In an exclusive chat with Pinkvilla, he said, "They can, intermittent fasting is a lifestyle for everyone and is not a weight loss diet. It cleans up our body and get rid of toxins. And Keto you should do, only if you want rapid weight loss for any event or for any particular photoshoot."

How IF works?

For the unversed, the person who partakes in intermittent fasting has to fast for around 14 or 16 hours. During the fasting hours, one can only drink water, coconut water, black coffee, or black tea. The fasting window can be expanded and contracted as per the dieter's body and goal requirements. 

As per some studies, intermittent fasting helps to bolster keto as our body burns more fat stores for energy in the fasted state. This will help the body to enter ketosis state soon and the same will lead to more burning of fats.

How Keto works? 

When our body has low levels of glucose (the primary source of energy), it starts burning fat stores aka ketones for energy. The burning state of ketones is known as ketosis.
