I'm fasting for the month of Ramadan and I want to maintain my weight. We're allowed to eat before sunrise and after sunset, so we eat two big meals at 3 am and 8 pm. For the in between hours I eat nothing and drink nothing. I feel like the inconsistency is not a good thing, because my stomach stretches to accommodate the big meals, and then shrinks throughout the day, and stretches again at the next meal. However, if I eat smaller meals, I'll lose weight very quickly. (Although I usually gain it back quickly after the month is over.) I'm usually 147-149 lbs but during this month I'm maintaining 141-144 lbs. Should I continue my current system of eating two big meals, or make some changes?
I have friends at the same time a classmate who do fasting because of Ramadan, at first I thought the fasting is for grown ups only, I didn't thought that children and teenagers do fasting also, that's what I learned from my classmate. I guess what they are eating during the time they are allowed to eat is very healthy because they could last long for a month.
