16:8 Intermittent Fasting

I am a grazer. Whenever there is food around, I eat it, hungry or not. I really should weigh 300+ pounds, but thanks to frequent workouts, I don’t. It’s not enough, however. I always tend to consume more calories than what I burn.
I then read about 16:8 fasting. It sounded gimmicky, but it fit my schedule pretty well, so I decided to give it a shot. That was almost 2 months ago.
So far..
1. I consume fewer calories overall. I can eat only so much in 8 hours per day instead of 16.
2. Fat is melting away; very slowly, but it is definitely going away.
3. I crave weird foods when coming off fast, but not junk foods. Today, I craved peanut butter and banana sandwich, drizzled with cinnamon honey sauce, with a side of avocado sprinkled with soy sauce.
