I started doing intermittent fasting six years ago after doctors told me to quit the gym for a year. I had injured my abs and back, and doctors advised me not to exercise, not even do cardio, till I’m fully recovered.
Things went down from there since all I was doing, besides work, was eat anything I can get my hands on (I’m a foodie, or that’s how I used to think of myself.) I gained 50 pounds in no time, and I had to find a way to control my appetite and lose the extra weight without breaking a sweat.
Thankfully, I found out about intermittent fasting in a book (God I love reading), and it’s been changing my life since then. I’ve lost all the extra weight and experienced tons of physical and mental benefits some of which I’d never gain without fasting.
