Being tired whole day long, people tend to eat delicious food items without caring about their digestive system, which is why, they suffer from health problems. In order to keep you healthy and happy in this holy month, we bring to you some expert tips.
Never mix fruits with your meals. Consider breaking your fast with fruits or it is better consuming them after your meals. Fruits when combined with minerals, fats and proteins present in other foods, can affect the process of digestion.
Refrain from combining cheese with nuts and seafood with other meat. Your body is programmed to digest one concentrated form of protein at a time. Eating more than one form of protein at a time can create complications in your digestive system.
Avoid combining citrus foods with milk based foods. Acidic acid sours milk which can upset your stomach. Proteins and starch together is also not acceptable. If you are planning to stuff yourself on a feast full of lean meat, try balancing it out with some fresh veggies.
Do not be in a hurry to finish your Iftar food. If your body receives too much of food all of a sudden after being fasting the entire day, it may lead to indigestion and other gastric problems.
Start your Iftar or Ramzan dinner with some fruits, yogurt, lots of cooling fluids like sherbets or smoothies and then go on to relish your main course after a while. This will give your stomach some time to process and will ensure proper functioning.
To conclude, this Ramzan eat healthy combination of food items and stay fit for longer time.
