It is essential to keep yourself healthy during Ramadan. As we eat only during Suhoor and Iftar, both of these meals form an essential part of fasting.
While it’s a good idea to consume low Glycemic Index (GI) foods, both Suhoor and Iftar should be well-balanced with foods such as vegetables, meat, fruits and more.

Maintaining your energy levels and avoid the unhealthy food temptations during the month of fasting can be hard, so Okadoc is here to give you tips on what food you should avoid during fasting.
1. Fried and fatty foods
Fried foods are very high in fat and sodium, so eating them may increase fatigue and exhaustion caused by fasting in Ramadan.
2. Food with High Sodium Content
Sodium can dehydrate the body and retain fluids.
3. Sugary Food
Foods that contain large amounts of sugar are high in calories and inferior in nutritional value. These foods provide the body with instant energy that is quickly diminished.
4. Chocolate or Caffeine
Caffeine is a diuretic and can cause the body to lose fluids and other essential minerals needed during the day.
5. Carbonated Drinks
Carbonated drinks are generally bad for you. Avoid drinking processed beverages and carbonated drinks. Stick to regular water to soothe your thirst.
