First off, it is hard to put on a sizeable amount of muscle or fat in a month, but you can put on a lot of water weight if you like. As for putting on muscle mass, you will need to eat a lot, and exercise in a way that stimulates hypertrophy. ... (more)

no doubt you will lose fat, and the more you move during the fast the more you lose go for it, experiment! I personally have done an 8day and a 9day fast and it is difficult. I do one day fasts but not long fasts anymore.
