How to prepare your body for fasting

May 03 2021

Some of us believe that we will be ready when Ramadan begins, but preparation will make the transition much easier. The following are few ways to prepare your body for the fasting month.

Consumption of food: Begin by eating in moderation. Ramadan is approaching, so don’t splurge on food. This will only increase your hunger and make fasting more difficult.

Early breakfast: During Ramadan, we rise early to prepare for Suhoor, the pre-dawn meal before the fast begins. It is critical not to skip this step. Start eating an early breakfast right away to help your body adjust to the earlier hours, especially if you aren’t a big breakfast eater.

Avoid snacking: Get in the habit of eating three main meals per day – breakfast, lunch, and dinner – and avoid snacking in between. You’ll have to get used to eating two main meals a day during Ramadan: Suhoor and Iftar. This way, you’ll only have to skip one meal.

Reduce coffee consumption: If you enjoy coffee and do not want to suffer from a pounding headache during the first few days of Ramadan, begin reducing your caffeine consumption now. Switch to decaf one coffee at a time until you’re only drinking decaffeinated coffee, then stop drinking it entirely.

Regulate your sleep: If you normally sleep late and wake up late, start regulating your sleep now because you will be waking up early for Suhoor during Ramadan. As a result, you may be sleeping earlier. Alternatively, take a nap in the afternoon and sleep later. Begin imitating whatever sleeping habit you prefer right now.

Stock up: Meal planning before Ramadan can save you a lot of time and trouble, especially during the first week of Ramadan when you are adjusting. Prepare your menu for Iftar and Suhoor for the first seven days, make a list of the ingredients you’ll need, and go grocery shopping now while you’re still energized.

If you are concerned about your ability to fast for any reason, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or reflux, make an appointment with your doctor right away. Talk to us to see if fasting is safe for you and how you can prepare yourself.
