  1. Doc where do you find bacon without sugar? is there a particular brand you use? Even the slab bacon at my local deli counter has sugar in the ingredients but 0 carbs.
    Thanks josi

  2. Hey guys!
    Been doing ketogenic lifestyle for about 3 years I’m 23 5’7 and workout every other day 5×5 protocol and a full time student as well. If my goal is to lose fat, currently I weigh 170 I checked my lean mass on a bod pod here at the university 143.7lb! If I were to be in a deficit how much protein would I need to be intaking to atleast maintain muscle tissue!? Is it .8 gram per lean mass? Or lower? And should the keto ratio of 75-80% ratio should always be kept regardless of caloric intake and or protein intake?

    • If you’re working out that much you may need to increased protein to 1.2-1.5 g per kg of lean body mass. And, yes, 75-80% of calories should be from fat.
