Tips For Healthy Fasting In Ramadan
Sufficient fluid intake
Fluids can be in the form of soups, juices or plain water.
Sufficient fluid intake is necessary to flush out the toxins, relieve the kidneys of the burden of concentrating the urine to maintain blood homoeostasis as well as to prevent dehydration.
Limit physical activity
During the day limit physical activity to prevent excess fluid loss from the body.
Have a balanced meal
Diet after fast should not be different from our normal routine diet. Make sure the meals contain complex carbohydrates such as whole grains and whole grain bread, meat (lean meat), beans, fruits and vegetables.
Balanced calorie intake
Healthy choice is water, fruit juice with pulp, soups (without cream).
Engage in light exercise like walk or stretching exercise. Ideal time to exercise is early in the morning, before fast or in the evening after fast.
