It is great for me and work great.
I am 49 year old and I start to practice IF (intermittent fasting) 6 months ago.
I don't eat from 6PM to 12PM next day every day. I drink water if I need it but mostly I don't need it.
The skin is better, my best time of focusing is in the morning before the lunch. Pain goes away.
There is lots of data out there that support the IF, it is more important to eat rarely than to limit the calories and eat often.
Ideally is to have a good one meal a day. There are lots of people who do that and they feel and look great.
You will have a lot more energy during the day. Read the book: "The Code of Obesity" and you get some great explanation about it how it works. Also in 2016 the Nobel Prize for biochemistry was taken by a Japanese doctor that studied for more than a decade the effect of fasting for all living cells. Great effect in rejuvenation and maintain your health. The science is there along the common sense. What we are bombarded daily is the crap sold by food industry and pharma that has no interest in curing the diseases but in selling more crap for profit. Intermittent fasting is not for kid or pregnant women but works great for the rest. Don't believe in the crap that says is mandatory to eat your breakfast. You don't need it, especially if you are an Apo4.
People that live in Nigeria have a higher rate of Apo4 gene than westerners but very rarely they get Alzheimer (read none).
But these people don't eat like us westerners, the food intake is scarce and once a day.
Lots of data out there that show the benefits of limiting the time windows of eating during the day.
Fast and feast.
If you stay hungry for small periods of time you are healing yourself most probably.
