2. Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting isn’t as much of a diet as it is a lifestyle pattern because it doesn’t suggest what you should eat, but rather when you should eat. There are different ways to do intermittent fasting—the most popular is the 16/8 method, which involves skipping breakfast and keeping a gap of eight hours between your meals followed by a period of 16 hours when you fast completely. The other two popular methods are Eat-Stop-Eat, which involves not eating for 24 hours at least once or twice a week and the 5:3 method, which involves consuming between 500 and 600 calories on any two non-consecutive days of the week, while eating your regular diet for the remainder of the five days.
