I think as long as glycogen stores are kept full there should be no issue with building muscle and muscle memory is giving me good strong gain so far. Bare in mind that my diet isn't "ketogenic". I may or may not be in ketosis I have no idea but that is not the point. The meat I am eating is typically 10-15% fat where as traditional ketogenic diets are 50-70% fat. I'm eating upwards of 400g of protein a day so there is likely a lot of gluconeogenesis going on to restore and add glycogen

I'll start dumping nutrition information in between training.
Full disclosure - I'm an IT shift worker doing a critical role for Australia's largest bank. I do two day shifts followed by two night shifts. Then I get 4 days off. These shifts are 12 hours long - 7 until 7.
Because it's an 8 day roster the week doesn't line up exactly. So I have four training days. I can't train on the day shifts. I can train during the day when I'm on night shift, however if that happens to be the weekend I do not train as I'll be with my family. The days off I'll train. So for this week I am working Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun. Because the night shifts are over the weekend I'll be doing all my training Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs

But eating 400 grams of carbs means you probably have no chance of being in ketosis. 150 g of protein on a PSMF keeps me out of ketosis for the most part.
But maybe you will prove some of that wrong with this experiment.

I don't believe that is the case, especially not in physiological amounts.
Even the bodybuilders that use insulin, they are using it to return their blood glucose to normal levels which is elevated due to HGH use.

Not saying it will have a big short term effect. Long term it may induce some insulin resistance.

Without the ability to gain muscle in the complete absence of plants or carbohydrate we would not have survived. I might not be able to explain it correctly but we are the most adaptable animals in existence
I actually think the bigger more important question will be "How much fat will be gained"

Now obviously I can't say that they never ate things that were not from an animal (that would be wrong) - but I definitely can say that humans would not be able to survive if they could not survive eating only meat
There is also not one single vitamin or mineral that humans need that cannot be found in meat
I'll try and find some good sources for you... There is plenty but I don't want to link up some time.com article - I want to find the real deal for you

I have the information here for you but it's in PDF form. Please let me know how I can upload this or I can email it

You don't need to be that careful about nutrition though on this diet. It's actually pretty easy. Steak, liver and eggs have a complete nutritional profile on their own

Plants and vegetation would also be seasonal. There would be months at a time almost exclusively meat unless reserves were had.

People be nitpicking about seasoning.. lolol.. yes perhaps carnivore isn't the right term.. predat0r diet would be more apt.. as a predat0r would eat the eggs of prey if found.. or whatever helped them to survive..
