Currently, Muslims in the world are conducting Ramadan fasting. However, for the first time, this year’s Ramadan fasting coincides with an outbreak of a disease, namely COVID-19.

Various concerns also arise whether fasting can reduce the immune system. Don’t worry, as long as you adopt a healthy lifestyle and maintain positive thoughts on yourself, your fasting will continue to run smoothly and healthily.

In our country, although there is a tendency for people to consume unhealthy foods, especially when breaking the fast, information about the importance of nutritious intake is always echoed. Here are some healthy ways you can apply to stay healthy during fasting, as reported by the Times of India page.

1. Stay Hydrated

Drink lots of water, which is two liters a day to keep your body hydrated. Drinking enough water will not only moisturize the body but will also act as a detoxification of the body.

2. Consumption of Fruits and Fibrous Foods

Eating foods that have a high water content such as cucumbers, tomatoes, watermelons, pumpkins, and oranges can be additional energy, increase the adequacy of your daily fiber, and make a sense of fullness more awake.

3. Avoid Caffeine

When fasting, avoid caffeinated drinks like coffee, tea, and cola. Choose sugary drinks with natural sugars such as pure coconut water or unsweetened juice. These drinks can help you provide a nutritional boost and soothe the stomach’s pH.

4. Avoid packaged foods

Avoid eating packaged and fast food that contains a lot of sodium because it can cause bloating, water retention, and easy thirst. Also, avoid foods that are served by frying when breaking the fast. 

5. Sahari with the Right Food

Foods Complex carbohydrate foods such as brown rice, whole wheat bread, yogurt, green vegetables, meat, and eggs are some of the best sources of food consumed at dawn.
