For those who are interested in maintaining or even improving their health and fitness during Ramadan, here are some tips to help you achieve your goals.
Hydrate before eating
Drink plenty of fluids such as water, freshly squeezed juice, or milk.
Break your fast with dates
Traditionally, dates are eaten at the start of your iftar meal. Because they are a nutritious burst of natural sugar they fuel your body with much needed energy.
Eat your greens
Vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber and provide so many nutrients in so little calories.
Take it easy
Don’t be in a hurry to finish your food. After being deprived of eating for an entire day, overloading on food may lead to indigestion and other gastric problems.
Avoid foods high in fat, salt and sugar
Whenever possible, stay away from heavy meals for iftar that have too much unhealthy fats, salt and added sugar.
