it is mostly water, we lose more because we are using more for fuel, when sleeping a bodybuilders metabolism is still high when compared to an inactiive persons, its still burning calories when you sleep, yes some could be muscle but i believe it would take over a month to lose a full lb of muscle, just make sure you have protein before bed and first thing upon waking to make sure your body is as anabolic as possible
