IELTS Speaking Part 2 Sample in 2019 – Topic: Describe a healthy lifestyle you know

IELTS Cue Card: Describe a healthy lifestyle you know

You should say:

  • what it is

  • how you know it

  • what one would do to live this healthy lifestyle

  • and explain why it is healthy



I’m going to tell you about a new trend I’ve been hearing more and more about, intermittent fasting. Let me explain it to you, as many might automatically reject the idea, as we are programmed to believe that we should eat 3 full meals a day.

Intermittent fasting is when you cannot consume anything other than calorie-less beverages such as water, green tea, or black coffee except for in an hour window. Some can choose to keep up to an eight hour time window for eating- it’s up to you. You can choose to do it everyday or even just once a week. For example, a friend of mine has been fasting all day everyday except from 7pm-8pm. During this time, he can eat anything he wants, regardless of whether it’s low-calorie or not.  During just a two week period, he has lost 5 kilograms and claims to be feeling well.

To my surprise, I’ve read that there are several benefits to fasting. It is said that it aids in weight-loss, concentration, protection against disease, improved memory, and lower cholesterol. It came as a shock to me at first, as I thought that we unarguably need 3 meals per day. However, now I believe that that may not be the case, which I find intriguing (interesting).
