Yeah, no matter what, energy needs activity to dissipate and lose weight at least noticeably.
I believe overeating is psychological and a habit. Sometimes when I eat little and something interrupts my appetite long enough, I don't feel hungry anymore. Some other times I eat until my stomach is about to explode, but I still crave more and keep pushing it like crazy. Appetite and control are serious bro.

That's typically after the ~30 days of fasting. There is a holiday after it and people lose control so they show crazy (wrong actually) habits. It's wrong by all means, but people are people.
Some do have it in the fasting days' nights (I and my family don't especially), but it seems to be in similar amount with normal days. The only difference is that main meals in this month become two, one to break fasting at sunset and the other later at night, as close as possible to early morning hours. That's one less main meal
