Assuming that an adult male requires 2000 calories of energy per day, one needs to consume about 100 gm of proteins every day based on 60:20:20 break up. The problem with veg diet is that even the foods supposedly high in proteins, like lentils/pulses,nuts, legumes etc. have much higher or almost equal carb content. So where do vegetarian LCHFers get their protein from? Is whey protein a good option? Please share your experiences/thoughts on this.
