How often do you fast in a year? If this question brings out the growling sound from your tummy and makes you feel hungry, then trying intermittent fasting (IF) may not be your cup of coffee.
But if your New Year’s pledge to lose weight is not letting you back out, then let’s spill some beans for you about this wondrous diet.
Intermittent fasting was one of the most popular diets of 2019. In fact, celebs all around the world are adopting it–and experts are praising it for its weight loss benefits. All in all, this diet seems too good to be true. But that doesn’t mean that intermittent fasting is suited for everyone. In fact, experts also believe that it doesn’t work the same way with everyone–even if it is the diet of the decade.
So, is it going to work for you? Well, it depends. If you have hypoglycemia, where your body constantly needs glucose, then this diet is obviously not the right choice for you. Similarly, if your willpower is not your strong suit then you might end up binging during fasting intervals and do gain weight instead of losing it.
Still, considering intermittent fasting for weight loss? No problem! Just take this quick quiz before you dive in.
