5 Ways To Stay Healthy During Ramadan


One of the most important months of the Islamic calendar is almost upon us. And it is observed by billions across the globe. Seen as a blessed month, it teaches many things, including resistance and discipline. And it is a prime opportunity for people who want to fix their diets and ensure that they get back on the right path.


Many people plan to eat better, maybe lose some weight, and fix their lifestyle. But very few, if any, are actually able to achieve it. And that is simply because many of those people aren’t sure about how to plan a better diet and schedule.


GrubUP is a food delivery service that you can use to order from the best halal restaurants in Sydney or Melbourne. And we have outlined a few things that you can do to ensure that you not only eat better but also continue it throughout the month and further, too.

1.     Plan It Out

Everything begins with a plan. So, before Ramadan starts, outline your goals. Think about what you want to achieve and why you want to achieve it. Think about the less healthy parts of your current diet.


Whether that’s over-snacking, unhealthy foods, too much coffee, or any other part that is non-conducive to a good diet.


Create a good diet plan that not only covers your fast time but also provides nutrition-rich calories.

2.   Stay Hydrated

Hydration is one of the biggest challenges that any Muslim will face during their fast. And in a country like Australia, that can be even more difficult. So, you need to drink around two or more litres every day. The best way to do that is to space it out from the moment you break your fast to the moment you make your fast again.


Avoid juices with processed sugar, snacks with a lot of salt, and carbonated drinks because they dehydrate your body a lot more than you might think.

3.   Eat Fuller Meals

Your calorie consumption should stay the same, but the consumption of the food you eat should change. One block of cheese has as many calories as a whole plate of sliced apples, just to give you an idea. Make sure that the calories you are consuming are saturated with good carbs, proteins, fats and other vital elements that are needed. Focus more on incorporating salads into your diet.


You need to make sure that you don’t feel hungry throughout the day, and the best way to do that is by eating foods that will provide enough nutrition to last you through the day, instead of just a few hours.

4.   Try Out New Things

It is quite easy to get tired of eating the same food every day. It can get boring quickly. And that is one of the main reasons why people don't like fixing their diets. There seems to be a misconception about eating healthy. People think it means eating the same couple of dishes every day. That isn't true. You can certainly experiment with different dishes, as long as you are conscious of the calorie count and nutrition.


And, if you want to experiment but aren’t too interested in cooking yourself, you can instead consider a food delivery service like GrubUP, which delivers throughout the Melbourne and Sydney areas with no limitation to delivery distance.

5.   Eat But Carefully

Know your limit. Many people have the tendency to overeat or undereat, depending on their mindset. So, it is important to know how much you can eat. And your body itself is the best indicator of that. When it starts to get too full, you will lose the desire to eat. When you haven’t eaten enough, then you will know that you can eat more.


To Sum Up

Ramadan is a great time for people to fix their lifestyle in many ways. Spiritually, physically, and diet-wise too. And by following these guidelines, you can ensure that you maintain a diet that can get you through the month as seamlessly and healthily as possible.
