Most people observe a ten-day fast on this auspicious occasion. However, one should not ignore your health even in fasting. People who have gas, indigestion should take extra care. Drinking without eating all day can lead to acidity, vomiting, indigestion. Fasting requires making a special diet plan (what to eat and not to eat during Ganesh Chaturthi). It must include healthy and nutritious things so that you can stay fit for a full 10 days.
Start breakfast with juice
You eat less during fasting (Ganesh Chaturthi vrat 2020 in Hindi), but the body should not be short of water. Keep drinking water for this. Have juice for breakfast to get energy. Drink orange juice. Eat fruits. Include papaya in it in particular. The energy of the body will remain. Have breakfast by eight o'clock. The quantity of fruits is high. Eat light at night. Eat paneer, savan rice. It is high in protein.
Kuttu Flour Is Healthy
Consume more items made of kuttu and singhade flour during the fast. Also eat sabudana kheer, khichdi. Kuttu flour pudding is rich in nutrients. It will give energy throughout the day. You can eat singhade flour roti-paratha. It also keeps weight under control. You don’t feel hungry for a long time.
What not to eat in fasting
Reduce the intake of fried items in vrat (Ganesh Chaturthi 2020). Eat less pudi, chips, dumplings, papada, fried peanuts, fried makhana, etc. Drink less tea and coffee too.
Eat something frequently
Many people starve for a long time in the fast. Pregnant women and people suffering from diabetes should stay away from it. This can lower sugar levels. Low blood sugar also lowers blood pressure. So, try to eat something or the other in a gap throughout the day.
Eat less rock salt
People who have kidney-related diseases should eat very little rock salt. Sendha salt contains potassium, which is harmful. Also, avoid consuming tulsi. Tulsi is believed to be not consumed and used in the worship of Lord Ganesha.
