MindTech Pill Eating too little or too much protein on a ketogenic diet (or any diet) can lead to dangerous or unwanted results. The basic macro intake you will be aiming for on the keto diet is approximately 70 to 75 percent of your calorie intake from fat, somewhere between 20-25 percent from protein, and then 5 to 10 percent of your daily calories will come from carbs. This combined with the weight loss derived from a ketogenic diet, is sure to vastly improve cardiovascular health and function. The reason is that protein increases insulin and can be converted to glucose through a process called gluconeogenesis, hence, inhibiting ketosis.
