The Right Way to Break your Fast in Ramadan
Fasting in Ramadan is compulsory for Muslims; it is also a part of a healthy regimen for both your body and mind. Fasting from dawn to dusk, not consuming both liquid and food during Ramadan affects your metabolism, making iftar an overwhelming time for your digestion. Breaking your fast the right way can help your digestive system and ease them during iftar.
Here is the right way to break your fast in Ramadan.
Break your Fast with Dates
Dates provide the necessary sugars and nutrients to break the fast without allowing you to get too full.
Eat slowly. This will give your digestive system a fighting chance to properly process your food; this will support your metabolism and discourage weight gain.
Drink water to hydrate your body at iftar before eating and then continue to sip water throughout the evening. This will also regulate your appetite.
Sugar, especially in carbonated drinks and juices will send your blood sugar soaring and encourage weight gain.
Choose Food Wisely
Make healthy choices in iftar and suhoor. Choose grilled or baked food instead of fried, light sauces instead of creamy ones and limited portions of white rice and bread.
Keep yourself healthy during Ramadan. Consult with your doctor for more information about fasting, book your doctor’s appointment online at Okadoc.
