How Should We Maintain a Healthy Diet During Ramadan?

In the name of Allah the Merciful Sustainer of worlds!

How Should We Maintain a Healthy Diet During Ramadan?

It's a program of Press TV about maintaining healthy diet during the month of Ramadan:

Please remember in duas!


  1. Very good, what should be common sense, but is needed. Thanks.

  2. Assalamu `alaykum wa rahmatullah
    I cannot hear audio. However, I do have a few thoughts.

    1) Vegetables. Lots of them. The fresher, the better. Read lables, or look up nutrition information; and select those which have the highest nutrition density. Note that food from the legume family actually fits into the meat category.

    2) Fruits. Lots of them. The fresher... Don't forget dates, figs, prunes, and raisins. They are packed with minerals.

    3) Whole grains. I am blessed to live near a store that sells bags of wheat, barley, and oat grains. I can easily cook these in water and dump them into my soups along with all of those vegetables that I love so much. If I am ever blessed to get a hand grinding mill, I will be able to grind them up into a meal, along with some nuts, and make bread from my own hand-milled flour. And don't forget other seeds, like nuts.

    4) Fish. We are such a meat-eating society. Hardly any of us needs to be reminded to enjoy our burgers. But do not forget the fish. It is naturally lean, what oil it has is packed with Omega 3s, and it has all kinds of nutrients that cows - especially these grain-fed soy-filled bitties that we torture endlessly here in the States, just don't have.
