Ramadan fasting month is not only used to collect rewards as much as possible by undergoing worship. This special moment is also often used by many people to lose weight.
In the proper way, losing weight can be realized without causing health problems and most importantly, in losing weight during fasting is to pay attention to 3J, the number, type, and schedule of the diet.
The amount, if you want to lose weight should be less than the need,” said Dr. dr Samuel Oetoro, MS, SpGK. Simply reduce the portion of a quarter of the usual portion of food.
Also, avoid skipping meals, even once. While during fasting, Dr. Samuel suggests changing meal schedules, for example, lunch is converted into eating iftar and meal.
When fasting, the meal schedule is changed only, if it is usually breakfast, lunch and dinner, then when the fasting lunch is split 50% to eat and 50% meal to eat when breaking.
Do not forget also to pay attention to the type of food. Avoid fried foods because oil and fry may increase the risk of blockage of blood vessels. As an alternative, we recommend the consumption of vegetables and fruits.
