Exercising is one of the most important things that many people do, especially athletes, and during the month of Ramadan we provide important advice every day in order to take advantage of this month in a healthy sporting manner that benefits everyone.

During the month of fasting, the athlete needs to adjust his diet in order to ensure that he practices his activity in the best condition, and that his performance is not affected by negativity, and that his performance does not decline in the exercises or competitions and tournaments that he participates in. Among the most prominent of these nutritional tips is:

* Eat small meals in moderate quantities, and avoid large, fatty meals.

* Start breakfast by eating quickly absorbed sugary foods, such as dates.

* Wait a few minutes before eating the main meal, which should include sufficient amounts of starches, proteins, and vegetables.

* The suhoor meal should contain foods rich in fiber that give a feeling of fullness for long periods.

* Drink plenty of fluids in the period between iftar and suhoor, in order to compensate for fluid deficiency.

* Reduce drinking coffee, tea, and stimulants because of their negative role in wasting fluids and minerals.
