Breaking Your Fast

 

Anybody claiming that fasting is easy are lying to themselves. Either one day, one week, or a whole month, fasting can be a challenge. During Ramadan it may be more especially if Ramadan happen to fall during summers. Although fasting done right can be beneficial to the over-all health of an individual. It detoxifies your body of impurities, thus improve skin health, promotes new cell regeneration, increases immune system function, lower blood pressure & cholesterol. After about 6-8 hours into your fast, the body starts burning sugar stored from fats, thus can promote weight loss. Apart from weight loss, obese individuals can "reset" hormones in their bodies that regulates & sends the proper signal into the brain that they are full, this gets messed up with excessive food intake.

But also in the same context, fasting can have bad side effects if not done right.  One of the most common ones is dehydration, thus prior to the fast, people are advised to get plenty of fluids in, water preferably, so as not to get too much sugar into the bloodstream. Another is heartburn, since lack of food tends to produce more stomach acids. During fasting, your metabolism rhythm gets disrupted & after breaking the fast, people tend to indulge in more food to compensate for the lack of it during the day. It would be so bad if we negate the positive benefits of fasting by trying to get more food into our system, which could also upset your stomach. We must ease our metabolism back into proper digestion by eating & swallowing slowly. During Suhoor, it is best to consume protein-rich, slow burning food like eggs, wheat, & oats. We have prepared a Suhoor and Iftar food recipes that are so easy to prepare & very healthy too. Take a look below.

So in conclusion...

  1.  Hydrate before engaging in fasting.
  2.  Eat protein-rich & slow-burning food during Suhoor.
  3.  If you must, take your food supplement during this time to compensate for the lack of vitamins & minerals in your food.
  4.  Ease your stomach back into proper digestion during iftar.
  5.  Eat slowly, chew your food well to release enzymes to aid proper digestion.
  6.  Do not overeat.
