To say that Intermittent Fasting (IF) has been widely popular in the Philippines is a huge understatement.
The said dietary practice has been featured in Television shows, magazines and shared across social media platforms as ‘before and after’ pictures never ever lie. With that said, the domino effect of women wanting to get skinnier or lose some fats is definitely expected and many of us Pinays have been crazily obsessive about this fad.
I have tried Intermittent Fasting and all I can say is, it has improved many functions in my body. I started observing that I am sharply focused when it comes to my work hour which is also a time that I am not in my eating window. To make it more favorable, I started noticing that my weight drastically dropped in just 2 weeks of Intermittent Fasting. I am also fairly certain that when I got used to IF, I never craved for sugary treats that I normally would and so far, it has been a stress free situation when it comes to how my moods react to stressors that usually piss me off. And for emphasis, I did feel LIGHTER.
Sounds, great right?
But hold on, your female body wants to speak with you first.
I hear you. You want to lose weight and post those ‘Before and After’ photo stat. But if you are a woman, you might want to slow down every tips and trick you read on the Internet. You might not know it but practicing Intermittent Fasting can affect your fertility and the crazy effects of hormonal imbalance.
