I don’t think so.
- Most people don’t eat very much protein on keto as I saw and only a few eats enough to get protein toxicity. Unnecessarily much protein may happen but it doesn’t hurt our body yet, it’s just a tad more expensive and in my case, triggers fat overeating due to…
- There are plenty of fat protein sources and they are often quite tasty. It’s no problem to consume only protein sources (if we like that, I mean) as we can choose leaner or fattier items so we can have the right amount of fat and protein, at home or at a restaurant alike, I suppose. It’s problematic if we only like lean protein sources as that hardly will work with keto. And it’s problematic if we have a small energy need, a high protein need and we only like fatty protein and fats (I had that. no wonder I stayed fat, keto or not).
Yeah, sure. My body screams bloody murder anywhere below 130g but even if I focus to stay there (minimizing my protein is an important mission), 200+ g days happen. It’s good there is no problem with that. My body likes that.
And I don’t even eat much meat on carnivore… Just a decent amount with some eggs and dairy.
150g meat for lunch isn’t anything special, I can’t imagine eating a bite of meat in a sea of fat. 46g is SUPER tiny. A little snack that makes me hungry.
I have read those ridiculous numbers myself, of course but I couldn’t come up with ANY woe to match it. I would need to eat plant-based but without all the protein-richer plants… Even plants are too protein rich for that.
And obviously tons of women and men need way, way, way more protein. These fixed numbers are very stupid, they ignore all the wonderful individual differences. But they are super low anyway, I would be in panic thinking about my tiny muscles diminishing… But again, it’s just hunger for me. I must stay above 130g - maybe 100 works on OMAD, it happened before, probably couldn’t do that every day though.
Sorry it’s one of the topics I have a strong opinion and feelings
Why to eat protein powder if you want to eat little protein anyway? It’s so easy to get from normal food. No problem with a good protein powder (or almost any if one can’t get enough protein from normal food for some reason I suppose, it’s an unfortunate thing) but why is it needed?
