Intermittent fasting (or time-restricted feeding, as it’s typically referred to in the scientific literature) has a long history. The yearly fluctuations of calorie availability in pre-industrial societies tended to cause (involuntary) periods of fasting; most religions throughout history have practiced some sort of fasting; and today, many Muslims – approximately 20-25% of the world’s populations – forgo all food and water from sunrise to sunset during their holy month of Ramadan.
