Intermittent fasting is one of the most talked about diet trends. The fasting method requires people to perform short term fasts at regular intervals, where they limit the calorie consumption drastically for certain days of the week or during the specific window of the day.
Proponents of the diet claim that it is great for weight loss and helps you stave off heart disease.
But doctors and experts have warned that the diet is not for everyone. Most men who have tried the diet have reported positive results. But for many women, any type of Intermittent fasting, be it overnight 16 hours fasting or capping the calories at 500 for two days a week have backfired.
