Simple tricks to avoid weight gain during Ramadan

Avoid satiety to the point of satiety

It is important to stop eating and take a rest when the person feels full. If you continue eating after reaching this stage, you will gradually approach the feeling of satiety, which is associated with

 difficulty breathing, lethargy, heaviness, bloating, frustration and regret. It will also cause the wall of your stomach to stretch and enlarge.

From this point of view, experts at the Medicine website advise dividing breakfast into two small meals instead of one large meal, as this helps in reducing the stomach during the month of Ramadan.

I eat more vegetables

The benefits of vegetables in the month of Ramadan are many and important, because they provide the body with many vitamins and

 minerals that it needs, and they are few in calories, easy to digest, and help to feel full.

It is essential that vegetables make up half of the food you consume in each Ramadan meal

Experts on the Medicine website advise that vegetables make up half of the food you consume in each Ramadan meal. It is recommended

 to diversify in salads and soups that contain vegetables, and it is recommended to serve them cooked or grilled of various kinds.


The body needs a large amount of fluids in the month of Ramadan, so it is better to avoid juices, sweetened soft drinks and energy drinks

 because they contain a high level of calories and do not contribute to weight loss in Ramadan.

Refrain from eating frying pans

Even small amounts of fried foods provide the body with relatively large amounts of calories.

Therefore, experts on the Medicine website advise avoiding fried foods and fried vegetables because they are rich in calories, in addition to causing digestive disorders.

More physical effort

The only scientifically proven way to increase your calorie burn is through physical exertion. Therefore, the best time to do physical activity in Ramadan is after breakfast.

 It is recommended to exercise at least 150 minutes per week of physical activity, such as walking to Tarawih prayers, which can be divided into half an hour every day, five days a week.

Eat sweets wisely

Choose a small amount to taste sweet, so that it is eaten slowly and enjoyably after feeling satisfied at the end of the meal, and not as a substitute for a meal to satisfy hunger.

It is important to choose healthy types of sweets such as chocolate 70% cocoa, grilled katayef stuffed with walnuts or cheese 5% fat, apple puree, low-fat ice cream or homemade sweets that contain a small amount of fat.

Do not overdo the consumption of dates

Compared to other types of fruits, dates contain the highest concentration of sugar and calories, as each berry provides 50 calories.

It is recommended not to exceed 3 servings of fruits per day during Ramadan, including dates.

Replace peeled grains with whole grains

Whole grains, such as bulgur, whole wheat, freekeh, barley and brown rice, contain dietary fiber that helps you feel full.

As for hulled grains, such as white flour and white rice, they are devoid of dietary fibres, and therefore a person has to consume more of them in order to feel full.

Don't eat in front of the TV

Eating at home in front of the TV while watching Ramadan series is great and fun! But you should refrain from TV completely while eating.
