Intermittent fasting has gained immense popularity over recent years, due largely in part to its ease and effectivity. All over the world, people from all walks of life, whether normal everyday citizens to the biggest A-list celebrities have discovered this incredible time-restricted eating pattern.
As a result, intermittent fasting has become one of the hottest topics of conversation right now in the health and fitness community. Chances are that you may have heard of it. If you’re unfamiliar with it and want to give it a try, you may be wondering what benefits are in it for you and how it differs from your traditional diet.

Because of this, many fans of this particular health phenomenon harp about how easy it is to stick to, and how effective it is in helping you achieve your weight loss goals.

Manny Pacquiao is without question one of the greatest boxers of all time. His body of work spanning over two decades of excellence is legendary.

You’ve probably heard people call MMA, or mixed martial arts, “the fastest growing sport in the world”. There’s a good reason for that – it’s exciting as hell to watch. And what’s not exciting about it? Two highly-skilled athletes battling it out for glory in 3×5 minute rounds (or more) – that’s pretty intense if you ask us.
