During the Holy Month of Ramadan, our diet should not differ very much from our normal diet and should be as simple possible. The diet should be such that we maintain our normal weight, neither losing nor gaining. However, if one is overweight, Ramadan is an ideal time to normalise one's weight. (But not 4 diet time-remember that)

In view of the long hours of fasting, we should consume slow digesting foods including fibre-containing foods rather than fast-digesting foods. Slow digesting foods last up to 8 hours, while fast-digesting foods last for only 3 to 4 hours.

Slow-digesting foods are foods that contain grains and seeds like barley, wheat, oats, millet, beans, unpolished rice and so on. (All from carbohydrates group)

Fast-during foods that contain sugar, white flour, etc.

Fibre-containing foods are bran-containing foods, whole wheat, grains and seeds, vegetables like green beans, peas, spinach, and other herbs that you all know, etc.

Lastly, the foods eaten should be well-balanced, containing foods from each food group. For example, fruits, vegetable, meat/chicken/fist, bread/cereals and dairy products. Fried foods are unhealthy and should be limited. They cause indigestion, heart-burn, and weight problems.
