For my fellow keto followers
While your on, do you still ensure you hit a high amount of protein? Example I'm following the evolutionary diet for bulking(don't think it's enough cals) but it says on my carb up days drop protein to like 15% which would be like 120g but I would think that's bad because of being "on". Am I wrong?

not sure about the plan you are following.. and not entirely sure what your asking.. but I think you are asking if I think 120 g of protein will be ok during your carb up days...?
the answer is yes you will be fine. just stick to the plan and everything will be laid out. KISS=keep it simple stoopid*** iForce Nutrition Anabolic Minion Member ***

The purpose of a "refeed" is to fill your glycogen levels by consuming a lot of carbs. Your macros on refeed days should be carb dominate for several reasons.
1. Fat is very calorie dense (9 cals per gram) and slows digestion of anything else taken in.
a. By dropping fat, glycogen is better refilled and it gives you more room for your daily calorie total. if you consume the same amount of food on refeed days as you do a normal day and then add your carbload, you will succeed in restoring glycogen, but will also greatly risk spill over/fat storage.
2. Keto is muscle sparring. Protein is very important, but in terms of keto anything over 1 gram per pound of lean mass isn't really necessary. and once again, cals from protein are dropped on refeed days to focus on carbs and glycogen replenishment and to avoid spill over.
Just about any cyclical diet that has refeeds will have lower fat/protein macros on refeed days.
one day out of the week with 120 g protein rather then 200 g protein is not going to do any harm.

keep in mind too that during keto if you eat too much protein your body will convert it to glycogen anyhow... so just know that you will be fine and not lose any mass during this phase.
also those fat cals should be from the right sources during that reefed and are quite important to insulin sensitivity so just stick to the drill. I wouldn't do anything more, or you will push the spill over.
