How to Maintain Your Healthy Habits during Ramadan

1.Avoid Fast Food for Breakfast: Fast food contains minimal beneficial nutrients and does not provide the energy that our body needs after a long day of fasting. Apart from being very rich in calories, it makes you gain weight really fast as well.
2.Instead of deep-frying your Sambousa, try using an air-fryer or even bake it in the oven.
3.Don’t turn the month of fasting into a month of laziness and sleep. Instead, try to do some light exercises such as walking before Maghrib, even if it’s for half an hour.
4.Break your fast with a few dates (an odd number) with a cup of water. Pray, and then eat your breakfast which should be a balanced meal containing carbohydrates, protein and fiber. For example, you can drink some soup with vegetable salad, a few pieces of Sambousa and some fresh juice.
5.I don’t recommend drinking concentrated or artificial juices as its high in sugar.
6.After the Taraweeh prayer, it’s better to eat fruits or healthy snack, instead of desserts.
7.Drink PLENTY of water.
8.Make sure your Suhoor contains oats. It’s a very healthy choice, since it makes you feel full for a long time in addition to being nutritious. 
9.There’s a misconception that says that Suhoor should be a big and fatty meal. That is not true; such meals will only make you feel bloated and hungry just around the mid-day.
