MightySunTzu, i would like to thank you for the invaluable sharing, information, and support of others in the forum going through fasting. I have started saving some of these fasting related threads to learn more.
I dont know if you will get to read this considering closure time of these forums being so close. I will try anyway.

Even at such a low weight my body fat percentage, though low, was not even nearly dangerously low. I looked overly thin at 138 but i knew that what really mattered was where i would normalize a few weeks later with the return of these temporary losses and as well i was taking advantage of this prime opportunity to quickly restore any and all of the minor losses in muscle. As a side note, i place a high value in such measurements as body fat percentage, muscle mass and bone mass, and discount the importance of scale weight. I don't think most people will gain back 25 pounds before stabilizing, but i had a strong rebuilding emphasis.
CountryGirl who started this thread, had asked you how much weight you have lost with fasting, and this was part of your response on page 1 of the thread. If anyone needs a fuller reference to this in future, here is the permalink to the specific reply that was made; 40 days of water fasting....
Can you elaborate in regard "Strong Rebuilding Emphasis" in the last sentence of the quote.
What does that entail. Does it involve purely a physical exercise/ muscle rebuilding, and/ or does it involve some nutritional strategy?
Thanks if you can reply.
