It should be noted that the replacement of muscle protein requires time and appropriate exercise. If one over-eats while breaking the fast, they can quickly regain their former weight as fat without completely replacing the lost muscle. (For every 10kg (22 lb.) of weight lost and regained, there results in 10% or 1 kg (2.2 lb.) less protein tissue. If a person goes on three weight loss programs per year during which 10 kg (22 lb.) is lost and regained each time, that would, theoretically, result in the body composition containing 6 kg (13.2 lb.) less protein tissue (mainly muscle) in two years. This calculation would be modified by diet and exercise habits.)
This has important connotations to persons fasting to lose weight or those doing frequent short fasts, such as one day a week.
