How To Lose Weight in Ramadan

How To Lose Weight in Ramadan

During the fasting season, a lot of us have got Ramadan weight loss on our minds.

With all the fasting and abstinence, it’s natural that many look to see how they can better their bodies and get healthier during this period.

Unfortunately - and this comes as a surprise to many - a lot of people actually end up gaining weight rather than losing weight during Ramadan

A lot of factors contribute to this weight gain:

  • Overeating when breaking the fast during Iftar
  • Excessively indulging in sweet treats & fried foods
  • Irregular sleeping patterns which can cause the metabolism to slow down

So how do you combat this?

Here are our top tips for Ramadan weight loss.

  • While you may not have enough energy to go for your regular workouts, try to do some light activity after Iftar - even a short, brisk walk will do!
  • Have dinner an hour after breaking the fast. Leaving dinner for too late can cause indigestion and discomfort, causing disruption in the way food is processed, thereby leading to weight gain.
  • Don’t forget to keep track of your calorie intake. Though you may be fasting, it’s still important to monitor the calories you consume after breaking your fast in order to avoid any excessive weight gain. You can do this by using apps like MyFitnessPal or Loseit..
  • If hungry between iftar and suhoor, snack on nuts, seeds and fresh fruit rather than opting for chips or biscuits. Nuts and seeds pack a powerful punch of nutrients and vitamins which help stabilize blood sugar levels and due to their high fiber content, keep you fuller for longer. Don't forget, they are still high in fat, so moderation is key here.
  • Pick foods that give you energy and keep you full throughout the day. At Suhoor, start your fast by having good carbs that help maintain blood sugar level, ease digestion, and are full of fibre - such as wholemeal bread with jam/peanut butter.

We all know that Ramadan can be a difficult time to abstain from unhealthy foods. However, balancing your food intake can help you achieve some weight loss during this period.

If you do gain weight, you can always shed off the excessive Ramadan weight gain by opting for our slimming packages that will help you get right back on track.

Dear Slimspa, You are one of the best spa but there will always be one more room for improvement. Your room lights, more machines so we can enjoy more time to have our treatments. We like all your staff, they are really good. Keep it up! God bless!

Slimspa Team, Thank you for your special treatment. Your spa is very welcoming and professional. I had satisfying results and will come back for sure.

To Slimspa Having a great healthy figure is a compromise and full time job. An awesome diet and gym is the key but for a faster result I tried manual massages and endermologies, the results were amazing, long lasting and meet all my expectations. Cellulite is not about exercise as much as intake of water & estimulation through massages and that's what I got from these treatments & great increase in collagen in my skin. I truly recommend LPG products and treatments,I am happy client.

I had got a very impressive result from my anti cellulite treatments and really like to thank my therapist Soumiys for being so professional , precise and patience . The spa itself is very clean , the staff were friendly and my treatment always starts & ends on time .

Amazing spa and reasonably priced for LPG! I had good results and the therapist Ciby is so knowledgeable and professional. Definitely coming back!

Had a great experience with Hanna. She matched my colour perfectly and I find her cut the easiest to manage and style.

It was a pleasant experience. The staff was friendly, made me feel welcome and explained everything / procedures for my treatment to me. I will definitely go there again for future treatments. Thank you so much. I have already experienced some of the desired results - just two weeks after my first treatment! So I already booked my next treatment and am very excited about possible future results.

I had a wonderful experience with the spa, the combination of treatments was very helpful on my goal to get a better figure. The personal was professional, I believe they have always keep the expectations to reality and would recommend to anyone who wants to achieve results.

The Hydrafacial was totally excellent. The great ambience coupled with the helpful and kind behaviour of the staff, the treatment was not only useful for my skin but also had been a very pleasant experience

Currently undergoing Venus Legacy sessions (with Somaya) and manual anti cellulite massage (Warda) and they do wonders! After four sessions I see the results. Everyone is super accommodating and professional.

Really impressed with this place. They offer all types of solutions for slimming and body contouring. Had cellulite treatment here and was more than satisfied with the results. The staff are very professional and very friendly and they will give you the best advice and solutions.

Efficient, friendly, personalized attention and warm service. Very comfortable going ahead with their treatments owing to their experienced staff.
