Ramadan is a real opportunity to lose weight. All you need is to eat sensibly during iftar. Avoid feasting and you are sure to lose weight.

Try drinking honey and cinnamon during iftar and suhoor and you will lose significant amount of weight, guaranteed.

Kira

Hi . Im Kira and Im 173 cm tall and weight 67 kg can i lose 5 to 10 kg this month exercising 40 minutes a day in orbitrek before suhoor ? Im also addicted on sweet food (chocolates , sweets , cakes , cookies etc ) how can i avoid this addiction ?

July 02, 2014

Hi Kira,

When you exercise before Suhoor, it's best to eat something light for Suhoor that you think you can hold on till break fast. It is also nothing wrong for exercising during fasting but be sure to do some light exercising instead so to avoid having thirst. Brisk walking is one of them.

Sweets are very addictive, I must say. You can have them, but limit it. Per day, have at least 2 sweets. One before Suhoor, and One after break fasting. If you have the urge of eating more sweets, distract yourself with other stuff. Eventually the thought of having to crave for more sweets will be gone.

Stay Healthy on Ramadhan!

30 mins intense power walk
15 mins squats, sun salutation yogas and core exercises.
Another 1 litre of water
2 boiled eggs, toast, salad and soy sauce
Coffee with habbatus sauda
3-4 dates

Ifthar:
500 ml Hot tea and fat block pill(optional)
Water filled fruits (watermelon, guava etc)
Something protein(chicken, eggs etc)
Some carbohydrate(guilty pleasure allowed only if you will be doing full terawih prayers afterwards)
Maghrib and then kill time for isya and terawih.
Throughout the night, drink another 1.5litres of water.

Samira

Hi adrian, I didn't know how else to comment, kinda slow, LOL.

I had a question, and that is...MUST I eat 1200-2000 calories every night? I just can't do it. I just had 2 dates, some water and half a fish and I already feel like I'm about to keel over.

June 29, 2014

Adrian Bryant

if you're trying to lose weight then less is better (although it may not be as healthy and sustainable) but no... you dont have to eat 1200+ calories but at least 1200 cals is needed by most people to not get overly hungry

June 30, 2014

Ikram

Hi Adrian,
I'm planning on losing weight this Ramadan inshallah, the hardest part for me is eating right can you please give me an example of what foods I should eat. Like when I break my fast what should I eat should I eat a salad ?

June 17, 2014

Adrian Bryant

doesnt matter what you eat. see this

June 18, 2014

Jaime

Actually, it DOES matter what you eat.

You're not going to fast for 16+ hours and then eat a donut or a cheeseburger. That's going to completely disrupt any chance of stabilization possibly through healthy foods. Calories are not the only thing that matters.

June 24, 2014

Adrian Bryant

calories don't matter for weight loss. see this but calories or WHAT you eat does matter for your health

lina

Hey Adrian ,
Ramdan is really close . Am addicted to the gym and i cant do my weight training after Iftar .. Do you think I can left weights after Iftar ?! in order to maintain muscles and to do cardio after Iftar to lose fat or extra calories ? Thank you :)

June 07, 2014

lina

Sorry I mean left weights before Iftar *

June 07, 2014

Adrian Bryant

you'll maintain your muscles over 30 days if you workout (and dont become lazy) + eat a regular amount of protein

no need to panic or fear a dramatic loss of muscle and in the worst case (which I doubt will happen) is you'll lose a tiny bit of muscle which can easily be gained afterwards

June 08, 2014

lina

Thank you so much :)

Hi thanks for the article!
I have a question thats confusing me. Because i have started working i dont fast on my workdays and i fast in my holidays which is one day at a week. For a couple of months I'm really careful with what I eat, I also exercise and I'm losing weight. Does my unregular routine of fasting make me gain weight?
I'll be really happy if you answer!

July 24, 2013

Adrian Bryant

of course not! have you read this here
