Like The Buffessor, Fuad Kim posts fitness and diet related content to help his audience achieve their fitness goals healthily and effectively.
However, what sets Fuad apart from many fitness influencers is that he is a Muslim influencer who like many other Muslims, have to fast this Ramadan season.
