Healthy tips for Ramadan
Drink lots of water.
You think you are drinking a lot but really you're not drinking enough. A person should drink a minimum 8 cups of water a day. Drinking between Iftar and Suhoor would be enough time to hydrate yourself.
2. Portions! Portions! Portions!
We can easily get carried away with excessive eating during Ramadan. That's why focusing on portions is crucial for your health. Focus on eating lean proteins, vegetables and fiber. Most importantly limit your sweet consumption.
3. Exercise regularly
Some research shows that exercising while fasting affects your metabolism that's linked to steady your blood sugar levels. This is particularly important for type 2 diabetes.
We encourage you to check with your doctor or nurse if you have any concerns regarding these tips for Ramadan.
