There is absolutely nothing wrong with being in ketosis, I have been for years, I eat zero carbs and the even energy delivery is fantastic, no ups and downs and running out of energy like when burning carbohydrates.. Workouts are great too as I always workout in the fasted state. Give it a try but expect 6 to 8 weeks to become fully keto adapted.
This is exactly right! Ketogenic is a high fat, mod protein minimal carb diet. Excess protein will throw you out of ketosis.
