Post Ramadan. The best ways to get back into rhythm after fasting

As Ramadan concludes, it’s the perfect moment for our bodies to recalibrate and replenish. This article delves into post-Ramadan nutrition, highlighting the power of minor adjustments in fostering long-term well-being.

Imaan Mookadam, a Clinical dietitian working at Raslouw Private Hospital in Centurion and a Master in Therapeutic Nutrition with a special interest in post-surgery & critical care, shares straightforward yet impactful methods for sustaining a healthy diet and lifestyle beyond the fasting month.

Mookadam said fasting during Ramadan entails a major shift from our normal eating patterns; we indulge a lot post iftaar and Taraweeh, following a week of celebration after Eid.

During Ramadan, we adopt a unique eating pattern, fasting from sunrise to sunset. This nocturnal eating pattern, distinct from our usual routine, can have significant effects on our body.

“During this time, our bodies go through an intermittent liver glycogen depletion,” Mookadam said.

Mookadam further pointed out that changing our sleeping patterns during Ramadhan affects our circadian rhythms and hormones.

As Mookadam explains, The change in our eating and sleeping patterns during Ramadan leads to a metabolic shift in our bodies. This shift, combined with the week of celebration after Eid, can leave us feeling fatigued.

Mookadam emphasized that as colder months and winter approaches, our immune system may experience a decline in strength.

Incorporating regular physical activity into your routine enhances your mood and energy levels and helps awaken your senses. Mookadam advises that physical activity boosts oxygen and blood flow throughout the body, effectively combating fatigue.
