BEIRUT: It is perhaps the biggest contradiction of the holy month: Many who fast during Ramadan end up gaining weight.Ramadan obliges Muslims to stop eating during daylight hours for 30 days. Next week, families will end the holy month with the Eid al-Fitr holiday, and most will spend the day visiting family and celebrating the end of an austere month with – what else? – a celebratory meal. Beginner yoga classes are best for anyone who wants a nonstrenuous workout, Pamoukian recommended.To get sluggish metabolisms up to speed, drink two liters of water per day, stretch in the morning and have an early, light breakfast to kick-start the morning, she advised. Throughout Ramadan, ProMax, an activity and eco-tourism group, has been promoting a new Dereja campaign.For those quite zealous to get back in shape, personal trainer Williams suggested following the Ramadan fast with, well, another fast.
