It is coming to the end of Ramadan, when Muslims fast between dawn and sunset for a month.

The 18-hour spiritual fasts are not easy and for some the month can be a difficult challenge, especially for people with eating disorders.

Amina Clayton, who is 19 and lives in Birmingham, is recovering from an eating disorder after having symptoms of both anorexia and bulimia.

She was diagnosed at the age of 16 when she was "hardly eating anything and became very obsessed with exercise".

Now Ramadan can bring back painful memories.
