Dear MEL Topic Readers,
Eid al-Fitr: A healthy way to break the fast
Ramadan is the Islamic holy month of fasting. During the period, Muslims abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and engaging in sexual activity from dawn to sunset to surrender to the creator. It also makes them aware of the pains of hunger and thirst, so that they become more appreciative of what they have.
After the month-long fast, Muslims celebrate the end of the holly event called Eid al-Fitr, which was held on 15th and 16th of June this year. They give a specific prey and give money to the poor and the needy before the feast. You can imagine what and how much more food than usual they eat during these break-fast days. But after a month of restrictive eating and drinking period, their stomach and digestive systems aren’t in normal shape. Careful and moderate eating is essential to not to surprise the body. Also, it may be good time to rethink and reorganize what to eat and how much every day.
Enjoy reading about this break-fast festivity and think what restrictive diet could do to your spirit and diet.
