When you are low carbing for an extended period of time, like in keto or tkd, your body willingly uses stored fat for energy. It can only do this efficiently for so long before a refeed is needed.
For optimum performance this is the case, but the body can derive energy from any nutritional source. It'll work with what it gets, or if it gets nothing it'll start to eat itself.
