    Should I change anything to my current regiment?

    I have been eating ketogenic for a few years off and on. I have had successful weight loss with it and generally feel much better than with a traditional diet.

    Recently, I have stepped up my fitness regiment to change my body composition and lose the remaining weight I have.

    Currently I am 35yrs, 6ft, 233lbs, 31ish% body fat. (Male)

    My seditary TDEE is 2,334 cal/day

    I am doing a PPL routine of weight lifting 6 days a week, not much cardio (10 minutes of elliptical to warm up)

    Right now I am eating 1600 cal/day
    170-200g protein
    Less than 20g carbs
    And fat varies based on how over/under my protein is for the day

    I am eating a high amount of protein to minimize muscle loss and gain some muscle during this cutting phase.

    Im not starving myself, I eat when I am hungry.
    My workouts aren't grueling, I can get through the 8-9 exercises without a problem.

    I am not fat adapted yet. I am on week 2 of strict keto. My blood tested 95mg/dl for glucose and 1.1mmol/L ketones this morning.

    My weight hasn't really moved in the last 2 weeks. 2 lb fluctuations. I won't know if my fat % is changing until I measure again next week.

    Any recommendations for changes or is this okay? My main goal is to lose the remaining fat I have and get down to <20% body fat while retaining/building some muscle.

    1600 calories a day sounds really low…. Normally that’s what I end up at when I finish my cut.

    I can’t imagine how you’re not hungry. Do you sit at a desk all day or something?
