Figure 5 Lipolysis is stimulated by the action of glucagon, ACTH, and adrenaline. This effect is mediated by cyclic AMP-dependent protein kinase.

Death will occur when there is a failure to replenish fuel stores and insufficient available energy to maintain essential bodily functions. Because fat is the predominant source of energy, the time until death in uncomplicated fasting will depend on the size of the prefasting fat stores. In a normal adult, fat stores will be sufficient to sustain life for approximately 60-70 days. The extent of protein loss is also linked to survival. A loss of more than half of the lean body mass compartment (approximately half of total body protein) is predictive of death.
