    Hi Dr. Patrick, I had a question. With prolonged fasts, how is consuming amino acids different from FMD? Dont you consume aminos through food on FMD? Also, is it at all possible for aminos and anaerobic exercise during a fast to sort of cancel each other out, and allow for autophagy to continue?

        On the FMD you limit yourself to 16g of PLANT based protein per day. Notice it’s not just a limit to how much protein but the source of that protein. Taking those amenos while on the FMD would probably be the worst thing you could do exercise or no exercise they would just stop autophagy.
