Zoyna Khatri is one of Grow Fit’s diet specialists who is also observing the Ramadan fast. These are her recommendations:
“Ramadan is a holy month for purifying your heart and soul. Through fasting, you attach your soul more to Allah. I have a few ideas to make your Ramadan healthy, so you can make your soul more attached to Allah through mindful eating. Binge eating leads to fatigue and low energy and hinders our ability to offer peaceful namaz and recite the Quran. Ramadan is a great opportunity to bring back a balanced and healthy lifestyle not only to purify your soul, but also to cleanse your system and adopt a healthy lifestyle.”
A Ramadan Regimen by Zoyna Khatri 0
As the holy holidays are upon us, many of us and our friends are preparing to fast for Ramadan, Paryushana, Mother Mary’s Feast and other occasions. Such experiences are not only healing for the soul but can also be good for the body. However, many come through these experiences actually gaining unwelcome kilos and damaging their health.
Dr. Vinay Bhardwaj of Grow says: “Intermittent fasting has recently been advocated in various health circles for not just losing weight but also prolonging life. We can take inspiration from these protocols to ensure that religious fasting also contributes to health.”
