Meal frequency and nutritional intake during Ramadan: a pilot study.


A study was carried out to compare the nutritional intake and meal pattern during and after Ramadan. It was found that in a sample group of 15 young Saudis there was a significant increase in caloric, fat, carbohydrate and protein intake. Although there was a significant reduction in meal frequency and the number of meals taken outside the family, a significant increase in body weight was noted during Ramadan.
