At the start of Ramadan, believers abstain from sustenance from dusk until dawn to heighten their spiritual and physical awareness. As the fast is broken in the evening, it’s about having a healthy relationship with, and savoring, the food you take part in and giving thanks to God. What the Ramadan fast isn’t is a reason to over eat which can be both physically and emotionally draining.
