A Tid-bit of Encouragement!

I found this on Krista Varady's FB page
https://www.facebook.com/TheEveryOtherDayDiet

You JUDD long-timers probably know this already, and I was hoping this was true, but happy to see some scientific findings:

Xantha asks: “Does fasting decrease muscle mass?”

Dr. Varady: In general, when someone is losing weight using traditional calorie restriction, they lose 75% of weight as fat and the remaining 25% as muscle. Findings from our lab show that this ratio is altered with EOD. During EOD, most subjects only lose 10% of weight as muscle and 90% as fat. Thus, EOD may help to retain muscle mass, which can in turn help to keep your metabolism high.


Woo hoo!

This is great to hear, and I'm glad there's some science to back it up. I'm trying really hard to eat more protein and get adequate exercise so that I don't lose my valuable muscle!

Thanks for posting this link. I had thought that this was the case with my weight loss with EOD fasting from my bodyfat measuring scale and measurements but wasn't sure if it was really possible.
