What are the stages of alternate day fasting?
Alternate-day fasting typically involves two stages: fasting days and feasting days. On fasting days, you restrict your calorie intake to a certain level, usually around 500 calories or less. This can be achieved by consuming low-calorie meals or practicing complete fasting, where you consume no calories for the entire day. Conversely, you can eat more or less on feasting days to meet your calorie needs. This cyclic pattern of fasting and feasting is repeated on alternate days.
