Intermittent fasting has become very trendy in the past few years, and several different types/methods have emerged.
Here are some of the most popular ones:
- The 16/8 Method: Fast for 16 hours each day, for example by only eating between noon and 8pm.
- Eat-Stop-Eat: Once or twice a week, don't eat anything from dinner one day, until dinner the next day (a 24 hour fast).
- The 5:2 Diet: During 2 days of the week, eat only about 500–600 calories.
Then there are many other variations.
I am personally a fan of the 16/8 method (popularized by Martin Berkhan of LeanGains), as I find it to be the simplest and the easiest to stick to.
In fact, I pretty much naturally eat this way. I am usually not very hungry in the morning, and don't feel compelled to eat until about 1 pm.
