Junk food and processed foods are delicious however; they contain no nutrients and should just be eaten as sidelines not the main course. These products contain MSG (monosodium-glutamate) and fats that can cause the body lose energy and make us more dehydrated. Eating healthy foods will result in the body getting more energy and staying full, junk food and processed foods don’t stay in the body and dissolve quickly which gives us the feeling of an empty stomach however, the fats remain in the body making you feel lethargic and tired.
Eat suhoor! But don’t make the mistake of eating just anything, like leftover pizza and samosas from iftar. Aim for foods rich in fiber and those that provide you with a good source of energy. You may want to try preparing suhoor before going to bed so that not much effort is required in the morning. Preparing in advance also comes in handy for those days you oversleep.

Follow the sunnah. “The Prophet ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) used to break his fast with fresh dates before he prayed. If he did not find fresh dates then he would use dried dates. If he did not find that also he drank a few sips of water”. [Ahmad and Abu Dawood]. Dates are extremely effective in raising blood sugars quickly because they’re easily and quickly absorbed. This is a much healthier alternative than turning to fatty foods to normalize blood sugar.

Eat fruits. When you eat fruits on an empty stomach it does a much better job at detoxifying your system and supplying you with tons of energy, than if you were to eat it after your meal. Its a win-win situation because you get the health benefits of the fruits and you’re well fuelled for the night of ibaadah ahead.
Fruits, Vegetables and other natural produce are the best foods for Sehri and Iftari to be refueled with energy.
Foods like rice, potatoes, milk and vegetables keeps your energy level high and is always good for sehri. A love for dates during the month of Ramadan is always helpful as it may keep the energy level high for whole day.
Well in this heat, the need to be stay hydrated with the ideal number of glasses in Sehri is close to 8 to 10 which will provide the water needed by the body throughout the day till Iftari. Hydration is important in Ramadan; there are several ways to keep your body hydrated such as avoiding tea and coffee, drinking fruit juices and vegetable soups.

At Iftari to avoid the heat and cool off, dates can be consumed as well as smoothies and coconut water that is both nutritious and healthy.
The prophet (s.a.w.) provided the believers guidance related to eating and drinking in Ramadan and when fasting.
Prophet Muhammad ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) said:

“When one of you eats, he should mention Allah’s name; if he forgets to mentionAllah’s name at the beginning, he should say: ‘Bismillahi awwalahu wa aakhirahu’ (In the name of Allah at the beginning and at the end of it)’” [Sunan Abi Dawud].

He ṣallallāhu 'alayhi wa sallam (peace and blessings of Allāh be upon him) also said:

“Allah is pleased with His slave who eats a meal and praises Him for it; and takes a drink and praises Him for it” [Muslim]
Avoid extravagance/wastage of all forms, related to food, decorations, eating-utensils, etc. "And eat and drink but waste not by extravagance, certainly He (Allah) likes not Al Musrifoon (those who waste by extravagance)." Prophet Muhammad said: "Do not drink from vessels of gold and silver, or eat from plates thereof."
