  • Karwa Chauth is a popular festival among many Hindu women
  • Karwa Chauth is also known as Karak Chaturti
  • Karwa Chauth falls on November 4th of this year

Many Hindu women across India are quick to watch their Karwa Chauth today. Karwa Chauth, also known as Karak Chaturthi, is the fourth day of the waning moon phase in the month of Kartik. The ancient Hindu festival is also viewed as a time of bond between women who get along on this special day, dress up, put henna on their hands, perform pujas, and finally break their fast when they see the moon. Fasting is observed for the long life and health of their spouses. Fasting for days is very exhausting for some, which is why pregnant women, sick and elderly women are advised not to observe the fast.

After a long fast, you may feel like doing whatever comes your way – but according to some experts, this may not be the best strategy. Your body may not respond very well to the abrupt change. We spoke to Ms. Jyoti (Head Dieter at Jaslok Hospital), who explained certain healthy ways to break your fast and foods to have after you eat neck.

Here’s What To Eat Post Karwa Chauth Vrat:

1. Drink water
It can’t be emphasized enough how much water your body needs, especially at this time, to avoid dehydration. So have a bottle ready. If you are bored with the simple taste of water, you can try detox water, juices, etc.

2. Dried fruits and nuts
Nuts and dried fruits are excellent sources of energy. They are also very filling and fill you with an array of minerals and antioxidants. Think: almonds, walnuts, cashews, plums, raisins.

5. Charge the proteins
It is recommended that you consume a significant amount of protein after fasting instead of consuming foods with simple carbohydrates or sugars. Proteins can help you maintain energy levels because they are not metabolized too early like simple carbohydrates.

6. Lime juice or coconut water
A glass of lime juice or coconut after fasting will help replenish the electrolytes in your body. It’s also great for immunity.

Breaking your fast by eating fruit can restore energy levels in no time. They’re full of natural sugar; therefore nobody complains. In addition, they are rich in vitamins and fiber that ensure fullness. Some seasonal fruits that we are in awe of are water chestnuts, guavas, apples, and strawberries.
