What is the average amount of protein everyone is eating everyday? I want to start this diet and would appreciate any input people that have been on it for awhile have to say. Thanks,

Don't know the average, but according to a trainer I met,I needed to do 115 grams a day along with 30 min of cardio and 30 or more of strength training.

I've seen suggested numbers ranging from .5g/lb of lean body weight to 1.5g/pound of bodyweight. The best numbers are only a rough estimate, since every person is different, and your needs change depending on your activity level and other things, which are not possible to accurately estimate.

Apparantly if Protein intake is more than 100grms daily it can have an adverse effect and knock you out of Ketosis if the carbs are kept under 20 mgs as well as a low 60-90 is considered low intake... 100-150mgs Normal range
