This is a frequently asked question by all women, How we can maintain or lose weight during Ramazan?. Most of us are taking fried food in Sahri or Iftar in result of gaining few more kilos. In this post I will share my most favorite diet trainer MOOMAL ASIF’s Ramazan Diet Plan to help you out in maintaining your weight. First let me tell you how we can bring back a balance and healthy lifestyle. Actually its all about managing your eating habits, self control and discipline during Ramadan. Give a break to your stomach and expel toxins from your body 🙂  Fasting teaches us to practice spiritually and not to eat excessively.
SUHOOR/ SAHRI should be wholesome, that is filling and provides enough energy for many hours. Include meals which are slow digesting in sehri.
IFTAR is the meal which breaks the fast. We break our fast with Dates and water, following the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Tradition or Sunnah. Dates provide you nutritionally burst, you will see that dates are very unique in their nutrient content. Dates contain very high levels of potassium (much more than a banana), a key re-hydration mineral and a special carbohydrate blend that enhances hydration above and beyond water alone.
You can add fruit juices in your meal. Here are Moomal Asif’s Ramzan Diet plan for 30 days. Hope it will help you out in maintaining your diet.

Keep us in your prayers.

I found it very easy because all ingredients were at home, so I mixed all up and applied on my face. Believe me the final result after washing face was superb. You can use dried rose petals too, as I have dried rose petals and stored in a jar.
