The right time to eat sweets in Ramadan
Experts on the Medicine website recommend that you should not eat sweets in the month of Ramadan immediately after breaking the fast, because this may cause a delay in the digestion process and the
occurrence of intestinal upset and disturbances in the blood sugar level, and a feeling of bloating, which increases hunger and prompts the fasting person to re-eat foods that contain sugar in a larger amount. .
Also, it is advised to stay away from eating sweets at the suhoor meal, because they cause an increase in the feeling of thirst and weight gain.
Therefore, medical recommendations speak of the necessity of dividing the breakfast meal in Ramadan into two halves, the first
being when the call to prayer of Maghrib is raised, and the last two hours after the time of breakfast, and it is better to eat two pieces of sweets as a maximum after 15 minutes of the second meal.
The recommendations add to the importance of avoiding Ramadan sweets that are full of fat, butter and sugar, with the possibility of
replacing oriental sweets with fruits and other light sweets to avoid increasing the proportion of butter and oils in oriental sweets.
