Partik said that the doctors recommended that there is nothing with her and if she would like to get rid off the puffy eyes, she could undergo surgery. She added that a friend who had tried dry fasting suggested it and she thought to give it a try.

She said that it is a bit hard in the beginning but then it is very convenient.
