Living in a continuously evolving society has made people change their ways of living. From the simple day-by-day process of low-key life, things have changed into a modern fast-paced way of life. It’s easier than ever (in the public’s thoughts) to eat and consume readily available so-called ‘fast’ foods. However, does this change allow you to control and maintain a healthy lifestyle or does it act the other way around?
Whatever the circumstances are, progress only happens in response to the practice of self-discipline and love.

“Let’s stick with fasting in the sense that if you’re normally used to eating breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacking in between, let’s take one step forward and cut out snacking… I think that’s a good starting point if you want to start getting into some longer fasts throughout the day.– Brian Gryn

“I would say that the biggest roadblock would be making health a priority, and sort of figuring out why you want to get healthy. That’s one thing to say that you want to lose weight. Why do you want to do it?” – Brian Gryn
“I think as we age, we have more priority. We have other priorities like kids, our work, and I think the key is to realize that having kids shouldn’t be used as an excuse to work out, but it should be a reason as to why you should work out.” – Brian Gryn
“Whatever camp you’re in, I think that one thing that you can change that can be sort of a simple change over time is when you’re eating and you’re fasting and feasting windows. I think that can make a big difference to help with controlling weight and even losing weight.” – Brian Gryn
“In between the meals, you could have, you know, perhaps some coffee or some tea, but let’s not have anything with any caloric value in between those meals. I think that’s a good starting point if you want to start getting into some longer fasts throughout the day.” – Brian Gryn
