How to do intermittent fasting?
The most commonly followed pattern is one where you eat early dinners, around 7 or 8 pm, and then have your next meal in a gap of 10, 12, 14 or 16 hours, whichever suits you. According to Luke, the fasting period can last for the as much time as it suits you. You don’t need to follow a strict pattern and starve yourself just because some website on the internet says so.
