There are several different types of intermittent fasting, each with its own approach and recommended fasting period. Here are some of the most common types:

16/8 fasting. This involves fasting for 16 hours per day and having an 8 hour eating window.

Eat-stop-eat. This involves fasting for 24 hours once or twice a week, such as not eating from dinner one day until dinner the next day.

Alternate diet fasting. This involves fasting every other day, where you eat normally on one day and limit calorie intake to 500-600 calories on the next day.

5:2 diet. This involves eating normally for five days per week and restricting calories to 500-600 per day on the remaining two days of the week.

Choosing the right type of intermittent fasting depends on your personal preferences, lifestyle and healthy goals. It is important to consult with professional nutritionist before starting any type of diet.
