I just found an awesome keto calculator earlier today. Can't post it on here though. You'll need to google it.

Fat fasting
I started out with 3 days of fat fasting. I happen to adore egg salad and can eat straight cream cheese, so that's what I did. I made egg salad simply floating in mayo, ate 1/4 cup 4-5 times a day (when I was hungry) and drank water and diet Coke with Lime. When the egg salad ran out I switched to 2-oz portions of cream cheese (brick). I've used macadamia nuts in the past but they are an expensive option. There is a section in Atkins' book devoted to the fat fast with ideas and the ratio of fat/protein/carb that is the ideal. I've low-carbed before, but my family is not interested in joining me. :(

I just got a copy of Dana Carpenter's Fat Fast book. It has, I believe 100 recipes. From what I understand, it is 90% fat. I believe, according to Dana, you are eating too much protein.

Truvia is one gram of carb each... you should look for liquid stevia.

And I don't think you're eating enough.
