Avoid tea and coffee

Opt for hydrating alternatives like coconut water, nimbu pani, buttermilk, milkshakes, or water instead of tea or coffee to prevent dehydration.

Milk and dairy

Incorporate protein and calcium-rich dairy products such as curd, buttermilk, paneer, and ghee to meet your nutritional needs during fasting.

Fruit chat over potato fries

Choose a refreshing fruit chat over greasy potato fries to avoid feeling bloated and sluggish after your meal.

Healthy snacks

Opt for nutritious snacks like makhanas, boiled sweet potatoes, fruits, and dry fruits to curb hunger during odd hours, instead of fried chips.

Restrict sugar

Avoid refined sugar and use natural alternatives like cardamom, honey, dates and cinnamon in your kheer or halwas.

Don't go over board with root veggies

Exercise moderation when including potatoes and sweet potatoes in your meals. Overconsumption can lead to an excess intake of calories.
