Default starvation biochem HELP!!!!!

after 2 weeks where ketone body starts to be the major fuel for brain.
there is still some gluconeogenesis happening. I know muscle protein is the major source for gluconoegenesis but does this apply same for 2 weeks of starvation?
or will glycerol, from fat, be the major source for gluconeogenesis in 2 weeks of starvation.

please help
