During this period, the golden recommendation to reduce thirst is to distribute water consumption between iftar and sahur. Many of us leave the water on the table and consume a lot of fluids at once. The extra water we take does not remain in the body, it is excreted with urine in a short time. It is best to complete 2-2.5 liters of water per day after iftar, consuming 1 cup every half hour.

Coke, soda and instant juices, which are drunk so that it refreshes me and quenchs my thirst, cause you to become more hungry and thirsty with its sweetener and sugar content. It also reduces nutrient absorption, inviting vitamin and mineral losses. Instead of acidic drinks, you can consume homemade sugar-free lemonade, cacik with plenty of mint and grated cucumber, buttermilk, kefir or homemade sugar-free iced teas.
The sweetness of plums, chernishes and apricots made without the addition of sugar will be good for constipation, which is one of the biggest problems of Ramadan, and will quench thirst. You can consume your well-diled compotes in iftar and sahur meals.
Vitamin and mineral losses are observed a lot during Ramadan, when there is prolonged hunger. Soda is very valuable during this period as it replaces the minerals lost by the body. In addition, it supports the stomach after iftar and helps the digestive system. Between iftar and sahur, you can consume up to 1-2 bottles of soda at any time and enrich your soda with mint, lemon or orange slices to refresh.
I know you can't wait to have tea and coffee with great longing. However, studies show that tea and coffee are diuretic, that is, they increase the excretion of water from the body. You can set your own personal limit and drink a large glass of water after each tea and coffee.
All the extra food we eat so I don't go hungry makes us thirsty more during the day. Because when nutrients are digested in our body, they need water. At this point, it is worth avoiding fries, pastries, salty foods, processed meats and fatty parts of meats.
Herbal teas such as fennel, chamomile, melissa, island tea, mint lemon; dairy products such as milk, low salt buttermilk, kefir; soups and homemade cold teas are water-supporting liquids. You can consume soup in iftar, brew herbal tea for yourself in the future, make a snack with kefir and 1 serving of fruit after 2 hours, and consume milk on the sahur.
