Protein is rotten fuel, you want more fat than protein to keep from feeling ill and tired.
Since I began my low carb journey, I learned to cherish the fat. I seek out fatty cuts of meat, I eat tons of coconut oil and butter, and I save bacon drippings in a jar in the fridge and dip raw vegetables in it for a snack. The people of the Northern Plains knew long ago the value of fat when they made pemmican as did the nomadic Masai tribes in central Africa. The Inuit of Alaska knew too. They fed the meat to the dogs and ate the fat.
