You might be hearing a lot of chatter about intermittent fasting (IF). The basics: You can eat what you want, but only during a specific timeframe.
One version, 5:2, lets you eat normally for five days and then “fast” for two days with 500 calories each day. Another version is Fast-5, where you eat only within a 5-hour period each day and fast for the remaining 19 hours.
There’s scientific evidence that this way of eating works. One study found that people who practiced for eight weeks lost more body fat than those in the control group.
