Great info, but delivery was meh

I thought a lot of the content was great, but it could have been an hour shorter. The anecdotes dragged on and on. And the sound quality sucked...

But the actual information in the film was pretty great. It's inspired me to try intermittent fasting.

Instead of using medicine, rather fast a day. - Plutarch.

As a gym instructor and nutritionist, i totally endorse fasting under supervision. There is a thin line between fasting and starvation. Starvation leads to atrophy n wasting but fasting has been shown to induce autophagy, a process by which cells "clean up" cellular "garbage". Autophagy protects cells from excessive oxidative stress. Autophagy prevents cancerous growths, metabolic dysfunctions like obesity and diabetes. The three ways to Autophagy is fasting, low carb and exercise. Regarding the film, there was no need to show the Donner party. Starvation leads to low potassium thereby causing psychosis, whereas fasting prevents dementia. In fact, more emphasis shud have been on autophagy. More talks shud have been on the difference between starvation n fasting. Also important is that after fasting n weight loss regime one shud never forget to excrete the toxins with the use of high fiber foods.

Good topic, bad coverage, confusing and irrelevant information

First, I was hoping to find something that spoke more clearly about the science of fasting. Instead you get a few testimonials from doctors who had some of their patients turn their health around, and a lot of time is spent on that. Autophagy isn't even mentioned until nearly the end. I also was totally thrown by the section about the Donner Party, which seems completely out of place. I skipped half of it as it was repulsing me and not why I was watching a documentary about fasting. There are not seven methods discussed, it is more anecdotes about different people who used fasting in different ways. The information feels incomplete, and scattered. This documentary is awful.
