Keto primarily involves two macros; fats and carbs. You have to lower the carb intake so that you can reach the point where the body doesn’t use glucose as the primary fuel source, while also increasing the fat threshold to the point where the body can use ketones as the primary fuel source.
Research suggests that the lowest fat/highest carb you can have while getting the full benefits of a Keto diet are above 75% fat, and under 10% carbs. When you factor that all in, that only leaves you with roughly 15% protein.
We break the mold slightly here to make sure you’re getting everything you need, and then some! We allow up to 20% protein, and down to 70% fat in our Keto meals to allow for more menu variety and flexibility.
This is all to say, the Keto diet naturally calls for a small percentage of protein. We do our very best to feed your belly according to Keto, while also feeding your eyes.
