Ramadan means to restrain oneself. The essence of Ramadan is is not only fasting. It is to restrain from any evil doing. I'm a Buddhist. In Buddhism also there is fasting and carries the same meaning.Yes your Christian aunt told you the truth.

Yaa Christian do fasting and do prohibiting too, but the fasting would be different from Muslim, we may drink, but we are allowed only to eat enough food once a day, prohibiting the things we are very like, examples smoking, drinking, or eating salt, meat, etc, it is for one whole day, on the bible we are be taught to do fasting too, to remind ourselves about God, and to restrain temptation
