Any ideas would be helpful
IMO you are too high in protein and too low in fat. Shoot for about 1-1.5 grams of protein per kg of lean muscle mass, carbs at 20g or less is ok and make the rest up in fat. I like about 60%-80% fat, but it varies. Remember excess protein just gets turned into body fat almost as easily as excess carbs do. Use fitday to work it out. There is absolutely nothing wrong with being in ketosis, I have been for years, I eat zero carbs and the even energy delivery is fantastic, no ups and downs and running out of energy like when burning carbohydrates.. Workouts are great too as I always workout in the fasted state. Give it a try but expect 6 to 8 weeks to become fully keto adapted.
