2. Say 'No' To Sugar

3. Throw Away Packaged Food
Give up on processed and frozen foods or anything that comes in a pack, replete with preservatives and harmful chemicals. You really don't want to stuff your body with that stuff, right?
4. Eat Healthy
This one is a no-brainer. Eat more of fresh fruits, green vegetables and protein-rich foods to get over the energy hump. All that running around takes away a lot from you, so replenish your body with these foods.
5. Reduce Or Eliminate Fat From Your Diet
Go for low-fat dairy and avoid fats in the form of cheese, excessive oil, butter and more such fattening foods.

Remember, there are no quick fixes or shortcuts, and last-ditch efforts don't really work. Amid all the commotion of wedding preparations, you may not have much time to slog in the gym for hours. So, follow these genius diet tips and work your way into a leaner body for the D-day.
