Most people fill their stomachs with water before fasting in the morning. But remember, Allah Almighty has not created a camel system in the human body. For this reason, the water drunk in the morning is excreted in the urine in just two hours. And it also causes the body to excrete salts. This is why this method is not considered healthy.
Healthy Ramadan means special care during the state of fasting that not only keeps a person healthy but also enables one to gain the power of worship and good deeds. But unfortunately, it is generally observed that people go through carelessness during the month of fasting due to which they don’t enjoy healthy Ramadan.
Here’s a list of five things that one must do while fasting during the holy month of Ramadan.
Don’t run short of water
Generally, if Ramadan is in hot weather, then the main issue while fasting is lack of water. That is why as soon as people break their fast, they start filling their stomachs like a tank of water. The result is the heaviness that they feel afterward. Resultantly, it becomes difficult to carry out routine work after breaking the fast.
One needs eight to ten glasses of water in 24 hours, which is enough to keep the body system healthy. According to this calculation, it is enough to drink two glasses of water during Iftar. After that, by drinking one glass of water every hour, the body can be saved from dehydration.

Avoid excess sugar
Every one of us wants to break the fast with sweets. But breaking the fast with sweets and breaking one’s fast with sugar syrup are two different things. Using dates or fruits full of natural sweeteners to break the fast with sweets can not only provide instant energy to the body, but they are also free from any kind of negative effects.
But these sugary things increase the thirst for water on one hand whilst on the other hand their negative effects can lead to poor health. This sugar gives extra calories that lead to weight gain and it does not provide any kind of power in the name of nutrition.
Adopt a balanced approach for a healthy Ramadan
In the month of Ramadan, pakoras, parathas, and delicious dishes are all that appeal to everyone. But their indiscriminate use becomes the biggest obstacle to reaping the blessings of this month. Therefore if you are eager to eat such items use them in a balanced way.
Include vegetables and fruits in your diet instead of relying on fried foods or greasy foods. And do not miss the footsteps of moderation.
Prefer eating fibrous foods
Most people get constipation during the month of Ramadan. Gas bothers them during fasting. They are often seen visiting doctors. To avoid this, keep fiber intake in your diet as much as possible. Ground flour bread is the best solution instead of parathas.
Don’t use too much fat
Tr to decorate the iftar table with food items that are grilled. Excessive fat intake can lead to heart disease or it may cause an increase in cholesterol levels in the body which can be injurious to health. In short. with a little change in our diet, we can turn our Ramadan into a healthy Ramadan. Its bounties and blessings can be combined with health.
