According to the collected data, in this period of time macronutrient consumption levels are not appropriate if compared with the reference recommendations. The number of daily ingestions drops to 2 or 3, with regard to the 4 or 5 ingestions of the rest of the population in this period. In addition, scientists have established that, because of the diet, corporal fat increases and muscular mass falls.

The article nutritional assessment of a Moroccan university population in Ramadan time has been published by Professors Mara Jess Oliveras Lpez, Eduardo Agudo Aponte, Pablo Nieto Guindo, Fernando Martnez Martnez, Herminia Lpez Garca de la Serrana and Mara del Carmen Lpez Martnez. This study was carried out in a thirty-student of the UGR, all aged between 19 and 27, where 36% of the population were women and 64% men, and it was compared with a control population group, made up by thirty university volunteers who did not follow the Ramadan.

Macronutrient deficit

The feeding of those who followed Ramadan suffered an increase of lipid ingestion, which involved 48% of total energy, against the recommended 30%, by decreasing proteins, which represented 9% of the total energy, against the recommended 15%, and a decrease of
