The specifics of intermittent fasting

There are three approaches to take:

  • Alternate day fasting: Eat whatever you want on off days, but limit calories to around 500 on fasting days.
  • The 5:2 diet, which involves fasting during the week and making eating what you want on weekends.
  • Time-restricted eating. Eating is limited to an eight-hour window each day. Most people make it from noon to 8 p.m.

The diet doesn't specify what you should be eating, only when.
