High GI fruit.: The liver normally stores about 350-400 calories of glycogen. The window for repleting it is actually up to 4 hours, but is most efficiently within an hour. Fruit high glycemic indices are most efficiently converted from glucose to glycogen (i.e. Dried fruit, though they are calorie dense). My vote is for a cup of grapes: 27.3 g carb, barely 50 calories, fun to eat. ...Read more
Sure: There are excellent diets designed for all different types of storage disorders. However, very few people are well versed in what these diets consist of.

Be good 2your liver: Insulin causes skeletal muscle and fat cells to absorb blood glucose. This glucose often comes from the liver after glycogenolysis. This is the breakdown of glycogens, which are the sugars your liver stores in long chains to use later. the release of blood sugar from these glycogen chains is done via the enzyme glycogen phosphorylase. ...Read more
Long build up: I'm not a geneticist; and, there are good references on this subject easily available on the net. However, a quick answer is long build-up. The disease is viewed as constitutional (born-in) and not a later development of a "sudden mutation". If you are really interested, do your homework on the subject by looking at NIH and other sites. ...Read more

Carbo Bonking: The treatment is to restore the glycogen back into the muscle. The fastest, safest way is eat foods with a high glycemic index. These foods will break down quickly, causing an increase in blood glucose. The glucose will then be returned to the muscle for storage in the form of glycogen. What are these foods you ask? Cereals, white bread, rice and most snacks just to name a few. ...Read more
I workout verry intensely 4 hours a day, i started feeling low energy , is there a condition where the glycogen stores are depleted? Recovery time?
Be careful!: It's very hard to deplete glycogen stores (unless you are on a zero carbohydrate suicidal diet) extreme physical stress may, however, cause a release of myoglobin (muscle protein) into the blood, and myoglobin is very toxic to the kidneys; it may cause acute renal failure, and one of it's signs is -- very low energy. Be careful! ...Read more
