5 Habits That Ruin Your Weight Loss Program When Fasting

29 March 2023 19:18 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Fasting can be a way to lose weight, especially during the holy month of Ramadan. However, abstention from eating and drinking does not necessarily help your diet program. In fact, gaining weight may occur when fasting due to these five habits as summarized from the Times of India, as follows:

1. Not maintaining calorie intake

Even though you have fasted all day, you need to pay attention to the number of calories consumed when breaking the fast. Excessive calorie intake can hamper the diet. Ideally, eating 1,200 calories a day has been proven to help people lose weight. 

2. Consuming too much sweet food

Sugar has high calories. Instead of indulging in sweets and fried foods, choose meals that are nutritionally balanced. Foods rich in fiber such as vegetables, fruits, and complex carbohydrates can make you full longer.

3. Eat in a hurry

Do not rush to swallow the food when breaking the fast. Eating too fast often leads to overeating because your brain does not have enough time to receive signals of fullness. 

4. Eat large portions

Avoid eating all foods at once when breaking your fast to save yourself from consuming more calories than usual. Also, make sure you have balanced meals with the right proportions of fat, carbohydrates, protein, and vegetables.

5. Sleep after suhoor

Do not go straight to bed or lie down on the couch after having a pre-dawn meal (suhoor) or breaking your Ramadan fast. Take light exercise as part of your healthy diet program so as to burn calories and avert fat accumulation in the abdominal area. Moving a bit after breaking your fast can also help digest food and prevent bloating.
