how am I putting on muscle at double the theoretical maximum rate?!

This equates to 0.587lbs/week, which is double what I...

Is it possible to loose weight and not loose 1 ounce of muscle?

Is doing a strength or bench press test after the weight loss a good way to know if you lost muscle or not? If you can still manage heavy weight, then the muscle is still there, right?

muslce

I just started a cutting phase. My body fat is probably around 20% or so. Do I need to worry about my body burning muscle? I want to keep as much of my gains as possible. Basically my question is, will the body burn off muscle if there is a ample supply of fat? I'm on a keto diet.
