The holy month of Ramzan brings with it a great deal of devotion, strength, discipline, and patience. The devout fast the entire day, not eating or drinking anything from sunrise till sunset. Fasting during the hot summer days can be extremely challenging. “Considering the long fasting duration of this month we must keep in mind that avoiding dehydration is paramount, hence it is advised that during the eating hours of the day people should concentrate on hydrating themselves with adequate fluid intake, heavy protein intake, and having food items like veggies and fruits which are rich in fiber and vitamin as opposed to greasy and heavy food which can cause gut health issues during the fasting hours of the day,” says Aayushi Lakhapati, certified Nutritionist and co-founder at UpNourish, a health and wellness brand.
