How does intermittent fasting work?
Under normal circumstances your body gets energy from the food you eat. This energy is stored in your liver and muscles. When in a fasting period, your body gets energy from the last reserve, "the fat". The longer you fast, more fat is burnt to generate energy.
Intermittent fasting is an amazing concept. It not only burns fat but also saves your some extra time as you don't need to plan and cook 3-4 meals a day.
