Step 1: Drink water Drink plenty of water during fasting breaks. When you are fasting it is easy to become dehydrated. Dehydration can cause headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and irritability. Tip To determine the amount of water your body needs daily, divide your body weight in half. Half of your body weight is the amount of water you need in ounces. Step 2: Eat nutritiously Eat nutritious food when you break the fast. Stick to the major food groups including bread and cereal, milk and dairy products, fish, meat, and vegetables and fruit. Fruit assists with digestion and helps prevent constipation. Step 3: Eat slowly Eat slowly. The longer you chew your food, the less work your digestive track needs to do, absorbing more nutrients. Step 4: Don't skip Suhur Don't skip Suhur. Suhur, the pre-dawn meal, will give you the energy you need for your daily activities while fasting. Tip Eat wheat bran or oatmeal at Suhur. Wheat bran and oatmeal are great sources of dietary fibers. Dietary fibers help dissolve harmful toxins from the body. Step 5: Exercise Exercise, but be careful not to overdo it. Light exercise helps maintain your energy level when you are not consuming food. Step 6: Eat normal portion sizes Eat normal portion sizes at Iftar. Iftar should consist of a normal serving or less. Stay healthy during Ramadan, eating too much at Iftar can create an overload of sugar in the blood and cause damage to the body. Did You Know?
