That's a great question. In general, on lower carb days, or anytime your body is operating with blood sugar levels at baseline with insulin in check, your body will choose a combination of the two fuels, fat and glycogen. The brain will continue on with blood sugar, the muscles will burn a combo, and the liver will not store any glycogen but it will release it to keep your blood sugar stabilized to fuel your brain. For this reason, I am not a big fan of a ketogenic diet because it forces your body to use fat exclusively instead of letting it choose what it wants and needs based on your glycogen stores in the liver and muscles.
Also be aware that slower movements such as walking will burn more fat than running which can quickly use up your glycogen stores.
I will suggest that if you are active, don't try to do low carb meals more than once every third meal or third day. This will keep your glycogen levels filled but not over filled. Exercise can really use up your glycogen reserves quick. You don't want to run out of glycogen, just keep it from not getting to low and not filled to the top, or overfilled (which then forces your body to store the excess sugar as fat). Find the balance you need which may be two higher carb meals and one lower carb meal, or two higher carb days followed by one lower carb day. If you are under carbed you will have underarm odor, feel tired, feel sluggish, and your muscles will feel flat in the gym. Look for these signs as a barometer to keep you from going to low in carbs.
All the best to your success on my diet!
