How much protein will kick you out of ketosis?

Ketogenic diets call for 20% of calories for protein. I am 255 lbs and looking to start keto soon. Does that equate to about 120 grams of protein? Also, considering that I will be lifting weights for the majority of the week, isn't 20% protein too little? Thanks!

Does it burn more body fat than high carb

I know that it doesn't burn more calories and the number on the scale will be the same as any cut But will Keto (0-20g carbs) help you to burn more body fat. As in Bob and Kevin have the same body comp and lose 40lbs. Bob did Keto will his weight loss be more noticeable?
