    Muscle Catabolism

    Hi. 5'6" 118 lb female here, trying alternate day fasting for the first time (36 hours no eating with water, 12 hours eating without restrictions). Out of curiosity, does anyone know how muscle is broken down during muscle catabolism? Is there a certain area that tends to lose muscle first? Does this vary by sex, age, or BMI? My EMF scale estimates that I am between 18 and 18.5% body fat.

    You can't quantify it because there are too many individual factors that affect rate of loss - plus it's very hard to measure in the short term.

    We can say with some confidence that you are increasing the risk of muscle loss by ADF - it would be better to spread the same average macros more evenly if possible.

    As said above there are far too many variables at play. If I may, what is the purpose for using the ADF protocol?
