Here are a few examples of popular intermittent fasting strategies.
1. Alternate Day Fasting
36 hour fast. 12 hour feeding window.
2. LeanGains by Martin Berkhan
16 hour fast. 8 hour feeding window.
Martin has a far more scientific and skeptical approach than most other intermittent fasting proponents. He also doesn’t discount the importance of calories or macronutrients.
3. The 8-hour Diet by David Zinczenko
The same 16/8 timing schedule as LeanGains.
4. Eat Stop Eat by Brad Pilon
24 hour fast twice per week.
Similar to Martin, Brad is more reserved in his claims and still understands that calories count.
5. The Fast-5 Diet by Bert Herring
19 hour fast. 5 hour feeding window.
6. The 5:2 Diet by Kate Harrison
Two days per week, men eat 600 calories and women eat 500. You eat normally the rest of the week. This is closer to intermittent caloric restriction than intermittent fasting.
7. The Warrior Diet by Ori Hofmekler
20 hour fast. 4 hour feeding window.
The Warrior Diet really isn’t intermittent fasting given that you’re allowed to eat vegetables and fruit during the fasting window, but it’s close.
