If you're interested in some tinkering and taking advantage of the benefits of glycogen, you can try cyclic low carb (CLC). You eat basically a ketogenic diet and then carb up every so often. I know an MMA guy who claims it works for him, but I didn't feel like it made much difference for me personally. Worth trying though. It definitely works, I just felt like it was more work than I wanted for a small improvement in my numbers. I think it took a whopping 10 seconds off my 500 yard swim, which is significant since I swim it typically within a 2-3 second margin, but 10 seconds still isn't much for having to eat no carb most of the days.
