Drinking water all day is not possible during Ramazan because people are fasting. In this heat fasting becomes a bit difficult as many people feel dehydrated and weak due to the heat. To avoid this follow these tips to stay hydrated this whole Ramazan.
1. Eat hydrating foods
Foods such as watermelon, cucumbers, tomatoes, strawberries etc will help you stay hydrated. Eating them at Iftar will replenish your body and is another way of increasing your water intake.
2. Avoid salt
Too much salt in your meals can cause dehydration.
3. Take it easy on tea
Caffeine also leaves you dehydrated so try cutting down on the tea/coffee.
4. Avoid spicy food
Spicy foods can make you extremely thirsty and make your body heat up making you lose your body’s water intake. So take it easy on the Tabasco sauce.
5. Avoid juices
juices may taste good and be your go to drink but they don’t hydrate you as much as water would and they also lead to weight gain.
6. Carry a bottle of water after Iftar
After Iftar you should keep drinking water up till Sehri. Carrying a bottle of water with you will remind you to do that.
7. Don’t chug
Chugging down four glasses of water at Iftar or Sehri won’t hydrate you but will make you feel sick and bloated.
8. Stay indoors
Unless you absoloutely have to don’t go out side. You’ll sweat and lower your water levels.
9. Take cold showers
Cold showers will keep you cool during hot days.
10. Wear light clothes
Wearing dark clothes will make you feel hotter as they absorb heat, choosing cotton and other natural fabrics in lighter shades will keep you cooler.
