215 grams of protein 28%
225 grams of fat 67%
40 grams of carbs 5%
total calories will be 3025 - 3100
i will be running 2 week phases through end of year then regroup. day 1 - 13 i will be following the above protocol. on the evening of day 13 and all of day 14 i will carb up. carbs will be about 550 grams all the while keeping the protein the same and dropping the fat down to about 10% of total calories.
thanks for any and all input

When I ran keto, I ran protein much higher than fat. Just my personal preference in terms of doing it.

I have not tried to higher fat content route - just my personal take that it would be more beneficial to take in very high protein. I'm sure others have differing opinions on it.

Problem with upping protein too much is that some of it will get converted to glucose. Have suffecient protein but up the fat so that you body thinks of it as its primary energy source. Once it becomes effecient at burning fat you can start to reduce the fat intake and your body will easily burn stored as a preferred source of energy.

You can go up to 50grams and still stay in keto (source Lyle Mcdonald's books) He advises not dropping below this very often unless protein is high.
Protein at 1-2grams Lean body mass. If you are dropping below 50grams 1.5-2grams. The more intense the training the closer you go to the 2 grams per LBM. You do not need extra protein for your additional fat mass. (source Lyle Mcdonald)
Carb ups based upon how lean you are and your intensity in almost all cases.
Let us all see what your diet looks in terms of food. I mean if your eating all fatty hamburger and cheese your not doing the best you can do here.
Foods that I like for Keto:
Nuts and nut butters
Lean ground beef (yes still lean)
Fish (though I dont eat fish)
fish oil in high doses
Protein powders (even on higher carb my diet main protein source is protein powder)
I like to keep it really lean. In moderation you can include fatty cheeses and milks and fattier meats. I have done keto on a bad diet and been eh and felt like junk. Then I have used more mono and poly fats than anything and I feel better and respond better. Also your body will make better use of the carbs you do take in.
From nuts and nut butters
from dairy (if you use it but minimal and preferably post workout)
Green veggies (will take a lot to hit your limit)
These should be your main carbs. I advise taking any carbs that are not green veggies after workout.
Also take a fiber supplement 3x a day.
