benklay replied to Mechanism's topic in CR Science & TheoryI personally think that temporary suspension of autophagy/catabolic processes during a heavy anabolic/regeneration period that occurs during a post-fast refeed is perfectly natural, and makes a lot of sense. I don't know that there's any concerns there, it just seems like it's the mechanisms acting like I would expect them to. Especially if you're supporting the prolonged fast with nutrients, a la the FMD, and thus avoiding the “Severe undernutrition" in the famine example they referenced, I personally don't think there's much danger there. However, that's just my extrapolation based on the data we have and my understanding of how the mechanisms work.
