That wasn't the distinction I was going for and apparently you missed that the fat content far outweighs the protein content of the diet. 95% fat and protein can be 20% protein and 75% fat or 50% protein and 45% fat. Go look at the groups eating predominantly meat and let me know which you find them to be consuming.

When most people think of eating a low-carb diet, they tend to think of it as being a protein-based one. This is false. All traditional carnivorous diets, whether eaten by animals or humans, are more fat than protein with a ratio of about eighty percent of calories from fat and twenty percent of calories from protein.
Better?

No I get it...

"far outweighs" is silly..there's a huge mix.

In the context of the original question, it's irrelevant .

tons of people thrive on ketogenic diets with super low fat and near zero carbs and do fine, those that get adequate fat do fine, those that dont'; get enough lose a lot of weight and need to eat some fat if they want to stay upright and moving.. but the toxicity thing is BS.
