If you're the rare person who hasn't heard about intermittent fasting, it's essentially a dieting method of scheduled fasting, restricting your food consumption into a smaller part of the day. It's one of the hottest trends right now, especially among celebrities—many of whom have claimed it's helped them shed pesky weight.
But, as this diet is easily reduced to simply starving yourself a controlled amount every day, many people have strong opinions against the fad. Then again, people who partake in IF (intermittent fasting) claim it's a healthier alternative that boasts many other benefits.
Jennifer Aniston kicked up the debate again as one of the latest stars to express her love for the diet. The actress revealed in October 2019 that she doesn't eat breakfast, but rather only consumes liquids like coffee and celery juice in the morning, leaving the rest of her eating for the final part of the day.
