The underlying message behind Ramadan is self-discipline and self-control, however many people struggle with weight gain over this period.
It is important to stick to healthy eating principles during this time and to make sure that you are nourishing your body as best as possible.
Suhoor, the pre-dawn meal, should be a wholesome, moderate meal that is filling and provides enough energy for many hours.
Foods commonly eaten at Iftar include deep fried and high sugar foods. These should be replaced with healthier alternatives!
