Nothing specifically in people; but omental fat is always the last to go.
CR as prescribed does not completely remove body fat.

Don't know about female humans. Female animals typically become
non-reproductive for the duration of CR, beyond a certain point.
Removal of CR restores fertility and there are cases of CR
female mice having babies after *all* of the non-CR controls
were dead (this was done deliberately, to prove the point)
Males (animals and humans) have less interest in sex, but generally
don't lose it entirely.
