Data are presented on the effects of short intermittent fasts on bone calcification, food utilization and tissue composition. No significant differences were found between the percentage ash of femurs of males versus females or control versus fasted animals. No significant differences were found between the control and fasted animals with respect to food utilization but the males made uniformly better use of their food than the females. Intermittent periods of fasting had no effect on the composition of liver and muscle tissues.
