Practicing a healthier lifestyle is always a better way of living. Nowadays, the more people look for ways to achieve a more fit body, the more diet plans pop up. Which is good, considering you always have more options to choose from. People like shortcuts; the easier, the quicker the better! Which is why fasting for weight loss is growing more popular by the day. Intermittent Fasting or simply IF is unique in that it is time restrictive rather than food group restrictive. It’s the act of fasting for long periods of time then eating during specific intervals instead of restricting yourself from different types of food while keeping regular mealtimes.
Humans have been dieting since ancient times- before convenience stores, on-demand food delivery, and microwave ovens. Our ancestors had to hunt and gather for every meal, meaning they literally had to be the predator among the vast choices of prey in the wild. Sometimes it can be unsuccessful, which pushed them to involuntarily fasting. If fasting could be done back then, it can most certainly be picked up now with all of our knowledge and conveniences.
