Pre- wedding diet plan for bride by Dr. Blossom Kochhar, Founder & Chairperson of the Blossom Kochhar Group of Companies

A wedding is the most important and special day of every bride’s life. With all eyes on bride, she would want to ensure that she look nothing less than a queen on her big day. However, a good figure and glowing skin cannot come to her in a day. She needs to plan in advance and follow a healthy lifestyle to look flawless on her D-day said Dr. Blossom Kochhar, Founder & Chairperson of the Blossom Kochhar Group of Companies institutionalized’

Wedding Day — the day she wants nothing but to put up her best appearance. After much deliberation, planning and anticipation arrives the day in a girl’s life where she wishes all eyes behold her beauty. YES! The day of her wedding; that she is a bride and a cynosure of all eyes. The excitement and stress to begin a new life with a new set of people however can take a toll on skin and health. The wedding dress that won’t fit a day prior and that pesky pimple out of nowhere are the worst nightmares to have.

I would advice any bride to drink warm water every morning. This will start the detoxification process. Before starting the day drink one litre of water. Add to this a few slices of lemon and continue drinking that water. This will help you reduce the alkaline content in your system.


There are various food items that can aid your skin to glow. Remember to add adequate quantity of fruits and vegetables to your daily diet. Do not forget to drink lots of water and try to avoid oily food. Include watermelon, grapefruit, lettuce and broccoli in your diet to hydrate the skin. Fresh fruit juices will aid the process.

She should include dried fruits like figs and dates and nuts like almonds in her diet.  It is best to follow a light vegetarian diet. Avoid eating junk food for breakfast. Eat a bowl of sprouts with egg whites.

At night follow a light diet. A glass of milk with one or two saffron strands at night will also help her skin become smooth.

Avoid eating dairy products/chocolates/oily food if at all you are suffering from pimple outbursts. Avoid eating food/vegetables/fruits that you are allergic to.

The diet has to include food that will mineralize your system. Along with fruits and vegetables include sprouts and paneer (cottage cheese) in your diet. You can also eat brown bread or rotis with the vegetables.

Ensure that your chicken and fish is grilled or in salads. Combine it with vegetables to make sure that it is easier for digestion. Your system will be cleansed and mineralized. So you can indulge in the food that you enjoy eating. But don’t overdo it. Eat six light meals instead of three heavy ones.


Exercise 1: Remember to go for a morning walk when the air is fresh. This does wonders to your body and skin. Regular walking and exercise will get your blood circulation going and will also keep the body toned and fit. Nothing can substitute for an outdoor walk. Also do some light exercise, following the walk. While doing the work-outs pay some special attention to your problem areas to keep them toned.

Exercise 2: Continue with the morning walk/exercise routine. Increase your focus on problem areas or areas that you want toned. Exercise brings about suppleness in the body which makes you feel good. Any walk/ exercise routine has to be done at a steady pace for atleast 40 minutes for it to start working on you.
