The complete guideline of Ramadan diet plan
Ramadan diet plan is important for fasting people. After a year, Allah SWT has graced us with another Ramadan. We are thankful to Him for making us capable of fasting in His name. And as we already know, the Arabic calendar spins around the English year. Each year, each month is preceded by 15 days compared to last year. For this spinning this year, the month of Ramadan has come during full summer.
Summer itself is demanding. It demands lots of water and salt in your system. But due to Ramadan, you can’t have water all day as prescribed for the normal time. So what should you do to keep your health free from problems while fasting? Medical doctors and dietitians have advised some ways through which you can keep your body strong and prevent it from falling.
Dr.RazeenMahroof, an anesthetist from Oxford, says feasting during the non-fasting hours can be unhealthy. He recommends approaching the fast with discipline, or an opportunity to lose weight and be healthier could be wasted.
“The underlying message behind Ramadan is self-discipline and self-control,” he says. “This shouldn’t fall apart at the end of the day.”
He advises taking foods from all major food groups. Fruits and vegetables, bread, cereals, potatoes, fish, meat, milk and dairy products, and foods containing fat and sugar are recommended. Eating dates, as per the Prophetic tradition, can give you an instant surge of energy. Fruit juices also provide a similar amount of energy. You should also drink lots of fresh water.
Alternatively, the foods that are deep-fried or contain high sugar and high fat are always to be avoided. Instead, you should go for shallow fried recipes and baked foods.
Ramadan comes to us as learning to avoid over-consumption. We should always keep that in mind. We won’t eat so much that it doesn’t go with the main essence of this holy month. Let Allah continue to embed His grace upon us and enable us to fast for many more years in good health.
