Losing weight has two facets. First is to have a healthy, well balanced, low carbohydrate diet and secondly a well programmed work out. Ramadan is a Festival of Muslims during which mostly all Muslims fast over a period of a month and allowed to eat only once a day. This is the biggest opportunity for obese people and for health conscious people to lose weight.

Losing weight during Ramadan is not difficult as only one meal is allowed in a day. So, the calorie intake is already lessened. It would be an added advantage in losing weight if the person trying to lose weight drinks a lot of plain water during the fasting period. Avoiding of coloured and sugary drinks would be a plus factor for the weight losers, which is made difficult by the tantalizing stalls selling sugary drinks during Ramadan.

When the fast is broken one should not give in to the cravings of the sweet tooth, but try to consume a well-balanced meal with less of carbohydrate and more of proteins and health food. This is difficult because during Ramadan inciting sweets are prepared in every household and also available in the market. Hunger and thirst of the whole day makes one consume anything that comes handy and opts for the fried and sugary food. Once this fatty food is avoided, losing weight during Ramadan becomes easy.

Consuming a lot of water helps the faster from dehydration. If a well-planned programme of physical exercise is followed with this month-long fasting, losing weight during Ramadan can be a very successful venture. So, regular exercise carried out individually would go a long way in helping in the weight loss. Some fasters do not drink water or any kind of liquid during the whole fasting period. These fasters should be advised not to exercise to prevent dehydration. Physical training during Ramadan can be a boon to the weight-losers.
