From Monday to Friday, I go to the gym after work. Saturday and Sunday are reserved for my rest days to recharge, to spend more time with my books and with writing, or to catch up with my friends. That’s my typical rest day. Continue reading
When you’re sitting on your ass all day, you feel lethargic. When you’re on you’re couch watching TV, you feel tired. That’s because motion is life. Contrary to the belief that moving is tiring, it actually makes you more energetic. So get moving!

- Intermittent Fasting Fears (where she’s dispels the misconceptions on IF)
- Why Intermittent Fasting is a Breeze

I used to be the guy who suffered from constipation, diarrhoea, and other digestive tract problems. Can you imagine the discomfort and pain it gave me whenever I was outside our house? I had to condition myself to be prepared as it might happen anywhere, in a restaurant, in a party, in a public commute, in a movie theatre, and even on vacation, on a beach, in the mountain, or in a different country.
