    Keto question

    I am knew to keto and also need a little help figuring it out. I have been doing standard keto for 3 weeks but only dropped like 1% body fat. I train 6 days a week which include 2 cardio days also work very active job. My macros are set as follows:
    Fat 1036cal 115g
    Protein 478cal 120g
    Carbs 80cal 20g
    Total 1595
    I am 121, 5'5 and have 20.8% body fat. I just did my first carb up day, which i am not even sure I needed to do but since I was not seeing much progress I decided to try. So My questions is Am i doing this right? Does 1% fat loss for 3 weeks normal? I forgot to mention that I have been following the diet striclky and been in ketosis the entire time, I have been testing with sticks. If anybody is willing to advice me that will be great. I am not sure if i am eating too much or not enough or what?

    First thing to jump out to me is your protein is way too high. Increase the fat and decrease the protein. It's weird at first eating so much fat, but it's second nature for me now. I eat 150-200+g per day.

    Eating too much protein will knock you out of ketosis. Purchase a PrecisionXtra glucometer from Amazon and you can test your ketone and blood glucose lvels yourself after eating meals.
