BOSTON (Dec. 11, 2009) – It’s no secret that the stress of wedding planning and the pressure to look perfect exacts a heavy toll on brides. In one highly publicized recent example, a UK bride-to-be died after 11 weeks on a 530-calorie-a-day diet. Her case may be extreme, but she’s not alone in resorting to drastic measures. According to a Cornell study published last year, one-third of engaged women employ extreme measures such as fasting or using diet pills to achieve their wedding-day ideal weight. To combat that unhealthy mentality, Bombshell Bride, LLC, a wedding diet, fitness and lifestyle company, recently launched an online magazine, www.Bombshell-Bride.com , to help brides-to-be achieve their wedding dress dream body through healthy habits and nurturing stress-relief articles.
Founded in 2008, Bombshell Bride, LLC is the creation of Boston-based Fitness Trainer and Lifestyle & Weight Management Consultant, Jill Tomich. “I was constantly shocked by the measures bride-to-be clients would go to in order to lose weight for their wedding day,” said Tomich, who also founded New England’s largest outdoor fitness company, Ultimate Bootcamp. “A history of crash diets was prevalent among many of the women, and they came to me seeking a lifestyle change. With my help and their dedication, they learned how to attain a body they would not only love on their wedding day, but also acquired new healthy habits that will last a lifetime.”
Tomich launched Bombshell-Bride.com to reach brides beyond the borders of Boston. Helmed by Managing Editor Diann Daniel, the website’s goal is to empower women with healthy tips to look and feel their best on their wedding day and beyond through inspirational real brides’ stories and from the guidance of health experts, including from Tomich herself, whose expertise has been cultivated from 11 years’ experience in the fitness industry. In early 2010, Bombshell-Bride.com plans to sell launch a series of wedding diet and fitness programs that will be sold through the website.
