What Is Intermittent Fasting And How It Can Save Your Life?
Intermittent fasting or IF is taking the world by storm. But what is it? And can you do it?
Suppose someone did not eat anything for 24 hours, we say he is fasting. Health conscious men and women fast to give their digestive system a much needed break. Or they fast for medical reasons. Fasting is hard, intermittent fasting is not.
During Intermittent fasting one can eat for 8 hours a day and then they don’t eat for 16 hours. For example one can eat between 8 am to 4 pm and then do not eat anything till next day 8 am. Not that hard right? Here are some more interesting info about IF.
