TBV President Timur Erk, researched, “Fasting for healthy individuals is resting the body.” He explained that the subject was considered as the removal of psychological hunger in some people with the arrival of the holiday and that excessive consumption emerged.
Noting that the most enjoyable part of the holidays is crowded tables and family visits, Erk said:
“We should pay more attention than ever to uncontrolled nutrition and excessive horse consumption during Eid al-Fitr, which coincides with a period when we are closed to our homes and inactivated in order to see healthier days. In our culture and our rich cuisine, there is always an alternative for the taste buds. Easy-to-apply methods such as adding aroma to water with flavors should always be at the forefront.
Erk pointed to the effects of balanced and determined consumption of salt and sugar on general body health and kidneys, and said:
“A feast to be spent at home with limited movement will undoubtedly bring along uncontrolled nutrition. In such cases, your choice should always be portion control and light nutrition. Let’s not forget that a significant part of the diseases encountered are caused by nutritional errors.”
TBV Dietician Gökçen Efe Aydın stated that the body, which is accustomed to being fed regularly in a limited period of time during Ramadan, should not force the body during the holiday and offered the following recommendations:
“Consuming high-calorie foods that contain excessive sugar and salt during the eid may cause fluctuations in our blood sugar and blood pressure problems. To prevent this, a healthy diet is the most important condition for a healthy body.”
