Ramadan is not a term for counting calories but you should count protein. Aim for at least 2g per Kg of bodyweight. Protein is the building block of your muscles so make it a priority, always eat the protein portion of your meal first then tackle the carbs and fats.
Use supplements to your advantage – with reference to meeting your protein requirements whey protein powder can be an extremely useful tool. BCAA or branch chain amino acids are a great supplement for protecting the muscle and providing hydration. Check our supp store here
