Re: Awesome info Chris

Um, it is my engineering background and common sense that tells me I won't need as much muscle if I am half my body weight not any text books or other sources. But just to clarify, I am not particularly worried about ANYTHING.

You also say: "Is every other source lying when they said fasting will not result in burning fat off and just muscle tissue?"

Unfortunately this tells me that you have a closed mind, and you are not really able to logically argue your point. You are only seeing what you believe to be true, just as you earlier mis-read starvation for fasting. You are not looking at the stuff that Chrisb1 has referred to, because you don't believe it.

By the way if you read my earlier posts, you will see that a month ago I would have agreed with you. Now however I am enlightened, and that is a one way journey.

I am probably a lot older than you. It may take you 20 or 30 years to realise that not all you see in text books is true, and understand fully why that is so. As I mentioned you quoted "starvation" in your earlier post, and then applied it to a fasting situation because you thought that is what it meant. Do you think this is a mistake that others may have made when writing articles, or mis-quoted when referring to those original articles because they didn't know the difference? Also, there are commercial reasons why fasting is not mainstream in today's consumer society. You can sell diet foods, how can you sell a fast, in an empty box? Who would be held responsible if your average person didn't read the instructions and decided to "cheat" and snack out every evening, thus making themselves seriously ill? But to your credit you are asking questions, though are the purpose of these questions to find out information about fasting, or to convince yourself that fasting is dangerous and will result in muscle and bone loss?

You are also talking about doing a fast yourself, quite a long one at that. Commendable, I think many of the earlier scientists used themselves as guinea pigs when developing drugs etc. However, I would say to you, convince yourself that fasting is safe before you embark upon this journey, that is what I did. Or do a short one first, so you know what to expect. Why? Well partly for your own reassurance, but also can you imagine trying to get support from this forum if you think your bones are going to disintegrate and your muscles whither away?!

Also if you do a fast, get a body fat measuring scale so you can see what's going on.
