Intermittent fasting is a form of lifestyle choice taken by people for healthier weight management where they get to eat what they like with simultaneous exercise. 

Intermittent fasting is an eating pattern that cycles between a period of fasting and a specific period of eating that involves 16 hours of fasting per day or fasting for 24 hours twice per week.

But, people should know that there are health consequences related to intermittent fasting. 

It can affect people's social life because people are expected to eat within a specific time period, thus affecting parties, dine outs, etc. 

It can cause physical health issues such as feeling cold, constipation, headache, weakness, irritability, lack of concentration, and digestion problems. 

Women should be more careful because intermittent fasting can lead to irregular menstrual cycles and has the potential to cause reproductive problems.
