The holy month of Ramadan is here, and it brings with it an excellent opportunity to make significant lifestyle changes.

During the fasting month, your metabolism slows down. So iftar, the meal eaten after sunset, is not meant to make up for the hours you have spent without food.

Instead, it should be equivalent to the size of your typical lunch. If you are planning to lose weight this Ramadan or want to avoid gaining weight, follow these guidelines for a healthy iftar.
