New Delhi: With India already witnessing above-average temperatures in many parts, it is important to take a little extra effort to take care of your health. With the holy month of Ramadan going on, those who fast without food and water the entire day may get dehydrated and fall sick.
Hence, it is important to take care of your diet and eat cooling foods for Sehri which are not just filling and nutritious, but also help you protect from the heat wave.
According to health experts, foods that are high in protein, salt, and caffeine should be avoided, as they can lead to extreme dehydration. A few of those are:
During Ramadan, when you fast the entire day, having carbonated or caffeinated drinks would increase acidity as the body does not have enough time to digest it.Related News |
Also, coffee and most carbonated drinks are diuretics and would make you want to go to the toilet very often, causing dehydration, and making you long for water.
Also, fried foods have no nutrition and are just high in calories and saturated fats. So, cut off unhealthy samosas, bread rolls, bread pakodas, and even sweet and fried dishes like Gulab Jamun off the list.
According to doctors, high-sodium foods do not keep you full for a longer time, and make you thirsty and hungry, and craving junk food.
During summer, high-sodium foods also contribute to increasing blood pressure levels, which are detrimental to heart health.
These foods would make you feel hungry throughout the day and may cause indigestion as well.
