During fasting during Ramadan, it is very important to drink enough water.
Water makes up around 60–70% of the human body and transports oxygen and other nutrients to our cells. This aids in maintaining a healthy internal temperature, a crucial function in hot countries like the United Arab Emirates.
To prevent dehydration, you should drink plenty of fluids before sunrise and sunset, and cut down on sweating and other fluid losses during the day.
Outside of your fast, you should drink water often. Water is the best choice for hydration, beating out sodas and fruit juices. Drinking too much water at once might overwhelm your digestive system. You should stay away from caffeinated beverages like coffee, tea, and soft drinks since they will increase your bathroom breaks and lead to dehydration.
Twenty percent of your fluid requirements are met by the food you eat. During the cooking process, healthy grains like oats, whole wheat pasta, and brown rice take on water. Water is naturally present in high concentrations in many meals, including soups, melons, and celery. Hence, even if you drink the recommended quantity of water, you still run the danger of dehydration since you aren't obtaining water from these dietary sources when fasting.
During a fast, an unexpected relationship between carbs and water storage becomes a factor. Glycogen is a water-bound storage form of carbohydrates that your body uses for energy. Around three grammes of water are kept in storage with every gramme of glycogen. Some of the weight you lose when you limit carbohydrates is water weight, which explains why you see results so rapidly.
During the first several hours of a fast, your body will release water as glycogen is broken down. Nevertheless, as your fast progresses and your glycogen reserves are exhausted, you will need more drinking water since your body will no longer have this reserve of carbohydrates and water.
