Over these nine days, people observe fast, some fast for whole nine days and while others do it for two days.  We know that fasting is a way to show tribute to Goddess Druga, but it is also a great way to detox and reboot your body system as well, so here are some ways to fast in a healthy way in Navratri:

As you will be restricted on taking various solid foods, so it is important that you stay hydrated. We advise you to take refreshing drinks like coconut water, buttermilk, lemonwater or just water. Avoid drinking a lot of tea and coffee as it may leave you dehydrated.

  • Skip sugar

In Navratri, people eat rock salt instead of pure salt, so it will be great to avoid refined sugar as well. Though you can take sugar in fasting but try to skip consuming refined sugar. You can go for honey instead.
