Why am I losing muscle while intermittent fasting?

Intermittent fasting could make it difficult to get enough calories to build muscle, especially if you are eating nutrient-dense foods that fill you up easily.

Additionally, you may have to make a bigger effort to get enough protein when eating less often than with a normal diet.During intermittent fasting we might have lack of protein.

Lack of proein is a huge culprit when it comes to muscle loss. The body doesn't store protein the same way it stores other nutrients, so, we have to eat it regularly. We can't expect fasting to do all the work, if what we do consume isn't well-balanced.

If you want to build muscle but cut down on body fat you have to combine intermittent fasting with KETO or you have to take 3 times a day protein shake , but be careful you might pack up on calories.

Something similar happened to me and now I don’t really care to bulk up as long my body fat is low but the problem that the stomach fat will remain if you don’t workout hard
