A few months? Wow you were better than I was Bre! lol For 10 years of my life I never had a level below 8 and its supposed to be about a 4. I’ve never had problems with having too little phe and now I am extremely strict on my diet. I barely eat anything not “low-pro”. There isn’t a set amount of time that the body would start to break down muscle into phe. As long as he is eating the body won’t break down muscle just as it would in a, i guess you would say, normal person. I think you have nothing to worry about. As of right now your soon is already allowed more than double what I can eat and I’m 18. I can only have 225mg/day and I’ve never had a problem.
