If you are someone worried about your relationship with food and your body, and how that might affect your relationship with fasting, know that you’re not alone. While it can be hard to talk about, reach out to the people around you who make you feel safe, and begin a conversation about your approach to this holy month.
ANAD hopes that these resources can help you begin that conversation, come up with a plan to navigate Ramadan, and make you feel less alone. If you need support, ANAD’s services are free and available.
