Fasting for a whole month can be challenging

Fasting for a whole month can be challenging. With some planning and
forethought, you can minimize discomfort and be successful. Here are some tips
to keep in mind.
1) Consume the right foods at Suhoor (pre-dawn meal) to last through the
fasting hours
Choose balanced Suhoor dishes with sufficient protein, healthy fats, and fiber to
be satiated.
• Go for complex carbohydrates such as multigrain and wholemeal breads and cereals,
lentils, oats, semolina, wholemeal flour and beans, chickpeas, fruits and vegetables as
they will provide you with a long-lasting source of energy throughout the day.
• Protein and healthy fats help make you feel satiated. They digest slowly, making you
feel full for longer and also helps stabilize blood sugar levels. Examples include
chicken, fish, red meat, lentils, eggs, milk, yogurt, cheese, nuts, plant-based oils and
