Not at all. In fact, it's just like Paleolithic times where they would gorge on all the food they had gathered and then might not eat for a few days after that. Our body were designed to eat like you are

I would address the binges and not worry so much about ketosis. Chances are that you are binging because you are needing some micronutrients. Are you taking Magnesium? Getting enough Zinc? Do you eat liver? Seafood? (more)

You could try getting a food scale and measuring out individual portions of the meat. That might help for you to keep control over exactly what you're eating. Doing this will help if you use a food/nutrition tracker program such as Fitday.
