Default Liver Dumps Revisited

What is your opinion on liver dumps?

20 years ago, I was taught that liver dumps were a bad thing and I should try to take steps to avoid them.

But, now I'm not so sure that it is entirely a bad thing.

If liver dump is happening isn't that an indication that my carb intake has depleted or is being depleted? While I do try to stay in ketosis, an indication that I'm moving towards ketosis( ie a liver dump) is a good thing to a degree, correct?

Finally, i recognize that I'm asking for an opinion that is in the context of my goals for LCHF and ketosis. I agree that for anyone following a SAD, a liver dump just complicates things for them.

It could be a sign of that, or it could be s a sign that you BG is dropping. Not necessarily low, but lower than your new normal. Your body is pretty happy where ever it is, and when your BG starts going lower than your new normal, its signalling the liver to give it some sugar. That glycogen could be converted from carbs in your diet or even excess protein, so that may be a part of your diuet to examine, is your protein intake too high/
