Here are the key points she highlighted:

  • Coffee: Sakina advises against consuming coffee during Sehri, citing caffeine’s diuretic effects that can lead to dehydration. Additionally, sugary coffee may cause blood sugar spikes and crashes, resulting in fatigue and hunger.
  • Oily Foods: Foods like parathas, nihari, fried samosas, and leftover biryani, rich in oils, can lead to bloating, acidity, and excessive thirst throughout the day.
  • Salty Foods: Instant noodles, processed cheese, and sausages, high in salt, can contribute to throat dryness and extreme thirst during the fasting period.

Sakina recommends avoiding anything high in sugar and salt.

The dietician encourages a balanced and nutritious Sehri to provide sustained energy throughout the day. It’s also important to consult with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian if you have any specific dietary concerns or health conditions.
