We all know that Ramadan is a very important time of the year. While Ramadan is an important act of worship that can help us become more compassionate towards those in need, it can also help us to reach our personal goals.
Make the most of Ramadan by using it to help keep you healthy and thriving. Read on to discover how!
Ramadan and intermittent fasting
Whether for religious reasons or purely for health benefits, fasting is something that many people choose to do. This is when you do not eat for an assigned period of time, only to break your fast during a set period of the day.
The upsides of fasting
Intermittent fasting for any reason is proven to have some incredible benefits for both your short and long term health. It can, of course, help you to lose weight, and makes you more conscious of what you eat overall. Fasting for eighteen hours at once can even help to reduce the risks of certain diseases, and improve your cholesterol.
The downside of fasting
Of course, fasting improperly can cause ill effects. If you do not nourish your body suitably while breaking fast, you may feel lethargic and struggle with digestive issues. It is also possible that, should you binge at the end of your fast, any weight loss benefits will be lost. You may even gain weight!
Making it work for you
There is no need to turn away from fasting, though! You can make intermittent fasting work for you by planning ahead so that you can feel great and maintain the weight loss results you achieve. It is all about making sure you are breaking your fast with the right kinds of food, both during and after Ramadan has passed.
