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

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.

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 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.
