Fasting February Dexa Scan Results

First I should mention some that between March 1 and March 2 I gained an additional 7 pounds back.  I'm attributing that to more dehydration that I previously guessed. I obviously wasn't thrilled about that, but Fasting February was an experiment and I wanted to see what would happen.

But then I got my DexaScan results.  I lost 13 pounds of body fat between scans.  Given that I fasted for about 23 days, this matches up with Dr. Fung's statement that people tend to lose about 1/2 pound of fat each fasting day.  1 pound of that fat was visceral fat. This is the fat around internal organs in the abdominal cavity and is the most dangerous place to have excess fat.  So I was very happy to lose a pound there.

I also gained 7.4 pounds of lean body mass over Fasting February.  More evidence that it is possible to gain muscle while losing fat.   Even while fasting!
