1. JUNK FOOD
Wedding stress could easily lead you to stress eating. Fries, pizza, chocolate, and doughnuts may relieve your stress at the moment; but they are going to create a big problem for you later.

These items can increase your blood sugar level, which could result in sugar cravings and could have a harmful effect on your energy level. But here are some Healthy Fast Foods that won’t make you fat.
Surprised to see beans on the list?? There is a reason why it is here. Been contains a type of sugar that our body cannot digest. When that sugar reaches the large intestine, bacteria try to elucidate it and this process forms gas in our system. It is better to go for high protein food like chicken or fish to keep your gas level down.
Lactose intolerance is one of the common food sensitivities around which results in bloating, gas and cramps. You may or may not be insensitive to the dairy products but let us not take a risk; after all, it is your big day. Try avoiding the dairy items a month before the wedding. But you can have a small serving of Greek yogurt as it helps in digesting the food efficiently.
4. ARTIFICIAL SWEETENER

You may have switched your fake sugar for the real one, but you can find it in diet soda, sugar-free candy, etc. whether real or fake it is better to cut back on sweeteners before the wedding. It will make you feel much lighter and energized.
5. SALTY FOOD
The salty food contains sodium and sodium cause you to retain water. You must absolutely avoid salty food products a month before you walk down the aisle. Your salt intake per day should be 2,300 mg or under that.
Gluten doesn’t affect everybody in a negative way, much like dairy items. But it could cause cramps, gas, and bloating. Let’s keep the odd on your side and avoid eating gluten a month before the wedding day. But keep sure to feed your body with fiber from other places.

Cold drinks, champagne, soda, avoid anything that has bubbles. The bubbles give that special fizz to the drink and to your body also. They release carbon dioxide which makes you feel gassy and bloated at the same time. These are one of the foods you should never eat.
8. CRUCIFEROUS VEGETABLE
We are not the one to advise you to cut down on nutritious vegetables but avoiding cruciferous vegetables are a good thing if you are aiming for a flat stomach. Cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, etc. has the same effect as the beans. They all have sugar that is elucidated by the bacteria leading in bloating and gas. Try to keep the intake to the minimum and eat the cooked instead of raw.
People who have tried one can be vouch for it when I say they will make you feel like a puffed marshmallow. That is defiantly not the aim you have to look in your white dress. It gives you gas and weakens your digestive system so cut down alcohol month leading to the wedding.
10. CHEWING GUM
