5 Foods That Will Keep You Hydrated in Ramadan

The importance of maintaining a hydrated body cannot be overstated. Water makes up two-thirds of our body weight and is responsible for core functions such as digestion, blood flow as well as overall cell health. In the month of Ramadan, our bodies get subjected to long time periods without water or any water-containing foods. Not only what you drink but also what you eat in the allocated time plays a significant role in maintaining the hydration of your body. Here are five foods that will help you stay hydrated in this Holy month.


CucumbersWith an alarming 96.7% water content, cucumbers can easily be added to your Ramadan meals. Slice them up to add in your salad, eat with hummus as a dip in Iftar or blend them up with non-fat yogurt and mint for a healthy drink for Sehri. Cucumbers are also a great source of Vitamin C and K.


GrapefruitThis citrus king is made up of 90.5% water. Not only does it help you stay hydrated, but it also lowers cholesterol levels and helps in taking off those extra inches brought on by all those Samosas and Pakoras. Have a glass of grapefruit juice in Sehri with a pinch of pepper to add that extra kick!


YoghurtAll those superstitions you hear about one glass of Lassi in Sehri keeping you hydrated are in fact, quite true. Plain yogurt has around 85% water as well as high amounts of protein and calcium. This super food can be eaten with food, delicious summer fruits such as peaches and cherries or made into a smoothie.


WatermelonAs its name implies, this mighty melon is packed with water. It also has the perfect combination of salts like sodium and magnesium that keep you hydrated longer than a glass of water. In case you’re running out of time for Sehri, always keep a bowl of watermelon in your fridge!
