    Unveiling the Magic of Intermittent Fasting: A Personal Odyssey to Wellness

    Greetings, fellow health enthusiasts! Buckle up for a ride filled with cravings, determination, and a sprinkle of self-discovery. Join me on a two-month adventure through the world of intermittent fasting as we unravel the truth behind the hype. Spoiler alert: it’s been nothing short of transformative!

    The Decision to Fast – A Quest for Health

    Around 10 a.m., my stomach began its hunger symphony, but the lure of tempting food didn’t sway me. Why? Two months ago, armed with newfound BMI awareness, I embraced the challenge of intermittent fasting. It was time to prioritize my health after months of succumbing to the seduction of junk food.

    Understanding Intermittent Fasting – More Than Just Hunger

    Intermittent fasting – not just skipping meals, but a strategic dance with time. From 16/8 to OMAD, I delved into various fasting windows. Seeking wisdom from my friend, an emergency medicine expert and intermittent fasting advocate, I discovered the secret: tapping into the body’s fat reserves!

    The Journey Unfolds – Challenges and Triumphs

    Skipping breakfast, navigating hawker centers, and battling the infamous “hangry” moments – my daily routine morphed. Weeks brought headaches, crankiness, and the juggling act of fasting with unpredictable work hours. Every challenge became a stepping stone towards transformation.

    Seeking Guidance – Expert Tips and Tricks

    Feeling stuck? Enter Cory Cruz, an intermittent fasting veteran. Her insights on hydration, meal choices, and the 80/20 rule turned the tide. Dr. Mary Chong shared wisdom on mindful eating, plate size psychology, and the 20-minute brain-fullness lag. Suddenly, my journey became a holistic pursuit of well-being.

    To Diet or Not to Diet – Navigating Nutritional Choices

    Decoding the diet dilemma with Assistant Professor Varina Tan, a dietitian. Keto, paleo, vegan, gluten-free – combining these with intermittent fasting sounds tempting, but risks outweigh benefits. The key takeaway? Less is more – fewer calories, processed foods, and mindful eating.

    Conclusion: Celebrating Transformation – Results and Reflections

    Drumroll, please! After eight weeks, the numbers spoke volumes. I bid farewell to 3 kgs, witnessed a drop in body fat percentage, and waved goodbye to visceral fat. My family doctor, the guiding light, confirmed the positive changes. Despite challenges, the results affirmed the power of discipline and mindful eating.

    In the end, intermittent fasting isn’t just a diet; it’s a lifestyle shift. It’s about embracing discipline, making informed food choices, and prioritizing well-being. As I continue this journey, I encourage you to explore what works for you. Cheers to unlocking wellness, one mindful bite at a time!
