We’ve all seen this kind of post before but it’s a little reminder to myself as well as everyone else! Recently I’ve found myself comparing my body, my strength, my weight, my appearance in general to girls on Instagram and it can be a very toxic hole to fall down
The photos & videos we post of ourselves are always us looking our best with the perfect angles and lighting and when you’re seeing these things all day everyday it can sometimes be hard to remember that isn’t reality!♀️ I need to remind myself that no two people look the same and although there are room for improvements I am in a decent shape! I’m not my smallest at all but I’m no where near my biggest either - and if I’m honest, I prefer myself with a bit more meat♀️ No one is perfect and we all have our own unique shape, size, style and features which are all equally as beautiful - let’s celebrate who we are and what we look like without worrying about others! Love yourself and the skin you’re in and you’ll find yourself a lot more content with life

Here is the little info/tips for intermittent fasting (by @oualidzaim)
IF is an eating pattern in which you eat in a restricted time window (3-12 h) and fast the rest of the day. Most common & practical way of doing IF is to skip breakfast.⠀
Even if people tend to eat more during the rest of the day, research shows skipping breakfast results in less calories eaten. Less calories eaten = caloric deficit = automatic weight loss. Moreover, saving calories for the 2nd part of the day allows for less meals to be eaten (because less time), which results in larger more satisfying meals. Larger dinners including lots of carbs release serotonin, improving brain chemistry and helping with sleep problems.⠀
IF also helps with hunger control because 12-21 h of fasting shrinks the stomach and makes most people less hungry when they break the fast. IF has also been proven to lower blood glucose & improve insulin sensitivity, which helps eliminate cravings. Hydration during the fasting window helps a lot with hunger control.⠀
IF improves several other health markers, for ex lowering total cholesterol (5-20%) & concentrations of tryglicerides in the blood (17-50%). ⠀
And many more benefits.⠀
