Every year, the Holy Month of Ramadan offers us the opportunity to break bad eating habits and give our overworked digestive systems a much-needed rest. Fasting, night prayer, and daily reading of the Holy Qur’an can have a transformative influence on our entire sense of well-being and satisfaction during this sacred month.

However, now that Ramadan has over, here are some ideas for keeping the amazing health advantages and habits that you worked so hard to develop during Ramadan.

Slowly Readjusting!

One of the best things you can do is eat more breakfast and eat less at night. Since the body does not engage in any form of physical activity at night, consuming too many calories should be avoided. This is necessary for the body to adapt to eating at fixed times. Keep fried and fatty foods to a minimum. Avoid foods containing simple carbohydrates and meals high in fat and calories. It is recommended to reduce caffeine consumption, as well as drinking soft drinks.

Stay Hydrated!

Make sure you stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. It is important to pay attention to your hydration levels.  They’ll also keep you satisfied and reduce hunger cravings.

Twice a week, fast

After Ramadan, try fasting two days a week. Intermittent fasting has been demonstrated to be advantageous to the body and mind in scientific studies. Periods of intermittent fasting have been demonstrated in studies to speed up the removal of wastes left by dead and damaged cells from the body. Scientists believe that the body’s inability to eliminate this waste on a regular basis contributes to the emergence of chronic diseases, particularly those related with aging, such as cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.

Slowly getting back to the gym.

As easy as going straight to a gym and beating weights and running a million miles in the first week, it’s not a sensible plan. You are at significant risk of injury. So, it’s best to start at a lower intensity than you’ve done before, such as brisk walking or jogging on the treadmill instead of a spinning class. Or reduce the intensity of your endurance training by reducing the amount of weight you use. Start slowly and build your strength gradually.
