Here are some healthy tips to end your Ramadan fast.
1. Eat meals, not feasts
Many people eat without thinking while breaking their fast at iftar. It is a natural reaction to overeat after a whole day of fasting, but overeating causes discomfort in the abdomen and eating a lot at a time causes shock to your stomach.
Eat your dinner normally and forget that you just fasted the whole day. That way, you can eat moderately enough.
2. Never skip suhoor
An integral part of Ramadan is suhoor, the traditional pre-dawn meal. Many lack the stomach for a meal in the dark before sunrise, but suhoor is essential for you to get the energy and to get through the fasting hours.
Eat high-fibre and high protein meals with healthy fats. Avocado is an excellent source of fat and will help release energy throughout the day.
3. Work out before eating
Experts say it’s essential to maintain an active lifestyle; they recommend low-intensity workouts. Expert suggests working out in the pre-dawn hours, before suhoor.
If you’re not an early riser, you can exercise during iftar, after drinking water and eating a portion of complex carbs and veggies, then eat proteins when you’re done.
Weight and interval training is excellent for Ramadan as reducing cardio exercise is recommended. The body will change from its usual practice and will produce results. We recommend yoga, pilates and swimming.
4. Eat right and stay hydrated
Fasting weakens the body and breaks down muscle. To prevent muscle-breakdown, eat complex carbohydrates, healthy fats and protein to release energy slowly throughout the day. Don’t forget about your sugar cracings, do not overindulge in sugary drinks and pastries.
It is important to remember why you began the fast in the first place. The month is a period of self-growth. It provides the opportunity to practice self-restraint, cleanse the body and soul of impurities, and build a sense of community.
It can also offer a sense of solidarity with those who can’t afford food or material goods, and help inspire charitable acts throughout the year.
Stay healthy until the end of Ramadan, and we wish you and your family a happy and blessed Eid al-Fitr!
