You are right, this is very very off. 50-70% fat is my thing as my energy intake must be lowish. I eat over 2g/kg protein.
If I needed as many calories as, say, my SO (male, not very tall but taller, more muscular though mostly just his legs, active), I would need way higher fat and if I wanted to do as little protein as the first point says, it would be even higher.
I actually used his numbers (I know his normal calorie need, he quickly loses or gain if he is off), I got over 80% fat for 2g/kg protein and over 85% for 1.5.
And he doesn’t even have some huge energy need. He is just somewhat active with some nice metabolism. I easily eat WAY more than him and if I had one of my good active days from the past, it could have been just right (if I hadn’t this fat on me to lose, at least).
So it’s obviously off. Anyway, it’s perfectly fine to eat a decent amount of meat every day even if one is a petite woman…
IDK what “well formulated” is but if the 3 point describes that for keto, I never ever want to go close to it. It’s a horrible idea for many of us.
I never understand these fixed percentages. It’s extremely INDIVIDUAL. What they want from someone with some high energy need? (I ignore point 1 here, just focus on macro percentages.) Protein toxicity or heavy starvation where muscle loss is immense, keto or not? Or they only think of small but chubby girls wanting to lose fat? Ones who don’t need much protein as I am a short chubby woman myself, the 2nd point is just me but the other two just won’t happen (3 is okay in my rare super meaty carni days but I don’t see why I should avoid dairy and my beloved eggs, honestly).
It’s important to learn to ignore such things (well if it’s about our eating. I so totally can’t resist to comment about them) and do what works for us. We can’t grab numbers and attack it to everyone’s ideal or even remotely healthy keto. Not even with such ranges. If we say, 50-95% fat, that helps but not very informative
I like 1-2g/kg protein as a guide (prefer 1.5-2 myself, to be safe. anyway, we have little carbs and it may give us way more enjoyable food), I can’t help my own body find 2g/kg way too low so I am higher. It’s still fine but we shouldn’t go too high as that’s wasteful, not healthy, and so on. But if we don’t feel problems, it’s probably okay.
So few people can reach protein toxicity. We really shouldn’t worry about protein when it’s just perfect (or not but still good) if we follow our desires. (I am one who can overeat protein, I should be a tad careful - but it’s wastefulness level, not the unhealthy one. Even I automatically stop when I go very high, I never ever felt bad because of eating too much protein. If someone is more sensitive or don’t have this break, they may be careful but they are rare as far as I know.)
And what if we truly need way more than 1.5g/kg protein? And it definitely very easily can be more than 1… I can’t imagine why I need about 2.4g/kg as a minimum (I almost never go below and my average is way higher but still not super high like 4g/kg or something :)) but I do. If I stay below during the day, I suddenly find myself munching protein at 1am and I don’t like that. But going over that limit works so why would I try to fix it?
I don’t even need to track! Just eat whatever I want, as much as I feel I need and want. And IF it doesn’t work, tweak it. But not following other people’s theories. It’s my own individual case.
