In this video, Dr. Berg clarifies the confusion on the amounts of protein on a Ketogenic Diet. It is recommended to take 3-6 ounces of protein per meal when you’re doing keto (Ketogenic Diet) and intermittent fasting. Protein as the actual weight of the whole food itself and not the grams of protein within the meat, chicken or fish. The amount of protein in foods are not the same as the actual weight of the food. And how much protein you need varies depending on your size, metabolism, age, stress, body problems, and the ability to digest protein.
