EAT FIT FOOD’s 20 Day Bride Overhaul

Ask any bride and they are sure to tell you that on their wedding day, they want to look the best they have ever looked for their lucky husband to be. In preporation for this many brides embark on a weightloss regime that is not only unhealthy and unsustainable, but often causes more harm than good. A woman’s health should never be compromised, especially leading up to one of the most important days of her life. 

EAT FIT FOOD provides a healthy, simple, easy program for brides that not only want to look their best, but want to feel amazing too. With EAT FIT FOOD’s special 20 Day Bride Overhaul, brides can not only expect to trim down and shed any unwanted weight, but also their eyes will sparkle, their skin will glow and their hair will be extra shiny! 

The food philosophy at EAT FIT FOOD is simple; eat fresh, flavoursome, wholefoods just as Mother Nature intended! The fresh food is high in vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fibre which are all vital if you want to look and feel your best. Including lots of fresh foods in your diet means you are less likely to over eat and therefore, it is easier to lose and maintain weight. Fresh produce also gives you more energy and leaves you feeling happy and healthy! 

"There is so much to organise when it comes to getting ready for a big event… whether it be a special birthday, an awards night or the biggest event of all – your wedding! It is on these occasions that you to not only want to feel your absolute best, but also look gorgeous as well. Since I discovered EAT FIT FOOD preparation for big events is easy! I order myself meals from EAT FIT FOOD, make sure I am drinking lots of water and try my best to do a little bit of exercise each day. EAT FIT FOOD delivers fresh, calorie-conscious, portion controlled meals to my door – nothing frozen and no shopping, cooking or cleaning chaos for me! If only I knew about EAT FIT FOOD back when I walked down the isle on my big day”! – Lindy Klim
