If you are a veteran faster, you know what to expect breaking your fast. If you are not, there are a few things that you need to know. The more restrictive your fast or the smaller the amount of food you have been taking in, the more difficult returning to your normal diet will be - which brings me to another point. This is the perfect time to make some dietary changes. If you do not make that decision now, you will have a harder time after breaking the fast.
For example, if you want to reduce fried or processed food, sugar or simple carbohydrates, and son on, this is the time to make a conscious decision to have a healthier diet going forward. Having done this for many years, I can tell you that if you do not have a plan, within a few weeds or less, you will be back to your normal diet and weight. Think and pray about what you want to do. Then, make a plan and take it one day at a time getting the support you need to change your diet for the better. You might even want to see a dietitian or find a book on the topic.
So, back to the topic at hand...
Don’t break your fast with fried foods, lots of sugar or salt cured meats, etc. You get the picture. Your body will react poorly to having to process these foods after having such a restrictive diet for the last 21 days. Therefore, it is best you break your fast with small meals consisting of very small amounts of fat, sugar, salt and other rich ingredients for the next week or so. This will give your body a chance to assimilate to a normal diet.
If you have been on soup or broth, you should be even more careful about how much and what kinds of food to eat during the first days and even weeks after you break the fast.
