There has been quite a bit of research into alternate day fasting and 2-3 books written about it. It all (that I know of) looked at it from a calorie perspective and the ‘plans’ allow some food (usually 500 calories) on the fasting day.
Go to Amazon and search for alternate day fasting and you will get plenty of results. The book by James B Johnson was my first ever exposure to the idea of IF. His plan is commonly called the JUDDD Diet.
