Before ramadan I had very good self control. I would not crave for much snacks and unhealthy food and I was restricting which is how I managed to lose quite a lot of weight. After iftar I literally can not stop eating. Before Ramadan, I could go days without eating and wouldn’t care. I stopped counting calories, I don’t restrict and I don’t feel a lot of guilt anymore ( which is kind of good because that means I kind of bounced of my disordered eating). How do I listen to my body and stop eating when I’m already full?

Drink water. The fact that you’re not eating for LONG periods of time will mean you’ll only overeat especially when you’re not hungry. Drink 500ml before your meal another 500ml during and it will suppress the hunger and make you feel physically full.

Happy ramadan and good luck for the rest of the days
