Re: muscle loss

I pretty much agree with this, that's one reason I believe that exercising should be continued or even begun while fasting according the ability and energy of the faster. It not only allows the body to clearly see the muscles as useful but will burn fat directly for energy also.

The only point I would challenge is the immediate cannibalism of any muscle tissue. I have studied body building literature also and spent several years in gyms building muscles also. I have found that a short break of a matter of weeks will result in little if any loss of strength, any longer and yes the muscles will start to shrink and your strength will suffer. Just like we are finding with eating- we do that more than we should, and exercise is the same- the body won't remove the muscle we've needed for years simply because we aren't using them for a few days. It takes a little bit longer than that, and Shelton agreed from his experience here which shows that the majority of fasters he supervised actually gained in strength significantly in the first 20 days or so. Something that could not happen if muscle mass was lost.
