As the month of Ramadan commences, observant Muslims need to be particularly mindful of their nutritional and exercise requirements, experts say.While fasting may seem contrary to gaining weight, some people have a harder time managing their weight during Ramadan, according to Abbas Hammoud, a fitness manager at the 180 Degrees gym. Hammoud said the best time to weightlift is either an hour before iftar or an hour afterward, noting that 180 degrees will be keeping its doors open until midnight during Ramadan.Those tempted to indulge should keep the spirit of Ramadan in mind, Bassila Zaarour said."They gain the weight right back after Eid al-Fitr," Bassila Zaarour said. Moreover, their body composition will likely be for the worse, as the weight lost during Ramadan is mainly muscle, while the weight gained afterward is mostly fat. Bassila Zaarour insisted it is possible to maintain the same weight and body composition during the month of fasting.
