Ramadan, being part of the five pillars of Islam, is celebrated by Muslims all over the world to bring themselves closer to God.

In this holy month, practicing Muslims will not be eating or drinking anything from dawn (Subuh) to dusk (Maghrib). This is to remind themselves of the less fortunate and at once recognize and appreciate their blessings.

Let's welcome this beautiful and holy month of Ramadan with the biggest smile and the warmest of tummies with these tips.

Stay Hydrated

We all know keeping our bodies hydrated is one of the most important things when maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The term 'eight glasses per day' has been engraved in our brains since we were young.

So how do you ensure you stay hydrated this Ramadan?

  • Drink water before having your meals when you break your fast

  • Incorporate soups as part of your meals

  • Be wary of the sugary drinks and fried food you consume

  • Drink loads of water throughout the night and during suhoor (sahur) time

Do Not Skip Suhoor

Suhoor, or pre-dawn meals, are as important as breaking your fast at dawn (iftar). As they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

During this holy month, suhoor is basically your breakfast and the meal you have during suhoor should sustain you throughout the day.

Waking up earlier than usual and preparing food for yourself sure does sound a tad bit tiring. However, if you skip suhoor, your body would only have food from the night before to sustain themselves - and that's not enough.

Balanced Meal at Iftar

It is imperative for you to remember that Ramadan is all about moderation. This applies to your meals at iftar too.

Instead of turning it into a feast full of fried food and desserts, you should be having a balanced and nutritious meal to break your fast.

Switch your desserts to dates and fruits to provide the right type of glucose in your body. Add in more vegetables and legumes in your meals so that your body is fueled with the right nutrients.

Remember that you need to take care of your body while bringing yourself closer to God.
