Have Some Mercy on Your Stomach this Eid!
Eid ul Azha is that time of the year when we get to eat Kaleji for breakfast, Mutton Biryani for Lunch, Steak, Chapli Kebabs and Nihari for Dinner. Yes! We all actually consume all this food in one day. This might sound a bit uncomfortable diet plan; but that’s what people love to enjoy on Eid. Eid ul Azha revives the spirit of Prophet Ibrahim (AS) Sunnah, as Muslims all over the world sacrifice their beloved animals in the name of Allah Almighty and distribute meat among poor and needy. The consumption of meat on Eid day is usually higher than usual days. People prefer to eat Qurbani meat as if they will never be able to eat it later.
Health Issues of Eid e Qurban
According to medical professionals, 100 grams of meat consumption in one day is healthy but anything beyond that can be harmful. Eating unbalanced diet on Eid ul Azha remains an issue for people as they rush to hospital on the second day complaining about the stomach ache, high cholesterol, irregular blood pressures, and lot more. Over eating is the major cause of all health related problems. There is no doubt about the fact that Qurbani meat is a blessing of Allah Almighty as it can help you to overcome protein deficiency and red blood cells. However, it fails to give you any benefit if you keep consuming it with spicy masala and cold drinks. Diabetics and heart patients should consult their doctors before deciding to consume meat. Over consumption of meat can cause calcium deficiency. Qurbani meat comprises of more calories than your regular frozen meat, and therefore it can cause indigestion, and heaviness.

The hunger strikes hard and you wait for lunch or dinner time eagerly to consume everything on the dining table. The Eid revives the spirit of foodies as they love to eat all the Desi delicious recipes without even thinking how much they can actually stock in.
