Fasting for Ramadan. Should I continue my current system of eating two big meals?

I m fasting for the month of Ramadan and I want to maintain my weight. We re allowed to eat before sunrise and after sunset, so we eat two big meals at 3 am and 8 pm. For the in between hours I eat nothing and drink nothing. I feel like the inconsistency is not a good thing, because my stomach stretches to accommodate the big meals, and then shrinks throughout the day, and stretches again at the next meal. However, if I eat smaller meals, I ll lose weight very quickly. (Although I usually gain it back quickly after the month is over.) I m usually 147-149 lbs but during this month I m maintaining 141-144 lbs. Should I continue my current system of eating two big meals, or make some changes?

Hi, Thanks for query.
Take less meal but frequently about 3-4 times during night.
Take plenty of water,lime water,fruit juices during night time so that during day time you do not feel dehydrated.
During day time avoid going in bright sun light.
Keep wrapping clothes on the head wet with water.
Getting weight loss during this month is common and you will gain afterwards.
