So I was sick from Thursday until Sunday night and I couldn't eat anything but crackers and ginger ale. My weight before getting sick was 177 and now it is 171. Did I just lose a whole lot of muscle or what? Does the body turn into a muscle buring machine when it gets sick?? I had a fever if that matters.

You lost water weight, that is all about it, I think!!. You should have drank lots of water and liquids while being sick.

Well i drank water while I could, and I tried to keep my urine as clear as possible. For the most part it was.

Should I eat at maintenance for a few days before going back to dieting?

Sorry to tell you, you lost 6 pounds of muscle in 4 days. :moon:

Muscle can be easily lost, but not that easy, hehe. Don't worry about it, just hop back on the diet.
