Wu Chun shares nutrition tips during the month of Ramadhan

THE holy month of Ramadhan can present a good opportunity for Muslims in Brunei Darussalam to further build on a healthy lifestyle by consuming less oily food, quitting smoking and increasing physical activities. “With the small window of time for eating your meals and the nightly Tarawikh prayers, this is the perfect start to re-calibrate one’s way of living.”

Encouraging words on the opportunity to change your lifestyle came from Wu Chun, the Managing Director of Fitness Zone in Brunei yesterday during the launch of the Sungkai Set Meal at his very own the Energy Kitchen.

He noted that many people fail to understand the real concept and the benefits of fasting. Some even equate fasting with feasting after, and in the end, they do not reap the health benefits that fasting brings, including lowering of blood sugar, cholesterol, systolic blood pressure and obesity.

A serious advocate of health and fitness, Wu Chun also pointed out, “It is important to plan your meals for Sahur and Iftar. As you will be fasting for more than 16 hours, you need a balanced meal consisting of vegetables, carbohydrates, fats and proteins for Sahur. For Sahur, fibre-rich food is recommended as these are slow to digest and will make you feel full during the day. They also keep us alert and are essential for our digestive health as they can help to reduce stomach acid. They also sustain blood sugar levels so we won’t experience an unhealthy spike and crash. Foods rich in fibre include bran, cereals, whole wheat, grains and seeds, potato with skin, vegetables such as green beans and almost all types of fruits (including apricot, prune and fig). Dates, an excellent source of sugar, fibre, carbohydrate, potassium and magnesium, provide much-needed energy,” he said.

At The Energy Kitchen, he said, “Some of our dishes have slow-digesting food which will prevent you from feeling hungry and lethargic during the day, especially at work. For Iftar, it is best to eat in moderation. Start with a small meal such as fruit and nuts before you go for Terawikh prayers and then eat another small meal after that. More importantly, do not skip Sahur because it can trigger a starvation response in your body and you will be likely to overeat during Iftar.”

The set meal includes selections of beverages, starters, mains and desserts.
