The month of Ramadan Is very auspicious and holy for all the Muslims across the World. In this month of Ramadan, all Muslim observe fast and keep themselves away from food and water. During this month Muslims dedicate their time in prayers ( Dua, Zikr, Salat/Namaz).

We bring you the Ramadan Health Guide to keep your self fit and healthy throughout the month.

1) Your food must include all the daily food intakes you have which must include unrefined starches, lean proteins, more of  vegetables and fruits, low-fat dairy and healthy fats. This will give you macro nutrients (energy, carbohydrates, protein and fat), micro nutrients (vitamins and minerals) and fiber.

2) One must eat plenty of fiber-rich foods and you can break it easily in Ramadan. During sehri you can have whole-wheat toast with tea or coffee and cereal with some fruit. During Iftaar, one can have pasta or brown rice with lentils and vegetables, or a curry with whole-wheat roti. Avoiding fiber rich food can result in bloating or (ironically) constipation.

3) Consume good healthy lower fats or fat free food like monounsaturated (avocado, olives, olive oil, almonds, peanuts, pecan nuts, cashew nuts) and polyunsaturated fats (oily fish, seeds, soft tub margarine and vegetable oils). By adding a handful of nuts and seeds to your early morning or evening meal, you can be assured of some good, heart-healthy fats.

4) Break your meals in the evening. At the time of breaking fast in evening give space to it with snacks and dinner. Eat some snacks while breaking fast and then after a gap eat dinner and get good rest for the early morning meals or iftari.
