Tips for Proper and Balanced Nutrition in Eid-al-Adha

Private Egepol Hospital Specialist Dietician Cansu Kahraman said that attention should be paid not to consume excessive meat and sweets during Eid al-Adha. Expressing that excessive consumption of meat and sweets during the Eid al-Adha may pave the way for serious weight gain and serious ailments, Kahraman gave tips on proper nutrition during the feast.

Dietician Cansu Kahraman, who stated that the day should be started with a light breakfast on the morning of the feast, said, “It is very important to start with a light breakfast during the Eid week and especially on the first day of the feast. Because when you start with a light breakfast, it will be easier to digest meat consumption during the day. Slaughtered meat should also be consumed after resting for a day, if possible. The reason for this is that when the meat is first cut, it is hard and more difficult to digest. Meat that will not be consumed immediately can be stored at -18 degrees for 3 months.


Emphasizing that the way the sacrificed meat is cooked is also important, Kahraman said, “Sliced ​​meat can be used as boiled, grilled or roasted for lunch or dinner. If the meat is to be consumed in the form of kebab, it is necessary not to keep the meat too close to the fire or barbecue. While consuming it in the form of kebab, it is necessary not to use too much tail fat in meat. Because they raise cholesterol levels. While it is being boiled, after freezing the fatty broth a little, take the layer of fat that accumulates on it and choose to consume the meat part at the bottom. While roasting, meat should not be roasted with internal fat. It is sufficient to fry the meat with its own oil. In other words, there is no need to add extra lard or olive oil.”

Consume 150 grams of meat per meal

Special Egepol Hospital Specialist Dietitian Cansu Kahraman, who recommends consuming a maximum of 100-150 gr (about 3-4 meatballs) meat per meal during the feast, said, “Cholesterol levels can rise seriously during the Eid al-Adha. Therefore, we do not recommend consuming more than 100-150 grams of meat during this period. So, for example, if red meat is consumed at lunch, you should eat vegetables and salads for dinner. When consuming meat, too much ayran should not be consumed with it. Because consumption of meat and yogurt and ayran can also cause edema, and consumption of too much buttermilk can prevent iron absorption. Instead, water should be preferred. Along with meat, plenty of salad should be consumed and seasonal greens should be preferred. This positively affects both iron absorption and vitamin C supplementation.

Emphasizing that it is also important not to overdo the consumption of syrup, especially during the holiday, Kahraman continued: “You should stay away from sugary foods during your holiday visits. More milky desserts should be preferred rather than syrupy desserts. When visiting or hosting guests, mostly dried fruits such as dates and nuts, walnuts/almonds and healthy desserts that will not increase blood sugar rapidly should be preferred.
