7 fatal mistakes that lead to weight gain in Ramadan

1- Eat to the point of satiety

If you continue to eat after you are full, you will gradually approach the feeling of satiety, which is associated with difficulty breathing, lethargy, heaviness, bloating, frustration and regret.

This is when you exceed the amount of food that the stomach can comfortably accommodate, you cause the wall of your stomach to expand and enlarge, and thus increase the need to eat larger

 meals, and to consume larger amounts of calories in order to reach the degree of satiety. Therefore, it is best to avoid eating all at once and divide your breakfast into two small meals.

2- Eat fast

It is preferable for the fasting person during iftar hours to eat the food slowly and well, in order to facilitate the process of digestion, in addition to enabling the person to feel full and avoid the occurrence of satiety.

 Take the time to chew Ramadan meals and foods slowly and enjoy every bite because this will help you feel full quickly and prevent you from rushing to consume food in a random manner.

3- Eating in front of the TV

It is true that it is difficult not to watch your favorite Ramadan series, but eating and sitting for a long time in front of the TV will enhance

 your desire to eat more foods and large quantities of food and lose you the feeling of satiety and thus the accumulation of fat in the body.

4- Lack of movement and exercise

Lack of movement and inactivity are among the most prominent elements that negatively affect your health during Ramadan and lead to weight gain. 

Fight the lack of movement in Ramadan by resorting to light exercise that does not require a great effort to avoid feeling thirsty and not being able to drink, or for example, rely on going to the market daily

 to buy your needs and in this way you force yourself to do some effort, and do not forget to walk from time to time Outdoors to keep active in Ramadan.

5- Eat a lot of sweets

Ramadan sweets such as kunafa, Qatayef and other delicious sweets contribute to an excessive increase in weight because they are rich in calories. 

The correct way to eat sweets to avoid weight gain in Ramadan is to choose a small amount to taste, so that it is eaten slowly and enjoying after feeling the comfortable satiety at the end of the meal, and not as a substitute for a meal to fill the hunger.

6- Excessive consumption of dates

Dates contain the highest concentration of sugar and calories, as each piece provides 50 calories. Therefore, it is advised not to exceed 3 servings of fruits per day during Ramadan, including dates.

7- Sleep and rest after breakfast

One of the most common effects of sleep after breaking the fast in Ramadan is the feeling of lethargy, laziness and loss of energy, which affects the general human health, because inactivity causes many diseases.

The harms of sleeping after breaking the fast in Ramadan do not only include physical problems, but also affect the shape of the human body, as weight increases and the abdomen and rumen appear.
