Eat Healthy during Ramadan

Fasting for religious purpose is meant for both physical and spiritual cleansing. Gorging on food after breaking the fast, then spending the evening snacking on foods that are high in calories is bad for anyone's health. A lot of people even experience headaches and acidity during Ramadan. It is little wonder that by the end of the fasting period, many have gained weight and get their body into an unhealthy mode.

So here are some pointers that will prevent headaches, acidity or weight gain during Ramadan:

  • ·         Hydrate yourself well: At least 2 litres of water daily for suhoor and iftaar
  •      At the time of breaking the fast, start by drinking plenty of water, which helps re hydration and reduces the chances of overindulgence. It's important to have some fluids with vitamins, such as tender coconut water or fresh fruit juices.
  •       Avoid tea or coffee as these drinks will dehydrate you
  •        Avoid packaged and sweetened juices or beverages
  •      Nuts like almonds, walnuts, dates [in monitored quantities] will provide a burst of energy and can be taken while breaking the fast. Fresh Fruit will also have a similar revitalizing effect.
  •       Add milk to the diet, which will keep your energy levels constant
  •       Do not increase any intensity of workout during this period
  •       Include pomegranate juice in the morning as it will not make you thirsty
  •       For iftaar, one can include sprout chat, kala chana chat, fish, egg whites, slim milk, chapattis.

We wish everyone who observes the blessed month of fasting a peaceful, healthy and happy time with family, friends and community.
