Alternate day fasting vs. caloric restriction?

Does anyone have information about the pros and cons (in terms of fat loss, metabolic effects, and anything else) of alternate-day or intermittent fasting vs. alternate-day or intermittent caloric restriction (e.g. in diets like the 5:2 diet or the UpDayDown diet where on your "fast" days you take in 20% of your normal calories)?

Should I gorge prior to fasting?

How much should I eat in the days prior to fasting for a colonoscopy? My procedure is 2:00PM Tuesday (groan) so I'm being told "no solid foods after midnight Sunday night." I'm dreading working all day Monday with no food and then having to go all morning/early afternoon Tuesday. Does anyone know if it will help reduce the hunger if I gorge on Saturday and Sunday, and whether or not there are reasons not to do so. [more inside]
