Suhooring LIKE A BOSS!

image

First of all, DO NOT SKIP SUHOOR! Get up 30 minutes before Al Fajr prayers and CONSUME / DRINK / INGEST YOUR SUHOOR! Hopefully you’ll be up to pray, so wake up a few minutes earlier to get in a light feast that’ll help ENERGIZE and HYDRATE your body throughout those 16 hours of awesome-good-deed-boosting fasting.

In addition, Ramadan this year in Kuwait WILL NOT BE FORGIVING. Our current weather feels like you’re walking in an oven!

Suhoor Options

Light and Soothing

  1. 250ml to 500ml of Skimmed Liban + 3-7 Dates
  2. 1-cup of fatfree Lentil Soup + 1 container of nonfat Yogurt + Veggies
  3. 1 container of nonfat Yogurt (or PickYO’s Ultimate Frozen Yogurt) + 1-2 servings of Fruit
  4. 250ml of low or nonfat Goat Milk + 1/2-cup of All-Bran Plus + 1 serving of Fruit
  5. 1 container of nonfat Yogurt + 1/2-cup Chickpeas (Nikhi) or Fava Beans (Bajila) + Veggies

HEAVY and Appetite Suppressing

  1. 1 pack of Fava Beans (with the peel) or Chickpeas (from the Nikhi & Bajila shop) + 1 container of nonfat Yogurt + Veggies
  2. 300 grams of Lean Red Meat + 1 container of nonfat Yogurt + Veggies
  3. 1 large bowl of low / non fat Yireesh or Harees, but make sure it’s packed with lean red meat

Unfortunately, this is the part where I have to leave for a few hours. I’m not done with Suhoor so stay tuned my fellow awesome readers!

Portion Illusion

You’ve chosen to eat 1 small thin crust Pizza from Pizza Hut or Domino’s.

A small thin crust has 4 slices. Those 4 slices fit right into your diet plan, and you’re losing weight wonderfully. However, a small thin crust serving isn’t filling your ravishing appetite.

What to Do?

Cut those 4 slices into 8 or more. This way you’ll feel more satisfied and satiated after meal completion.

Al Marai Mango Flavored Milk

image

“MANGO FLAVORED MILK!?” is probably the first thing that popped in your head. It’s the first thing that popped in mine a week ago when I discovered it at Qurtoba’s co-op.

I bought a 250ml serving to try out in my cheat meal. Unfortunately, I wish I bought more!

There isn’t actual Fruit in here, as you can see from the ingredients list:

Nature Identical Mango Flavors.” The Mango flavor isn’t that prominent, but it works. You can taste a lot of sugar, a lot of Milk and a hint of Mango.

Per 250ml, this stuff packs 180 calories, 5g of fat, 7g of protein and 25.5g of carbohydrates.

I went out and bought more of this stuff. Think of this as cheap tasting fun. Available, accessible and relaxing.

Err….yeah.

Exercising After Futoor

image

So you’re not a believer in fasted training, or don’t have the time and energy to train before Futoor.

Fortunately for you, that’s OK. You’ll still be reaping the 16 hour fasting benefits of enhanced hormone release and superior fatloss.

Here are a few scenarios depending on the route you take:

[1] At or Less than an hour after Futoor
EAT LIGHT! Or better yet, focus only on liquids to energize and hydrate, including (these are all options to choose from):
1) Water + Bowl of Soup
2) Water + Skimmed Liban & 3-7 Dates
3) Water + Whey Protein (you may add 3-7 Dates, but refrain if you want to maximize fatloss)
4) 5-10 grams of Branched Chained Amino Acids (BCAA’s)
*Feel free to add some plain Tea, Coffee or Pre-Workout booster to any of the options above for increased energy.

[2] After Taraweeh / 2-3 Hours After Futoor
1) Eat the Futoor I laid out in my previous post.
2) If you passed the 2.5-3 hour mark AND looking to gain muscle, eat your 2nd meal (laid out in the plan I posted), wait between 30-60 minutes then hit the gym.
3) If you’re full from Futoor, drink some plan tea or coffee ONLY. Eat after.

[3] After Meal 2 / Before Suhoor
1) This one’s pretty self explanatory. Wait between 30-180 minutes after Meal 2 depending on when you can squeeze in the time.

Stay tuned for my Suhoor post where we will focus on how to shut your appetite, keep you energized and hydrated for those 16 hours of fasting.
