I doubt that's from dehydration since I pee a few times in the night no matter what. OTOH if I do recover the glycogen, neither my morning weight nor muscle percent will have changed. It helps to have paid attention to one of these scales for many years. Whether that's glycogen being measured or simply the water content of the glycogen really doesn't matter. It does get measured.
How do you know how much glycogen youve synthesized and why would it vary?
