Don’t Be Lazy!

With fasting and a hectic routine during Ramazan it gets very tiring for one to take out time for exercise. Ditch your laziness and make sure you indulge in any physical activity of your choice. You can either take a brisk walk, hit the gym or do any online workout programmes or challenges. A few YouTube workouts by Chloe Ting or Leslie walk are your best bet for a quick workout at home.

Ditch The Fried Items!

It is extremely tempting and difficult to avoid fried items or any carbs especially right after breaking your fast. But these fried items can be a source of unnecessary calories and fat. Hence this Ramazan if you want to stay fit or get fit you have to ditch the pakoras and the samosas. However, there is no harm in having it once in a while to satisfy your craving. Moreover, you can also get an air fryer and enjoy your favourite food items with less calories. Or you can take baked items instead.

Don’t Skip Sehri!
