Spontaneous meal skipping

Spontaneous meal skipping

In most scenarios, you don't need to follow a structured intermittent fasting plan in order to reap its benefits.

Skip meals from time to time when you're inclined to do so because you're not that hungry or too busy to cook. It's spontaneous but make sure to eat healthier during the other meals.

Alternate-day fasting

Alternate-day fasting

This type of intermittent fasting has several different versions but the gist of this is that you fast every other day. On some days this diet will leave you going to bed hungry and it's not a pleasant feeling so it's most likely unsustainable as a long-term diet plan.

Be mindful that this may seem rather extreme so this is not suitable for beginners.

The Eat-Stop-Eat diet plan was popularized by Brad Pilon, a fitness expert.

This type of diet involves a 24-hour fast twice a week. It's a fairly difficult type of intermittent fasting but you are not obligated to do a full-on 24 hours right away. It's fine t start from 10-14 hours and then moving upward from there.

Like any other types of intermittent fasting, water, coffee, or any other zero-calorie drinks are allowed.

The 16/8 Method

The 16/8 Method

The 16/8 method is the most popular type of intermittent fasting. This was also known as the Leangains protocol that was popularized by fitness expert Martin Berkhan.

This method basically means that you fast for 14-16 hours a day and then restricting your eating window to 8-10 hours per day. You can easily fit in three meals within that window.

However, it is important to keep in mind that this will not work if you consume an excessive amount of calories and don't eat primarily healthy.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Jamyson Haug

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
