Fret not, for there is still plenty of time to introduce minor changes in one’s lifestyle routine and keep those pesky pounds at bay! Here are some healthy and natural tips to achieve healthy weight goals instead of crash diets or overzealous exercise routines:

In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), fat in the body is viewed as the result of accumulated phlegm and internal-dampness pathogens. Hence, adopting a balanced diet to maintain healthy spleen functions is one of the ways to address this issue. Identify your body’s constitution here to calibrate a diet choice that has a harmonious balance of Yin and Yang!

One good addition to any diet is Eu Yan Sang’s Slender Gold Slimming Essence, a natural and time-tested supplement that contains a mix of patented Garcinia, Green Coffee Bean Extract, and Oat Bran Fibre to activate fat-burning, increase metabolism, and suppress the absorption of carbohydrates, fat, and sugar.

Packed in convenient sachets for maximum potency and freshness, it is easy for any busy bride-to-be to enjoy a glass of it before a meal! For better results, complement this with the Pro-Active Pure Enzyme that strengthens digestive health and improves detoxification through its high-strength and patented probiotic-fermentation formula.

Keeping an environment that discourages unhealthy snacking habits could go could a long way in adhering to one’s weight management regime. However, if snacking is an unavoidable part of your routine, consider switching to healthier options that contain complex carbohydrates or high-fibre content such as Eu Yan Sang’s 33 Multi Grains Cereal.

3. Regulate sugar intake

How often do we find ourselves sipping on a sugar-loaded bubble tea or frappuccino while we’re working away? Probably too many times to be good for our sugar and insulin levels. Consider limiting the amount of sugar consumed on a day-to-day basis, as excessive sugar can easily lead to weight gain and a host of other health conditions such as high blood pressure and chronic inflammation!

Incorporating supplements such as Glucose Care can allow brides-to-be to still have the option of indulging in the occasional sweet treats without feeling guilty. The formula contains ingredients such as the patented Glucevia and Gymnemic acid, designed to improve sugar regulation while reducing sugar absorption — a win-win!

4. Get enough sleep

Last but not least, a natural way to manage weight gain is to ensure sufficient sleep and rest, especially if you are stressed out by the rigours of wedding planning. Prolonged stress is one of the key contributors to weight gain as it elevates cortisol levels and causes the body to be in a constant fight-or-flight mode, thus leading to cravings for high-sugar foods. 

Aside from trying out meditation or TCM movement methods such as Qi Gong to unwind with your partner, look to improve the quality of your rest with calming remedies like the Sleep Formula, designed to relieve restlessness and nourish the organs, such as the liver and heart, that are responsible for healthier sleeping patterns.
