In this video, we’re going to talk about your fat to protein ratio on keto. How much fat and protein is ideal on the healthy keto diet? Take a look.
Let’s start by breaking down your daily calorie intake into percentages:
– 70% fat
– 20% protein
– 5% low-glycemic carbohydrates (not including vegetables)
– 5% low-carb vegetables
I encourage people to get plenty of leafy green vegetables, so you get enough vitamins and minerals. You don’t have to count these towards your carbs each day.
When you consume fatty fish, beef, and eggs, the fat to protein ratio is roughly 1:1—not in calories, but in weight. In calories, it’s typically 2:1. So fats are about twice as many calories as proteins.
Protein has four calories per gram, while fat has nine calories per gram.
If you are trying to lose weight, you’re better off cutting out the extra fats in your diet. This doesn’t mean that you should consume low-fat foods such as lean beef. Instead, cut out the extras like MCT oil, butter in your morning coffee (bulletproof coffee), and keto bombs.
The leaner the protein, the higher the insulin response. This is why you should avoid whey protein and lean meats.
Age, physical activity, metabolism, and preexisting health issues are all variables that you have to take into account when you’re dieting. The right amount of fat for your diet on keto will primarily depend on these factors.
If you have gut issues, avoid nuts, coconut oil, seed oils, dairy, butter, avocado, and MCT oil. Instead, focus on animal fats. If you don’t have gut issues, these foods are in the clear.
By total weight, 400-600 grams a day is ideal for your protein intake.
