Intermittent Fasting

I recently began intermittent fasting and trying to control my diet.  I wanted to see if I could overcome hunger and give my metabolism a change.  To this end, I've been fasting on weekdays from about 21:00 in the evening until sometime around noon the next day.  This is not really a true fasting period, since I allow myself to have water and bulletproof coffee (coffee mixed with coconut oil and butter) and sometimes a seed tea (tea mixed with chia seeds).  Combining this change in my eating habits with all the exercise I've been getting, I have seen some major improvements in the way I feel and look.  I'm not making any major conclusions yet, but I think intermittent fasting may be something I keep in my life from her on.  It's not very hard to do and it feels great.  Also, on the weekends I don't follow any fasting schedule, working my metabolism even more.
