Okay, so I've been reading up a lot about intermittent fasting and I think I'm ready to try it.. But one question: after fasting for a certain number of hours of the day, are you supposed to then eat as many calories as you would've during the day, or only eat one meal, or what? I hope this makes sense.. like, let's say these are the options:
Wake up at 7am Fast for 16 hours First meal at 11pm: ~400 calories Go to sleep; eat normally next day
Wake up at 7am Fast for 16 hours First meal at 11pm: ~400 calories Next meal at 2am: ~500 calories Next meal at 4am: ~300 calories Go to sleep
Or... something? The reason I ask is because I read a blog post that a guy did about IF and he basically did it the latter way, which to me seems totally counter-intuitive because I thought the point was about restricting calories. HMMMM?
Any help appreciated :p
