Netflix doc 'Fasting'...

Anybody seen the new documentary called 'Fasting' on Netflix?
 
Watched it the other night and it's pretty good, without too much hype.  It interviews specialists regarding the benefits and some potential drawbacks.  It also interviews enthusiasts who have benefitted from it, plus the potential eating disorders it has created.
 
One of the take aways I got from it was regarding weight loss.  I've been doing IF for some time and never thought of it as an approach to weight loss. But... after feeding two groups of lean mice (one on a restricted eating window, the other on a regular feeding window, both on exactly the same food) the IF group stayed lean and the non-IF group gained body fat...

    If calories are equated, I can only think it’s down to the autophagy caused by the fasting.

    Sounds good though. Will watch it this weekend. Fasting has helped me lose over 10% of my body weight this year
