Is fear of protein the new fear of fat?

Is fear of protein the new fear of fat? How much protein should you eat on a low-carb or keto diet? Can you run into problems by restricting it to achieve greater ketone readings? And what effect does ketosis have on different types of body fat?

Ben Bikman is a keto researcher with some intriguing points of view on these subjects, and here he discusses this with Kim Gajraj of Team Diet Doctor.

Watch a part of the interview above, where Bikman talks about how protein has a different effect on a keto diet, compared to on a standard American diet (transcript). The full interview is available (with captions and transcript) with a free trial or membership:

    I'm confused should we eat 3 times a day? Should we fast how many times a week? How long to fast? How many calories per meal is confusing If I eat too much protein, the videos state (you may have eaten too much protein) but if I am not losing weight then what am I doing wrong? Help!
