I tried it recently for six weeks, it didn't work for me but that doesn't mean it won't work for others.
I got used to being hungry before it was time to break the fast, in fact I found that part empowering and it took away a lot of the dilemmas and thoughts about food since it was no longer an option 'after hours' - what was hard for me was keeping the calories down once I was allowed to eat. Being hungry AND eating a limited amount while I could eat was too much for me.
When after six weeks I realized I'd only lost one kilo, when a few years ago I lost over a kilo a week using a different method - I concluded that this was not for me and reverted back to the method that worked for me then.

I think it needs to be a good 'shidduch' of what works for you and your mindset. If you can stick by it, it's healthy and it works for you - stick by it. If not - switch.

In theory, you should be feasting when not fasting. Ideally with low carb, high fat, moderate protein but you should not be under eating. That is how to kill your metabolism
