Frida Harju-Westman, in-house nutritionist at the health app Lifesum, comments on the things you can do to keep fit during the run-up to your big day.

But the truth is, sugar simply isn’t great for the body. Not only that, it is addictive and that quick pick-me-up will only leave you more exhausted in the long run.
