    What happens to sore muscles during an intermittent fast?

    Hi All,
    I've fallen out of shape in the last year or so, and I'm getting started again with a 16:8 IF, having my first meal at noon. I'm officially cutting but will do some light weight training.

    Since I'm just starting out I'm extra sore, and I've been worried about my injured muscles during the period when I cannot eat. Will they wait patiently until noon to repair themselves?

    Or will they undergo an undesired destructive metabolic process because they're starved for protein/carbs/etc during the hours I'm fasting?

    Muscle catabolism isn’t taking place because you don’t eat for 16 hours as you are “fed.“ Your skeletal muscle is being repaired throughout the day, even during fasting periods.
