None are lost: Average ejaculate in a male is 5 cc or less. You do not loose any significant amount of nutrients with masturbation. For any activity it is always a good idea to stay well hydrated so drink a glass of water.

Masturbation: Depending on the vigor of your activity, some calories might be expended -- but these would be minimal, and could be quickly replaced by eating food. If you're asking about nutrients in the ejaculate itself, i agree with my colleagues that these are minimal also.

No: Fortunately, evacuation does not cause nutrients to flow out of the body, although it might be a very popular weight loss plan if it did so.
