Thanks, Leo. The calorie counter on ************ says I should have 1500 calories a day- but 200g carbs and something like 45g fat. Clearly that isn't going to work.

I love ketosis.

I haven't tested it to be sure- but I think the smell of carbs throws me out of ketosis :annoyed:. I have to stay pretty close to induction levels.
