Default Breaking down LBM Loss?

I understand that calorie balance is king. A net caloric deficit results in weight loss. That weight loss is composed of both fat loss and LBM loss. What ratio of loss occurs is a matter of partitioning (and individual genetics, etc.).

Now I'm interested in LBM loss in particular. Let's say we're on a net deficit. Assume that we have also pee'd off all of excess water bloat and that our body measurements/weight have stabilized into consistent readings. Small changes occuring to our body from week to week are indicating some degree of LBM loss.

What is the breakdown of LBM loss specifically? Is LBM loss really cause for panic and are we really losing that much "muscle"?

I remember reading in UD2.0 that skeletal muscle is composed of "only about 25% protein, and about 70% water."
