Intermittent fasting is not about eating just one meal a day at all.

It consists of consuming all of one's food intake over a specific time range generally ranging from 4 to 8 hours.

Thus, if you take your first meal of the day at 12 p.m., the last meal must end no later than 8 p.m., which will leave your body 16 hours of fasting before the next food intake, the next day at 12 p.m.

The virtues of intermittent fasting are no longer to be proven whether on sleep, weight loss, the body.

And the practice of intermittent fasting does not bring any deficiencies, it is the choice of your diet that will bring or no nutritional deficiencies.

The main difficulty lies in consuming everything your body needs over a limited window of time because you will only have 8 hours to consume all your daily intake, hoping to have been able to help you 😊

Despite what is said in the other answers, the practice of fasting has an only spiritual interest, to respect certain obligations of the religious calendars.

Religion has been desacralized and we are going to put mystical practices at the heart of "holistic care"

No, I mean no, the serious medical publication has ever shown the benefit of fasting outside of certain very specific situations, such as before surgery under general anesthesia.

The only real advantage of fasting is to have an empty stomach, it is practical for certain treatments.

On health, there are lots of hypotheses, but none of them are verified by methodologically sound studies.

Welcome to the world of "detox" health, a world where marketing and untested ideas thrive.

I have turned to intermittent fasting twice and I must say that it pays off! The idea of ​​skipping breakfast seems like a tough one, however, once you get past the first day, you'll find that it's not as complicated as it looks! I remember losing more than 5kg in one week. However, remember to also practice physical activity on a daily basis.

Intermittent fasting can have many benefits for your body and brain. It can cause weight loss and may reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. It may also help you live longer. So, what is there to lose really? According to some researchers, fasting for 10–16 hours can cause the body to turn its fat stores into energy, which releases ketones into the bloodstream. 

As a matter of fact, some research suggests that intermittent fasting may be more beneficial than other diets for reducing inflammation and improving conditions associated with inflammation, such as Alzheimer's disease.

Well, both yes and no. Intermittent fasting has been quite popular these past days and for the right reason. Scientific research and other evidence showed that intermittent fasting is responsible for having an impact on your overall memory. So, it's not just benefits of physical health ( which are plenty, as you would already know), it's also quite good for your overall health. 
On the contrary, if you only have one open window the whole day, it can get pretty bad because then you may eat unnecessarily more and try to fulfill your unhealthy cravings as well. Besides, it may give you a headache, make you feel more irritable as well as increase your overall stress level.
