Hey there! okay, so my mom is islamic and wants to join the ramadan month, a fasting month where you're allowed to eat before sunrise and after sundown - means, not during the day. While I always thought this must be the worst thing you can do to your body, while on a paleo diet I learned that this can be a sort of intermittent fasting and quite healthy. So far, so good. But what about the water? I can't get her to drink anything during the day and the last years, the temperatures have risen in central europe where we live, so this july will be pretty hot. I even suggested I'd fast with her if she only drank some water during the day. But - no. I think she doesn't want to take an advise from someone whose diaper's she has changed, especially regarding her beliefs. Is going without water the whole day as bad as I believe? What do you think?

Remind her though that all the "rules" are there to let her focus on religion (insert any religion here) and her god. The rules are not there to make her sick, ill or injured (and thus making herself sick or ill or injure herself would be going against her god's will.)
