I have indeed seen this happen dear Mblake.. if you do enough exercise, your body can retrieve energy from fat at 35 kJ per gram to build muscle which contains only 17 kJ per gram. The weight is largely made up of water, and the protein component can come from serum or other organs.. temporarily "borrowed".

I workout while fasting as long as I can. Somewhere after 3rd week it becomes harder usually.

You have to be mindful of what you are doing. Have a spot partner or better use machines.

Also use slow exercises with counting 10 sec for forward movement and 10 sec back. It’s much safer during fast.

If you combine workouts with the cardio to sweat it’s even better. It falls into Andre’s “5 steps”

mblake8- Check out Brad Pilon's blog, author of eat stop eat. He is in amazing shape and uses intermittent fasting with his weight training. Also check Leangains, different type of IF with lots of focus on building muscle.

Mblake8,

The 0101010 means that a '0' day is fasting, and a '1' is not fasting. You will see many different variations on this Board. The most common pattern I think you will see is 010.
