How to lose weight in Ramadan

With fasting extending from sunrise to sunset in Ramadan, it is surprising that rather than losing weight many people end the month a little heavier than they started.On the other hand, it can also be the perfect opportunity for the new healthy beginning your body has been craving.


• Two glasses at iftar (the breaking of the fast)

• Four glasses in between iftar and suhur (the meal before the fast) - not more than one glass per hour

• Two glasses at suhur

Have a light,yet balanced Iftar

1.      Avoid overeating at iftar and end your fast with fruit salad and non-sugary food items.

2.      Eat slowly and chew every bite of food to the end, which will make you eat less during iftar.

3.      Eat the main course of the meal an hour or two after iftar so your body can digest food without overloading your tummy.

What to eat at iftar and suhour

1. Replace fried, oily and fatty food with baked items, fresh fruits, salad, dates and a glass of skimmed milk.

2. Have your dinner at least an hour and a half after iftar with a fair portion of vegetables, carbohydrates and proteins to meet your body’snutrition requirements.

3. Replace red meat such as beef with white ones like skinless chicken and fish to include healthy proteins in your diet.

4. Eat more fruit and salad if you get hungry between iftar and suhour. Avoid sugar-based items such as soda and caffeinated beverages.

5. Optimise your fluid intake during non-fasting time by drinking 6-8 glasses of water.
