Subject: Fasting Month From 22nd August 2009.
Please wake up for breakfast – drink lots and lots of water for sahur. Eat low GI food such as wholemeal bread or brown rice too – this will release energy slowly and is the smarter way to eat.
For breaking fast – I know you’re hungry, but eat slow and drink lots of water. I’d suggest you eat a bit for 3 minutes, then do your Maghrib. Then return back to have your dinner proper. This strategy allows your brain to get the signals from your stomach that your body is getting food and energy, and this ensures that you won’t eat too much (as compared to a one time dinner sitting where our brains only get the signals much later after you take your first bite). Eat low GI food if you can. And do not eat anything after 10pm.
For the workouts, do attend all sessions – you are free to sit out and rest at any time – only do the exercises that you can do. Our goal for you is to *MOVE* as much as you can, even if it’s only at 60% intensity 🙂
If you feel unwell during workout, please rest at the side.
