my question is concerning muscle glycogen, liver glycogen and ketosis.
If your following a targeted ketogenic approach where you consume carbohydrate pre workout and possibly post workout without interrupting ketosis because you are not impacting on liver glycogen much at all would that consistent state of ketosis be harmful for the organs the liver is responsible for fueling or would it not matter from a health standpoint?
in other words: does a constant state of ketosis while efficient for fat burning and insulin management be detrimental long term due to the catabolic nature of ketosis and
the fact it seems unnatural any hunter gatherers would have preferentially ate only starch and only replenished muscle glycogen while keeping liver low at all times.
such a diet does allows for the best of both worlds: to spare muscle, keep muscle glycogen full and burn fat constantly but then I think of hunter gatherers and nature and the whole design seems to fall apart: omitting consumption of the omnipresent fruit and the implication of it resulting in full liver glycogen at most times and thus being out of ketosis seems detrimental to hunter gatherers.
i guess this question could also be basically asking if ketosis is even natural or beneficial to the human body (i need ketosis to basically function it is a godsend to me) but i am just a skeptic because i want to make certain i am doing what is optimal and feel i must be fair in assessing that the reality of this beneficial situation may merely be a relfection of my western diet induced deranged carb metabolism and not a reflection of what is optimal for the human body.
