    Academia already knew this since the early 1900’s. Our body will go into survival mode and get rid of fat before muscle after the first week of starvation. This is likely an adaptation because of scarse supplies of food when people were still tailing megafauna in Africa till one became vulnerable

      no, you need protein to survive and if you don't get any from diet, your body will take it from your muscles. but the less muscle you have and the more body fat you have, the more the body will try to use body fat instead of muscle.

    Its very, very hard to lose muscle. the most obvious answer is that people think that they are big. they bulk and they gain 4lbs a month and think thats a slow bulk. well you are not gaining ~50lbs of muscle in a year. In reality around ~5lbs of that was lean muscle. So when its time to cut, you just keep losing and losing and losing and losing. You lose all the size and all the strength from improved leverages and now after suicide cutting 45lbs for half a year you think you lost all this muscle and strength which in reality never was there.

    Now the other thing is that when you are on a prolonged deficit of course you feel weak after that. You are flat, empty glycogen storages, no energy. It doesnt directly mean that you have less muscle, if you'd go on a slight surplus for couple of weeks you would pick up and regain that lost strength very quickly. All in all you just didnt have the amount of lean muscle mass you thought you had to begin with.

      unless you have access to very expensive machines, those measurements aren't very accurate. nevertheless, he could've easily lost a mostly fat if he didn't have any muscle to begin with.

      >Its very, very hard to lose muscle
      wrong, it's very very easy to lose muscle. but it depends on much muscle you have. if you have considerably more muscle than if you didn't workout, you'll lose a ton. same with roiders who can lose a ton of muscle simply from stopping roids, even if they continue working out and eating enough. but if you've never worked out and don't have any muscle anyway, you won't lose the small amount you have unless you go auschwitz mode.

    If you're fat enough to go on a 55 day fast you shouldn't be here trying to tell people about diets. Post body. You won't, not FAsTer ever does.

    Your body will only use muscle if there's little to no fat available. The leaner you are the more muscle you'll lose when cutting.

    fat has nearly 6 times the caloric density as muscle.

      Same with mass density, and the body needs muscle to move whereas it is designed to store energy in fat.

    If you're gonna insert "cico" into this then you'd insert into anything. Literally any activity uses energy

    That's kinda the purpose of fat, isn't it? Our bodies trying to have a stock to survive on in case we don't find any food?

      yeah but according to "people" if you don't eat 200g of protein every day and work out 3+h you will lose 90% of the weight in lean body mass and the fat will remain almost intact

    fasting is a good tool for obese patients.
    would not recommend for anybody within a healthy weight range.
