Inspired by the diet of Muslims during Ramadan, a researcher at Hebrew University conducted a study to see the effect of the diet on body weight.

During Muslim fasting month of Ramadan they do not eat for a full day and then eat foods rich in carbohydrates in the evening.

Professor Zecharia Madar, researchers at the Israel Ministry of Education conducted a six months  study on 78 members of the police to perform a Ramadan diet, but with the amount of carbohydrate that is divided into three portions of food.

Madar’s research team then observed three hormones that causes of obesity which are leptin, ghrelin, and adiponectin. These three hormones affects hunger, regulate glucose and satiety affect on the body.

As a result, the body of people who go on a Ramadan diet responded positively to the pattern of carbohydrate consumption at night.

“This research could be an alternative to a more reasonable diet for those who find difficulty to maintain dietary habits over time,” explains Professor Madar, as reported by the NY Daily News.

Eating carbohydrates at night not only helps you lose weight but also can improve health.
