Is it ok to eat more protein than fat? Will too much protein kick me out of ketosis?

No. On a ketogenic, your main source of energy is fat and should stay within the keto diet macros limits:

  • 60-75% of calories from fat (or even more)

  • 15-30% of calories from protein, and

  • 5-10% of calories from carbs.

If you eat more protein than your body needs it will convert it into glucose via the process known as gluconeogenesis which will put you out of ketosis. You only need enough protein to replace damaged tissue and build new cells, which is much less than most people eat!
