Or if you want to eat breakfast for a day's worth of energy, you can try having breakfast at 6 AM and continue your next meal at 10 PM that day to end the day. This is not too difficult for those who just started!

Even if you intend to fast for 24 hours, there is still a way to make this easier: For example, choose to have lunch on Monday (12 PM) and you will soon be able to eat again at lunch on Tuesday (12 PM). This time frame works to make sure your eating time matches the time you are most active.
