Avoiding rice, bread and high fat foods is very effective but definitely difficult to avoid. Fruits and vegetables have proved to be one of the most effective foods in Sahur. Beans and lentils also provide long lasting source that helps to survive the day easily.

Avoid junk and fast food
Junk and fast food are temporary solutions and they are not even healthy. Eating fast food in Sahur especially can make one’s day tough. Apart from that even eating those in Aftari can cause many issues like heaviness after few hours, many of you might have experienced it.
