On my friends side, he says Intermittent Fasting has tons of benefits and doesnt't have to be done with Keto.

I have said " if it doesnt have anything to do with Keto, why fast? just stick to the calories and thats it."

i mean correct me if i am wrong (i checked google and forget it. tons of "experts" ) but IF is just a way to restrict your calories thats it. say you eat 1800 calories a day for weight loss. if you eat 200 calories at lets say 8am, then you have the ENTIRE day to eat 1600. You don't have to wait but just be mindful of your eating.

What i am trying to say is there is no magic to it correct?

    It works for some people to limit WHEN they eat. There may or may not be other health benefits. I have a cousin who swears by it, and after a couple of weeks w/ a 5 hour eating window her blood sugars and a bunch of other #s have improved and her doc has reduced some of her medication levels.

    But I have no interest - simple calorie counting works well for me.
