70% fat, 30% protein and less than 5% for carbs.
Thank you. I'm very frustrated. I've tried so many times to drop weight (didn't cheat) and have been unsuccessful....
I do count calories. I have to or I overeat from boredom. I get in about 1300-1600 calories per day.

Even on this wonderful way of eating going from consuming 1000 measly calories to over 2000 you won't lose. You might want to scale back to around 1500 and up those calories gradually.

This is a riot. I did not realize this forum hasn't been active for a year. Oh well.
