How to Lose Weight in Ramadan?
It sounds really good to lose weight for any obese person. What if you find a natural way of doing so? By doing the same thing, as millions of people all over the world do! This can only happen in one month.
Ramadan is the holy month of blessings for all the Muslims. Muslims keep fast from dawn to dusk everyday for the whole month. So, some of you might think it to be a natural way of weight loss. Yes, it is but in most of the case, you might end up in gaining extra weight instead of losing weight. This may sound strange but it is true.
The major reason is overeating at the time of iftar. People who have kept fast for more than 12 hours think that they are now deficit in nutrients so they should eat more, which is not the right thing to do. You can manage to lose weight during Ramadan very easily. Keeping fast doesn’t mean you don’t eat. It means you have changed timings of our meals and now there is a greater interval in-between them.
For losing weight in Ramadan, use plenty of fluids in both sehri and iftar. Eat moderately and use more proteins instead of carbohydrates. Muslims are fond of carbohydrates which are depicted from the food items available on their dining tables. Using more proteins will satisfy your appetite for a longer time period, therefore you will eat less.
Do your daily activities in a normal way. Don’t cut short your work. As I have mentioned earlier, only timings of meals shift in Ramadan, rest it is the same. Using fresh fruits and vegetables also help in weight loss. Use fibers rich food, this will help your body to get more nutrients with minimal amount of eating. Some fibers stay in the stomach for some time so person doesn’t feel hungry. End result is less eating and weight loss.
Ramadan can help you a lot in losing extra weight if you follow proper diet plans. Don’t eat everything which is available in your meal. Try to be moderate and maintain a good balance between proteins, carbs, fluids and fibers. Try to avoid sugary fluids; instead of them you can use plain water or fresh fruit juice. Don’t drink too much fluids at a time, do so in short intervals.
