Weight gain during fasting was explained by a Saudi health expert

Riyadh: Saudi health expert Dr. Khalid Al Nimar explained the cause of certain people’s weight increase, even while they are fasting.

  1. Not working out enough (those who exercise regularly should continue to exercise at least moderately during Ramadan).
  2. Decreasing water intake can lead to rapid weight gain.
  3. Sleeping less than six hours a day. (During Ramadan many people in the Gulf tend to stay awake at night and not get enough sleep during the day).
  4. Excess fat and sugar in the body through fasting foods.
  5. Dr. Khalid also says that, Kabsa, meat, and sweets for dinner, cause some people to gain weight quickly while fasting.
