It seems to me that to fast during Ramadan is an act of submission to a "god" that rejects God's plan of salvation and eternal life through Jesus Christ, and holds its followers in bondage and submission.
Better to be free of such bondage and imposed fasting requirements:
"Let no one therefore judge you in eating, or in drinking, or with respect to a feast day or a new moon or a Sabbath day, which are a shadow of the things to come; but the body is Christ's." (Colossians 2:16 & 17)
