It’s that time of year when the dining tables are piled high with a variety of meals, the majority of which are not healthy foods, and our phones are inundated with Ramadan greetings and well wishes. Many people believe that because they fast throughout Ramadan, they will lose weight. However, in accordance with our customs, the entire meal is served at Iftar and includes a variety of dishes, including those that are fried and therefore healthy.
Let’s discuss what kind of Ramadan diet or regimen you should follow in order to be healthy and reduce weight. Prior to Ramadan, decide what to eat:
Plan your Suhoor and Iftar meals for the beginning of the week, make an effort to incorporate healthy foods, and focus on eating a variety of fruits and vegetables and protein-rich dishes. Advice for Sehri
- When you wake up for Suhoor, drink a glass of water first, then have a protein-rich food like an egg, yogurt, or something similar.
- In addition, you can include foods high in carbohydrates like oatmeal, brown rice, dry fruits, etc. You’ll feel fuller for longer if you eat these meals.
How should Iftar be conducted?
*After eating dates during Iftar, try to follow them with a fruit before having a non-fat dinner consisting of potatoes or making a salad with boiling potatoes.
- Avoid dehydration during Ramadan by drinking water after breaking the fast whenever you have the opportunity rather than cold beverages or juices like coconut water.
- Physical activity should be done every day for 30 minutes when fasting; this is crucial.
