How you can hydrate your body after a long day of fast

When the much-awaited moment comes, the moon is out and you break your fast, do not reach for very oily or spicy food. Have light foods that have a lot of carbs and proteins. This will help you in regaining the lost energy.
Before you sleep, have at least 3-4 glasses of water or lemonade. This will help replenish the electrolytes and keep your body hydrated.

If you have any health issues, do not skip your medicine. Have your medicine after having the sargi.
If any time of the day, you feel extremely dehydrated, have some juice or milk.

Have warm water

Have at least 2 glasses of warm water. Stay away from oily and fried food like pakoras and chips. These foods are heavy and can make you feel dizzy. Have multigrain rotis with some paneer and green vegetables instead.

Say no to chai

Avoid having tea, as the beverage can make you feel dehydrated. Have buttermilk or juice instead. You can also have amla juice or green tea. The antioxidants in these will keep you fresh throughout the day.

Have fruits

Include some fruits like apples, bananas, pomegranates, and berries. Fruits are rich in fiber and keep you saturated for longer.

​Include dry fruits

Have some dry fruits – nuts, dates, figs and walnuts. These help in storing the energy and will help you keep going through the day as they are rich in essential fats and proteins.

​Say no to sweets

It is suggested not to have sugary food items when you have your sargi. Having sweets can give you hunger pangs later. Instead of having something that is rich in protein, like paneer.
