How to Eating Healthy in Ramazan and Hair Care made Easy

Eating Healthy in Ramazan

Ramazan is a time for self - discipline and promoting good eating habits. Fasting cleanses your system and activates your digestive system. However, you need to be careful of what you eat in order to get the most form it. So keep the following in mind: 

(1) Eat a healthy mix of Meat, Fruit, Vegetables, Milk, and Cereals. The maximum calorie intake you required per day is 2,000 to 2,500, depending on your weight, height and physical activity.

(2) At Sehri, a cup of milk, a Shami kabab or an omelette with vegetables, fruit, and two slices of bread or a chappati, will give you a balanced 600 to 700 calories, to get you through the day.

(3) At Iftar, a few dates, a cupful of fruit or gram chat, dahi baras with a samosa, and a glass of fruit juice will provide you at least 900 calories. Follow this up with a light and early dinner, if you like.

(4) Don't drink too much water immediately after Iftar. To avoid dehydration, drink one to two glasses before Sehri, and four to six glasses between Iftar and bed time.

(5) Avoid overeating. It will overload your digestive system. Avoid fried food and bakery items.

(6) Avoid exercising immediately after Sehri or Iftar. The best time to exercise is either before, or two hours after Sehri and Iftar.

(7) If you suffer from diabetes, ulcers, cardiovascular or renal disorders, or you are an expectant mother, you must consult your physician before fasting.
