Does fat intake have to be bigger than proton intake while in keto? Today I ate 130 grams of fat and 170 grams of protien. Is this bad? Do I need more fat than protien?

130*9 = 1170 cal
170*4 = 680 cal
total = 1850 cal

1170/1850 = 63% cal from fat
37% cal from protein (assuming NO carbs in this calculation)

this sounds ok to me. you might even go up to 70/30 or 80/20....but i wouldn't go lower.

I think you wanna go by grams, not calories. With a 1 to 1 ratio. So if you eat 130 grams of fat, eat 130 grams of protien.

that's just a quick way of calculating 70/30
