Prime Minister Rishi Sunak

Prime Minister Intermittent Fasting

Rishi Sunak has said fasting once a week is "an important discipline for me" as part of a "balanced lifestyle".

Mr Sunak told the BBC's health editor Hugh Pym: "I tend to try and do some fasting at the beginning of every week as part of a general balanced lifestyle but everyone will do this differently." He admitted he also has "a weakness for sugary things". "It means that I can then indulge myself in all the sugary treats I like for the rest of the week," he added. Mr Sunak has previously described himself as a "Coca-Cola addict", revealing he prefers Mexican Coke because it is made with "cane sugar rather than high fructose corn syrup". Friends of the prime minister told the Sunday Times he does not eat from 17:00 on a Sunday until 05:00 on a Tuesday. He is also a fan of exercise and is known to enjoy morning workouts on his Peloton bike. Original article
