you still need ATP (energy for muscle contraction) and some sugar and carbohydrates for the glycolysis to
carry these aminos to yourmuscles by pitching your insuline high.
During a fasting periode you have no input of proteins or other source of energy, so the energy for these
processes will be taken from your muscle volume of your body! and it turns into the catabolic stadium
(it means you burn your muscles down for energy).

it’s underpowered(your body is able to remember and to prepare fot the next fasting periode) so at the end you
