People suffer from few specific ailments especially after the month of Ramadan, which are stomach problems, general weakness, bloating, palpitation, insomnia and weight gain etc. I believe that the objective of a fast is to give you holistic health and give rest to those organs which are working 24 hours especially the digestive tract. Remember putting a single drop of water in mouth actives your whole digestive system. Unfortunately in our society this month has turned into a food festival month, and we eat huge amount of junk foods which are mainly composed of white flour products baked or fried in cooking oil. So instead of being cleansed, liver is overloaded with transfats, and other toxins. These dead junk foods pollute inner chemical environment, apply a block to mind, body, soul connection, and you will be deprived of fasting spiritual benefits.. If you are looking for some enlightenment or real peace, and physical health in Ramadan do follow the given plan. Before starting this plan you need to understand the SLP 8-Rules of Correct Eating and an SLP Adult Food Plan. For best results follow correct timings, food combination and food rotation. People who are already following SLP can fix their plan according to the Ramadan rules, and select the aftar foods from the Ramadan plan. Your prescribed Pre-breakfast and breakfast will become pre-sehri and sehri. If you have less time then don’t take pre-sehri and start with four table spoons of sweet or salty yogurt or lasi. If you are a weight watcher, eat very little aftari and directly have dinner. Many people replace dinner with aftar foods and fall sick after Ramadan. People having multiple doses of medicines are suppose to consult their doctors before fasting. If you are going to follow SLP Ramadan Plan for the first time do share your experiences after Eid and share this plan as much as you can with your family and friends for better healthcare in this holy month. Try to sleep at least 2-3 hours at night to get maximum benefits out of this plan.
Within one hour take breakfast, if cannot manage then take a second PBF, within this gap 1-2 glasses of water can also be taken.
Avoid white flour products and do not mix sweet and salty foods together.
Routine meal which means roti or fried rice with salan, yogurt and kachumar and then little green tea with shakar.
If awake for 3-4 hours after the dinner then can take warm milk with shakar, mix fruits, dessert or mix nuts before sleep.
You have to take about 12-18 glasses of water in summer and about 10-12 in winter, and avoid taking water with or after the meals.
