Jillian's never been one to shy away from giving strong opinions (remember her epic keto diet rant?) so this should be good...

Jillian says you should definitely eat on a fasting diet.

"A lot of people make the mistake of thinking fasting is synonymous with not eating or dramatically reducing your calories, which it isn't," she says. "Fasting is simply a period of time when you're not eating. It doesn't mean you're eating less, which isn't a bad thing if you're trying to lose weight but it's a separate issue."

28 Quick, Simple Dinner Recipes for One

28 Quick, Simple Dinner Recipes for One Table for One is a column by Senior Editor Eric Kim, who loves cooking for himself—and only himself—and seeks to celebrate the beauty of solitude in its many forms. In 1963, the German television station NDR recorded an 18-minute single take of Dinner for One, a comedy sketch written by Lauri Wylie.

But yeah, Jillian does not think fasting is going to help you lose weight.

"It isn't actually good for weight loss. That's just not true," she says. "The only thing that works for weight loss is calories in, calories out."

Jillian goes on to clarify that you still need to watch your calories while on an intermittent fasting diet.

It just matters how much you're consuming and how much you're burning."

Her best intermittent fasting advice? "I recommend eating every three to four hours, so it automatically gives you an overnight fast period of minimum 12, maximum 16 fasting hours. That is it."
