For whatever reason, this person has to break their fast.

Should they eat less or differently? Does it change is it is voluntary or obligatory fasting?

    What do you mean by eat differently? – ozbek Jun 11 '16 at 3:06

    @ozbeck, anything that is different to their normal non-fasting eating patterns. So eating more or less, eating at different times, eating in seclusion. Anything. – Pureferret Jun 11 '16 at 8:41
  • I don't get what you mean by "eating differently". Why do you think they should? And what is the relevance for the "kind" of fast? Maybe i miss the point of your question :-\ Could you give an example or so? It seems to me that you are looking for an advise for such a case: I mean there's no general hint, as for example a diabetic may have an other time schedule than a person who has a temporary illness. IMO -in that situation- at least one should eat when he/she gets hungry or thirsty. – Medi1Saif Jun 13 '16 at 12:52

No he shouldn't , and it doesn't depend on obligatory or voluntary. But if it is during daytime of Ramadan , and if he can , he may not eat or drink in public.
