I've always been skeptical of full-on fasting. But I have noticed that when I feel best-regulated eating/health-wise, there are days when I really just don't want to eat much, more like the modified 'fast' you mentioned. Then when a good workout or something happens, I want to eat a bunch, and enjoy the food that much more. Which sortof/maybe goes with some of this.

Isn't 1600 calories on average still overall calorie restriction though, for most men?

Yep, I find the same!

Totally. But apparently not for the retirement home! (Their weight stayed stable.) These were considered the "healthy" seniors of 1957 who nonetheless were in what sounds like a (light) special care institution...so, they're old to begin with (and therefore of greatly reduced muscle mass if they live like ordinary modern people) + adversely selected for lack of activity/independence.
