  [Q]: What is the ruling on the healthy individual who intentionally eats or drinks during the day in Ramaḍān?

It is not permissible for a healthy individual to eat or drink intentionally during the day in Ramaḍān. From one angle, he must abstain from food and drink for the remainder of the day. From the other angle, he must make up for it.
