Some people swear by it. It's the preferred way to eat (or not eat) for a group that spans scientists to regular Joes, all of whom brag about mental clarity, through-the-roof energy and weight loss. 

They go all day without eating, then, come dinner, fill their pie hole with whatever they want, including pie—no counting calories required.

On paper, the benefits of one meal a day, or a 20-hour fast, sound perfect. You don't have to worry about what you're going to eat during daylight hours, which could save you time, money, and kitchen clean up. 

Plus, studies of time-restricted eating suggest it can improve insulin sensitivity, fight disease, and boost weight loss.

But, of course, there are some major caveats. An empty stomach for prolonged periods of time can also lead to fatigue, headaches, irritability, brain fog, and that hangry feeling—something women are more prone to.

Fasting can also lead to rebound binging on the wrong foods. When you have cravings and you're cranky, it's easy to overconsume foods high in carbs, fat, and calories.

In addition, you're probably not eating enough fruits and vegetables or getting your recommended daily 25 g of fiber in one meal, which is the optimal number for health and fighting chronic disease.
