How many of you intend to lose weight during this Ramadan but end up gaining it? If that is you then don’t stress about it as in this article I will guide you through some easy and simple 5 steps that you can use to lose weight.
You do not have to follow these tips for just Ramadan as you can imply this method all over the year if you are willing to lose some pounds.
1.Drink Plenty OF Water
Staying hydrated is the key to lose weight even though it is very difficult to drink water while fasting for 17+ hours. Also, you will avoid eating sugary food when the fast is over and will help you become less dehydrated when fasting. We are required to drink 8 glasses of water daily.
Below I Have a Plan You Can Follow to Drink all Eight Glasses of Water:
- Drink 2 glasses of water during Suhur (Start of Fast)
- Have 2 glasses of water during Iftar (End of Fast)
- Finally, drink 4 glasses of water in between Iftar and Suhur.
2. Avoid Having Oily Food During Iftar
After fasting for a whole day we desire to eat the unhealthiest fried foods when opening our fast such as Pakore and Samosas as well as some high sugary drinks. At that point, you ignore your calorie intake and eventually you exceed your calories. Therefore, to meet your aim of losing weight you have to stay away from cakes, pastries, fried food, biscuits, and crackers. These foods have very fewer nutrients and are rich in fat so they are very toxic to weight loss.
SO AVOID JUNK FOOD ALWAYS!
3. Never Skip Suhur
It will be very difficult for you to stay hungry the whole day if you did not eat during the suhur. Hence, this will make you consume more food than you normally eat in iftar. Therefore, you’re likely to gain weight instead of losing it.
4. Be Active The Whole Day
Fasting does not give you an excuse to become lazy and sleep for the whole day. Instead, you should begin a new healthy life by carrying out with your normal activities and do little exercise when your fast is over. For example, burpees, squats, sit-ups, and lunges. This will help you burn fat and you do not have to go to the gym to carry this workout.
5. Eat Protein Either on Iftar or Suhur
Protein is used to repair and build our body tissues such as bones, muscles, skin, and cartilage. Furthermore, protein makes you stay full for a long period of time so it will help you during fast and it will reduce your calorie intake. Therefore, protein plays an important role in the diet all over the year. Some examples of protein are chicken breast, lean meat, eggs, beans, seeds, and nuts.
