Health Desk - Aug 11, 2018: Eid-ul-Adha is a festival usually marked by extensive eating of meats. As a result, there is a risk of overeating which can lead to various health problems in short-term and often long term as well. Over-eating will not be beneficial for any individual. Thus, few precautions will help you maintain health on Eid.
Avoid Oily or Fried Meat:
If planning to eat meat on this Eid, try to take it in the boiled, charcoaled form and avoid taking it in oily/fried form as this increases the calories in a day. Experts suggest kebabs to avoid health risk during Eid.
Finish last meal 2 hours before sleeping:
Dieticians and doctors have suggested that one must finish off the last meal 2 hours before the sleeping time. After that, you can go for a long walk for almost 30 minutes to make sure that the food is digested within time and you can easily go to bed feeling light and healthy.
Take Green Tea or Lemon Juice after meal:
If you know pre-hand that you’ll be invited to places on Eid and thus cannot avoid meat, then allow yourself for better health tips to be included in the diet plan. Asking for a cup of lemon juice or green tea can help increase the metabolism rate. Tea can also be taken but without sugar.
Avoid use of any soft drinks:
Studies have shown us that the impact of cold drinks is very temporary. One should avoid the use of cold drinks in the days of Eid-ul-Azha due to a number of reasons. Health care tips discourage the use of any soft drink.
At least 6 hours break between the meals:
Studies have shown that the delay between two consecutive meals should not be less than 6 hours at least in Eid Days of Eid ul Azha.
