Well, fasting during the month of Ramadan is a religious duty, but it is also an excellent time for improving health, especially for weight loss and getting rid of obesity.
If you act sensibly in Suhoor and Iftar, you can lose several kilos of body weight during fasting.
Preparing for Sehri
According to experts, barley and grain bread should be made a part of Suhore so that the stomach can stay full for a long time.
Likewise, the use of caffeine i.e. tea or coffee should be avoided as these hot drinks can lead to dehydration and loss of water in the body which can also be harmful in this hot weather.
The experts further said that proteins and carbohydrates such as eggs, potatoes, curd, pulses, meat, etc. should be used so that the physical energy can be kept stable throughout the day.
A balanced Iftar
Add fruits and vegetables to the iftar instead of bread. Fruits and vegetables are nutrient-dense and low in calories, as well as can help you curb your appetite.
Replace high-calorie and fried foods with whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean meats.
Or if this is not possible, then eat whatever food is available, but in moderation, otherwise, overeating is harmful.
According to experts, after a day of starvation, the speed of metabolism has decreased and it is difficult to digest calories case of eating more at that time.
They also said that breaking the fast with dates is also the best because it is easy to digest and eating it helps reduce the feeling of hunger.
Similarly, dates also provide energy to the body while preventing overeating.
Don’t skip exercise
All over the world, people fast for 16 to 20 hours and consume small amounts of food at intervals of 4 to 6 hours to lose body weight and the same thing happens during Ramadan.
So by continuing to exercise during Ramadan, the calorie deficit can be used to advantage.
By doing this, the body fat level can significantly decrease, or in other words, getting rid of fat becomes much easier.
