If intermittent fasting is required to loose weight then its better and easier to skip the supper or dinner meal. Having a filling snack or earlier meal for lunch is good, then you can skip the dinner. Research suggest that Fasting overnight is better, then eating early in the morning will be more suitable. Research also shows that fasting for 10 – 16 hrs can cause your body to turn the fat stores into energy which releases ketones into the blood stream.
The main aim to fast for at least 12 hrs, will help your body to focus on cell repair, and improve your blood sugar. (but not recommended for diabetic)
