I might agree except that in the context of this thread, 14 hours was mentioned as a fasting period. And lots of people on this board consider 18 hours of no food to be IF. I just consider it doing that with which I'm comfortable. I also occasionally do 24 hour periods where I only consume ~450 calories in clear liquid form. I would guess that some water purists wouldn't consider that a fast.I don't really think of "fasting" in terms of anything less than 24 hours. When people say they fast every day, as in they skip breakfast and have BP coffee instead, that's nice but not really fasting in my mind.
