Fasting is about self-control and self-denial. It’s as much a spiritual and psychological challenge as well as being a physical challenge. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with some extra insight into the world of nutrition to make sure that you are well prepared for each day spent fasting from sunup till sundown. Yesterday we covered some of the more basic aspects, and today we’ll take a closer look at some detailed tips, especially for sahur or the pre-dawn meal. Read on, ladies...

1. A glass of milk (or two... why not?) can help fight off fatigue during the day.

2. Watch your sugar intake during sahur, as after the initial sugar rush, you’ll be left tired and fatigued during the day.




3. Eat plenty of fiber so you’ll feel fuller longer.

4. The magnesium contained in bananas can help maintain your energy levels during the day.

5. The ideal staple for a pre-dawn meal would be complex carbohydrates such as brown rice and whole grain bread.

6. Before a day of fasting, resist the urge to eat more than your usual portions, as this can really upset your stomach.

7. And one final note: if your stomach does get upset, a bit of lavender can help calm it down. Naturally, this is usually more useful when you’re breaking the fast.




So, there we have it: some simple, easy to follow tips for a healthier fasting month. Hopefully, these will prove useful for the coming days, and maybe next year as well... ;)
