Your Working Out in Ramadan Guide

Published

on

A question that has been circulating social media for the past few days

What is the perfect time to work out in Ramadan? Should you work out in Ramadan at all?

Working out in Ramadan gets way harder due to long fasting hours. The lack of food and water make us feel like we aren’t capable of doing the minimal movement, never mind exercising.

well, the truth is, fasting should not be an excuse to miss your gym classes or gain extra few pounds; on the contrary, Ramadan is a chance to lose few pounds and get ins shape

Before Iftar:

  • Training before Iftar is recommended for weight loss
  • Drink as much water as you can from Iftar to Sohour
  • The best time to work out is the last hour before Iftar
  • When you exercise before Iftar leads to losing weight as your body tends to burn more saturated fats

After Iftar:

  • If your goal is to build muscles, then training after Iftar is the best for you
  • Train after Iftar with a couple of hours, so your Iftar would have the time to be digested
  • Make sure you have a healthy Iftar meal

 

Tips:

  • Don’t work out in an open space during fasting hours, that might lead you to feel unwell
  • Whenever you decide to exercise, make sure you stay dehydrated from Iftar to Sohour
  • If you want to go for a run, the best time is around dawn (from 2 to 5 a.m)
  • Make sure to include protein and carbohydrate

In an attempt to protect the environment, the country of Denmark has devised a new way with which it can inform the public with impact of consumed goods. Thereby allowing shoppers to be informed prior to making a purchase.

The idea is that food products will have stickers on them that show their environmental impact. This came as a proposal by the government and will establish the project by this week. “We want to give consumers the means to assess in supermarkets the environmental impact of products,” said the Minister for the Environment in Denmark.

This sure is a great idea. It allows for the general public to be informed and conscious about the surrounding environment.

Published

Prince Fahd Bin Sultan just inaugurated Saudi Arabia’s first pharmacy of it’s kind; a smart one, at King Fahd Specialist hospital in Tabuk. The pharmacy that is operated by a robot can dispense 1,500 packages of medicine and deal with 240 prescriptions per hour. 

The smart pharmacy can also store over 20,000 packages of medicine and reject expired drugs. A highly efficient way to save time and ensure control over what goes out to patients.

This new initiative can help reduce medication and error and supply the highest safety measures, which benefits the whole community.

The Smart pharmacy, so far has six outlets with one that is specialized in serving people with special needs.

In his speech, prince Fahd also thanked King Salman and Crown prince Mohamad Bin Salman on always being so keen on bettering and supporting the health car area in Saudi Arabia.

How long do you think it’ll be until we get a smart pharmacy in Egypt, as well?

These are the 7 Essentials you Should Never Go Without this Summer

Published

on

Summer is finally here and I’ll be damned if I say I’m not excited to leave Cairo, tan, wakeup by the sea and just enjoy the hell out of the season! But in order to have the best summer experience, I never walk around without my backpack/Tote bag packed with my summer necessities and by necessities, I mean gadgets that your friends, skin and body will crown you as the summer Queen/King for. So, let’s ace this summer, shall we?

1. Sunscreen

I cannot stress this point enough! It doesn’t matter if you’re dark skinned, or if you believe that you never get sunburned; sunscreen shouldn’t be a choice during summertime, it should be a rule. Sunscreen helps limit excessive UV (ultraviolet rays) exposure, which helps reduce the risk of getting skin cancer. This is how serious the issue is.

2. SPF lip balm

People forget to protect their lips, but skin cancer in this area can be particularly dangerous, which is why everyone should use lip balm with SPF. Do not underestimate the damaging power of UV rays.

3. Water Bottle

We all love our malibus and mojitos but it’s important to stay hydrated. Normal plastic bottles are so outdated and can easily get mixed up with someone else’s water bottle. So, instead buy yourself a cool looking water bottle that’ll always remind you to hydrate.

4. Coconut Oil

Why coconut oil? Coconut oil can be used on your hair to keep it moisturized and shiny, on your skin to keep it hydrated and glowing, on your face as a non-greasy moisturizer, around your eyes as a wrinkle remover, as natural makeup remover, as a homemade tooth paste when mixed with baking soda, as lip balm and as natural deodorant. Yes, child, coconut oil is indeed miraculous.

5. Mini Speakers

So that when the main speakers’ battery’s dead, your heroic ass saves the day by pulling your mini speakers out of your bag, plug it in and continue chillin’ without anything killing your vibe. Just remember to always keep it charged.

6. Deodorant

Summer= sweat, and who wants stinky armpits in the summer? no one! Who wants the cute stranger to walk away in the middle of the conversation to avoid passing out because of how you smell? NO ONE.

7. Shades

Maybe you don’t like shades, maybe you don’t think you look nice in them but sunglasses are so damn important in the summer! They keep you from squinting, which save you from getting wrinkles. Plus, they protect your eyes from harmful sun rays. Just make sure to buy shades that block UV rays and you’re good to go, champ!
