    Hey guys... just wondering if any of you are training etc during ramadan. I was thinking of doing it but wanted advice in terms of when to train. Was thinking of going gym an hour before iftaar and then breaking fast with water and protein shake and then eating after. Or is it better to drink eat and then train?

    Want to lose weight

    My plan is probably to drink and eat a little bit then train and then feast for a while. Also try to get loads of water because in the summer months, it gets pretty hot and the lack of the water will be the hardest thing.

    Last year, I filled a gallon container of water and as soon as I finished fast I would eat a small meal and pray. Then eat a smaller dinner or nothing and go straight to gym and get done and come home and eat more.

    I normally have light weights session before Iftari. It's quite difficult after Iftari.

    best way to lose weight is eat half portion of what you usually consume. fill the remaining part of your hunger with water, it helps a lot.

    if you feel hungry still then eat some cashews or almonds.

    besides the month of Ramazan do this,

    eat Breakfast normal

    skip Lunch completely. Only drink water if hungry and if needed some nuts cashews almonds

    eat dinner but like I mentioned above half of what you normally consume.

    Note: no snacks whatsoever btw meals

    for Ramazan, eat a normal iftari then don't eat anything until Sehri. Eat half of what you normally eat in Sehri.

    I would eat Sehri, 3 hours before my sleeping time, eating food and then going straight to bed makes you gain weight even if you are eating less. Don't sleep for at least 3 hours after eating. That's why I recommend to eat it before 3 hours your normal sleeping time in Ramazan. I usually sleep after Fajr in Ramazan so I go about like 1-2 am in the morning

    for exercise, start slow. Start regular 3-5 km walks everyday. They help a lot.

    also I don't go by this less oil less rice shit. that doesn't work and you end up giving up normally. just eat what you eat normally but go by the rules I posted. hope this helps

    @Patriot that's a misconception.. U don't gain weight if you eat and sleep.. U don't gain or lose weight unless it has to do with calories. You don't eat before u go to bed because it causes Gerd.. Heart burn etc.

    Normally humans burn around 500 calories during sleep.

    If you go to sleep directly after eating then it's bad for your body and weight control.

    Broscience. People vastly underestimate the calories they are consuming.

    I haven't cut down on carbs like eating more green or having salad for at one time of the day. I've simply cut down the carbs I take on regular basis and that has done the trick for me.

    :oops:
    I guess everyone works differently!
    I've changed my diet a lot, no bread in the morning...Salad/vegetables with chicken etc, rather than chips/wedges/waffles.
    Can't remember the last time I actually had roti lol.

    Oh and also eating before 6:30/7 helps a lot!

    its about metabolism too, I don't think cutting out bread helps that much. One should always maintain a healthy diet and bread is very important for strength.
    If you want to cut something then cut sweet dishes.

    I've heard about this eating before 6:30 rule but never tried it

    The thing is you shouldn't lose weight that will haunt you after 10-15 years through pain and different diseases. A lot of aunts and cousins have reduced weight in 2-3 months by going through insane diet. In the end they do get their weight reduced but it comes with a price

    I feel ok for now and I've been doing this for around 2 months. It's not like I've completely cut out carbs tbh. I just have weetabix for breakfast instead lol

    Yep, sweet dishes have also been cut out. Except on special occasions like birthdays or something. Can't miss out on that :D

    I agree. I don't do an insane diet like that, it's hard to do that when you're studying too! I always need something to nibble on through revision so I just replace chocolates/biscuits with fruit.

    I wasn't really over weight or anything, I just put on some weight after marriage thanks to my husband wanting to eat out every other day. We've stopped doing that now as well lol

    I think small changes help overall tbh

    Not necessarily :p toned down like mad on my particular diet and it had carbs albeit low carb food, carbs are good for energy. If i went too long without it I was very weak and could not find myself to workout. Balance is good

    I have done the pull ups/chin ups etc with weight plates attached to waist and also used weight-training bands, but never seen these vests.

    Look interesting though!

    The vests are a bit pricey, are they even durable? Since you are getting a new one again.

    Why waste all that money on a vest...just use an old rucksack and stick weights in it...does the exact same job

    I dont see the point here tbh. Is there any evidence these improve the workout? or help gain muscle mass? I cant imagine doing burpees or lunges wearing one, but maybe its just matter of trying and see if help?

    Just a fad and an expensive one at that. @Mohsin idea seems more feasible.
