Tips to revamp your eating habits after Eid

Updated: Jan 25

Congratulate yourself.

You’ve worked hard this Ramadan. Allow yourself to enjoy a hearty breakfast with family and friends – even if it’s on video call! Forgive yourself for any unhealthy choices you made; what matters is that you pick yourself up and remember that you’re seeking a balanced lifestyle and not a race. 

Baby steps.

Change one thing at a time, don’t feel pressured to have a brand new lifestyle overnight. Try to adopt one new habit at a time.

Don’t skip meals.

Even if you decide to incorporate intermittent fasting to your regular routine, try to eat 3 meals a day with the right nutrients. For a more personalized meal plan, and a body analysis, call our nutritionist to help you decide on your caloric intake.

Probiotics.

Probiotic filled food will help take care of your gut health, make you feel less bloated and lighter. Foods like buttermilk, yogurt, pickles and any other fermented foods like miso or Kimchi.

Get a blood test.

Get a blood test. We recommend testing for vitamin D, B12, B9, and iron so you can better cope with any irritability, difficulty concentrating or to simply improve your overall immunity.  You can get a blood test, from the comfort of your couch, today, by setting an appointment for our nurse to visit you.
