I agree anything that causes continuous stress is bad. I find IF really valuable because the "eat now, eat more" messaging nowadays really is overwhelming. There are days where I have no biological appetite and still need to deflect spontaneous food cues constantly--coworkers, family, housemates all offer to share a "snack" (often hugely caloric). By defining a rough meal window I can say no thanks and get back to work rather than a bunch of analysis and cognitive restraint each time.
