Guide to Healthy Eating During Ramadan

United Arab Emirates, 20 May 2019 -- Muslims across the world fast during daylight hours for 29 to 30 days this holy month of Ramadan. Muslims taking part in Ramadan do not eat or drink anything during dalylight.

Muslims eat one meal before dawn called Suhoor, and break their fast with a meal after sunset called Iftar.

Fasting is obligatory for health muslims except children, pregnant or breastfeeding women, and people with diabetes, or people who are ill.

Most people who fast during Ramadan will experience mild dehydration, which may cause headaches, tiredness and difficulty concentrating, depending on the length of fast. Studies show that fasting is not harmful to health, as long as enough fluids are consumed after breaking the fast.

Here are some tips on healthy eating habits during Ramadan:

• Eat fiber rich foods like fruits and vegetables.
• Break your fast with dates.
• Eat slowly, especially after Iftar to avoid indigestion.
• Drink plenty of water with meals, and before sleeping.
• Have a bowl of soup.

What to avoid during Suhoor and Iftar

• Avoid consuming coffee or tea before fasting.
• Avoid eating foods that are high in sugar, or deep fried.
• Avoid salty food like salty peanuts, pickles, chips, and food that contain soya sauce.

• Choose high fiber or whole grain varieties where possible.
