Reverse dieting: Horses or Unicorns?

Intermittent Fasting, better known as IF, is one of the hot topics in the fitness industry today. Before we get down to the nitty gritty of IF, let me clarify one thing IF is NOT A DIET rather a dieting strategy. The famous quote, “A goal without a plan is just a wish”, perfectly fits in this case. Similarly,to meet your fitness goals, the tactics are as important as the diet. That is where IF comes into the picture.  The article will make things clear your doubts using WWH (What-Why-How) principle.

Rang Birangi !!
