Or ever thought if the specific diet you are following is compatible with Ramadan fasting? 

Ramadan is an annual practice, a time of spiritual reflection, improvement and increased devotion and worship. In this holy month, Muslims fast (refrain from consuming food, drinking liquids, and smoking) from dawn to sunset for 29-30 days. Ramadan Fasting is obligatory upon every sane, healthy Muslim who reached puberty and is not traveling during the time of fasting.

“Fasting is the greatest remedy — the physician within.”
