too much excess but after the ceremony Id say to eat what you want! After all you want to enjoy the day!

I had oatmeal with banana for breakfast, then when we were getting our makeup done we ordered salads to be delivered to the hotel. I really just ate some chicken, I was too amped up to eat.

I drank like 4 cups of coffee and 3 glasses of champagne too…sooooo I dunno how helpful that is!

What about sticking to a BRAT diet (like when you are sick?) Bananas, rice, applesauce, toast. Can’t really go wrong with that, and you will get protien, carbs, natural sugars, some vitamins…

Trust me it sounds easier than it is but I lost 10 kgs in 3 weeks using that method.
