Dr Iqbal, who is also head of SIUT Sukkur, said “In fact, many people end up inflicting more harm on their bodies in Ramadan than during other times of the year. Eating foods high in fat and sugar at wrong times affects the body,”
In order to keep their metabolism balanced, fasters should also exercise after breaking their fast,” he said. Dr Saboor Soomro also pointed out the importance of eating slowly and chewing carefully and advised fasters to drink lots of water.
Every day during the month of Ramadan, the fast begins right before dawn with a meal called Sehri and is broken after sunset with a meal called Iftar. Between the two meals, it is important to keep yourself hydrated and maintain the hydration levels in the body. The use of vegetables improve your health.
Sehri is a meal that needs to be chosen with care. You should choose foods that are wholesome and provide you with the required energy to keep you going for the entire day. Try and include some complex carbohydrates such as fruits, vegetables, chickpeas, lentils, etc. so that you are equipped with long-lasting energy.
