But if we are not aware of our health during the fasting month, it could cause more harm than good to our body. Fasting in this blessed month carries a high risk of dehydration due to the limited foods and drinks we consume in this page, I’m going to share healthy tips for Ramadan for you all my Muslims fellas.
Healthy Tips During Ramadan
Ramadan is a holy month dedicated to prayer, self-introspection, Quran recitation, and fasting during the day. Healthy fasting is possible if you consume the right meals and stick to a healthy habit. Therefore, here are healthy tips for Ramadan:
- Avoid over eating during Iftar (dinner)
After fasting for the whole day. We tend to have more lust to eat this and that. Slow down, people. Iftar should be a well-balanced, nutritious meal and water. Excessive consumption of high-fat foods may result in indigestion and weight gain.
- Don’t skip Suhoor
Since you don’t have breakfasts in the morning in Ramadan. Suhoor or pre-dawn meal has become more important. Yes, having an interrupted sleeping sounds good, but you shouldn’t ever skip suhoor. Your body needs good nutrients to go through the day.
- Get an adequate amount of rest
You should have enough sleep in Ramadan as you do in regular months, 6 to 8 hours. Get a good night’s rest to avoid hydration and lethargy on the day.
- Drink water and drink water
Drinking more water as possible between iftar and suhoor can reduce the risk of dehydration during the day. You need to also cut off the caffeinated drinks because they promote fluid loss and has a diuretic effect.
Good luck on your fasting, guys. Marhaban Yaa Ramadan.
