Pre-Wedding Advice: Diet
Firstly, you have to identify your time frame. The longer, the better it is.

Start eating 6-7 small meals throughout the day. Remember to space them evenly. Do not skip your meals! Kick start your day with a wholesome breakfast. Never skip your breakfast, as it is a way you start your body's engine. Having smaller meals will keep you feeling full and that in turn will lessen your cravings for junk food.
