A ketogenic diet will give you both the best possible glycemic control but also full athletic potential, after a few weeks "adaptation" period is complete.

Quote:
According to a 2004 paper published in the journal Nutrition & Metabolism by Stephen D. Phinney, two previous studies undertaken by the author --- one with fellow researchers at the University of Vermont in 1980 and another at MIT in 1983 --- demonstrated that there was a lag in aerobic performance during the two-week period in which subjects adapted to the ketogenic diet, after which time both peak aerobic power and sub-maximal endurance performance were fully restored. There was no change in VO2 max, a term used to indicate the measured capacity of an individual to transport and use oxygen during exercise. Both results were unexpected, because ketogenic diets should negatively impact your physical performance. There was only one major difference between the two studies: One used untrained subjects, while the other used highly trained athletes.

Impaired physical performance is a common but not obligate result of a low carbohydrate diet. Lessons from traditional Inuit culture indicate that time for adaptation, optimized sodium and potassium nutriture, and constraint of protein to 1525 % of daily energy expenditure allow unimpaired endurance performance despite nutritional ketosis.

Body building while on a LCHF diet is a double edged sword. Body builders consistantly use LCHF diets to do thier cut, (lose fat). But while in the muscle building stage, carbs are consumed along Creatine, Glutamine to make muscles bigger. They strive for large insulin releases and carbs to provide a surplus of energy to the muscles. I would think you would have to start out slow, balancing your carb consumption/insulin/resistance training, so as not to go hypo.

Bodybuilding in general can provide lots of information in regards to insulin release, insulin uptake, carb loads, etc. There is a pretty big knowledge base associated with bodybuilding.
