Common mistakes in Ramadan:
Many sisters in Ramadan tend to become unhealthy than before. Insh a Allah if you avoid this common mistake you will have a better and healthier Ramadan..
1. Having Fired and cold foods at Iftaar time
Why: Whatever you eat at Ifaar time is aasimilated quickl and hence if you add fried spicy food it will be detrimental to your digestion and metabolism.
Solution: Start with date and have warm soup with some fruits. Take a small break for Magrib salah and eat a light dinner after that.
2. Drinking large amounts of water at iftaar time
Why: Filling the stomach with water is more strenuous to it than with food.
Solution: have a few sips at iftaar then a glass after every two hours.
3. Exercising directly after iftaar.
Why: the body’s blood flow is concentrated around the stomach at that time.
Solution: Exercise after two hours of eating to ease digestion.
4. Chewing and swallowing food fast.
Why: chewing food slowly can speed up digestion and help maintain your weight
5. Having dessert directly after iftaar
Why: they make you drowsy and sleepy 😴
Solution: leave at least a two hour gap between iftaar and dessert to stay fresh and awake for ishaa and taraweeh prayers
6. Consuming foods with high amounts of sodium
Why: Sodium triggers thirst through out the fasting hours of the day
-Solution: instead, eat foods that are high in potassium, they retain water and supress your thirst.
# Bananas are high in potassium. A banana at Suhoor time can control your thirst level through out the day.
# Best sources of potassium for Suhoor time:
