I can relate. On my original keto I had to track to keep my carbs in check… I actually could do that, the protein just doesn’t care about tracking. But as I try different approaches, tracking shows if they are working so I find it helpful (and still not a nice way to live, so troublesome, I take breaks from it).
Of course we humans have different experiences and even our belief in the right amounts are different. Protein is easier though as 1-2g/kg for LBM is a very common advice. If my body asked me, I would go for 1.5-2 but I am significantly higher (still not too crazy). Still good as I feel okay with it (and not without)
Even in the case of protein, there is an individual factor. And that is what matters, what your individual body needs. On keto, you basically just have fat and protein to play with and not everyone can handle an overly fatty woe. Too little protein in a sea of fat, nope, isn’t tempting at all. I would make it happen if I needed, like, 4000 kcal a day but as I am, I rather enjoy my moderately fatty food.
And this is important. We should enjoy our food instead of forcing ourselves into some rigid one-size-for-all mold that it’s not even necessarily… Possibly not even remotely good for us.
