Preventing Muscle Loss - Advice?

I've been JUDDDing for the past few days, things are going great, but I'm starting to worry about potentially losing muscle due to DD. I have to stick to a rigorous workout routine due to being in ROTC. I'm also taking a VERY low carb/ketogenic approach to help with hunger and my insulin resistance. So my question is: Should I focus my calories on protein on DD to prevent muscle loss? Or should I make them higher fat to help with ketosis?

I really can't afford to lose any muscle, gotta keep increasing those push-up reps!!!

I don't do any rigorous exercise like you do, but I have DDs that are 0-200 cals and I have not noticed muscle loss. I've been juddding since March of 2012 and if anything I see muscle definition in places I'm shocked about.

Maybe some of the JB who workout regularly can help you out more.

I'm NK and make sure I make my minimum protein number every day. Less than 10 carbs on DD, 25 on UD. The balance is fat. I think all the authors agree that you should not lose muscle if you get enough protein.

Dr J says as long as UD calories are high enough, the body burns fat preferentially on DD. Meaning muscle is spared and even enhanced. From experience, I would add that UD calories need to start early enough - meaning since you exercise hard, don't fast most of UD before eating and breaking the DD magic in the evening.

Like Carly, I did not increase my exercise level but I have new muscles all over the place.

You have a great advantage with JUDDD ands its muscle-sparing effect. Top that off with eating enough protein on UD and some protein on DD, as well as some basic strength exercises (squats, bicep curls, tricep extensions etc -- youtube has tons of great workouts!).

I have done this, and in the last couple of months I have noticed no muscle loss ..I am loving the muscle definition !

Thanks for the replies! I'll stop worrying about it then, I'll be sure to get protein in on DD, and I also take BCAA's with my workouts, as well as when I feel a bit weak during my DD, so it sounds like I should be fine
