Fasting during Ramadan can be difficult for diabetics, especially when deciding what foods to eat at Sahor and Iftar. To effectively manage your diabetes during Ramadan, choose healthy and nutritious foods that will keep you full and energized throughout the day.
- Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins are recommended foods for Sahur because they are high in fiber and low in sugar. These foods can aid blood sugar regulation and provide sustained energy for the day ahead.
- It is critical to avoid overeating during Iftar and instead choose a balanced meal that includes carbohydrates, proteins, and healthy fats. This can help prevent a sudden spike in blood sugar levels and keep you feeling full for longer.

The Ramadhan Nutrition Plate Method, which divides your plate into three sections for complex carbohydrates, lean proteins, vegetables and fruits, is a helpful tool for guiding your food choices during Ramadan.
