Fasting is a practice that instills the virtues of self-control, self-discipline, sacrifice, and empathy. Starving yourself can be in general, a destructive practice to your body, but if done properly, a person can benefit from it, both spiritually and physically. The key thing is to understand the basic knowledge of food and the human body.’

Importance of water and hydrating foods

Since a person is prohibited from even drinking water during Ramadan fasting, dehydration is the greatest threat a believer will have to face. So, drink at least 10 glasses of water between Iftar and Suhoor. Also, try to include as many hydrating foods (watermelon, cucumber, tomato, etc) as possible in the diet. Avoiding caffeine-containing beverages is also a good choice since caffeine causes people to urinate more often, and cause dehydration.
For both, pre-dawn (Suhoor) and sunset (Iftar) meals, the importance of drinking plenty of water is of utmost importance.

Choose the right food

For the pre-dawn (Suhoor) meal, choosing a diet containing protein, carbohydrates, and essential fat is important. Suhoor should be a wholesome meal that should allow you to sustain yourself till Iftar. Try to include fruits and vegetables, beans, chickpeas, lentils, etc which contain complex carbohydrates that will provide the body with high and long-lasting energy.
For the Iftar meal, a diet containing vitamins, nutrients, and fiber is important. So, the traditional way of breaking the fast with dates is highly recommended since dates are the excellent source of fiber. For protein, include grilled or baked lean meat, skinless chicken and fish. Grains are also rich in fiber which makes it into the recommended category of food items in the Iftar meal.

Also, don’t overeat, and eat slowly. Stay Healthy.
