What you've said more or less contradicts the notion entirely that the body burns muscle at all, when calories carbs are not available.
Either you haven't read very much or you are reading from very poor sources. Most of the body can use fat as a fuel source. The CNS is the big exception. If the body catabolized muscle as often as you have been lead to believe humans wouldn't have made it as a species.
