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)
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.
