Default Critique my "keto"

Well, if you've read the posts in my log or in my other threads, I am new to this cutting thing. I've spent the last 8 years of my life training on/off worrying about strength gains and didn't care if I was fat or not. As of now, I am more concerned with getting in physical shape: conditioning, speed, strength, endurance more so than just being strong and fat.

Anyway, I've never in my entire life went on a strict diet. I have hypertension and tachycardia (fast heart rate). The reason for my conditions are both genetic and because I just haven't taken care of myself. With this in mind, I won't be going on an all out professional diet and expensive diet. Just something cheap and not very time consuming.

I've got this so far...

#1- Scrambled eggs, bacon, toast with butter
#2- Spinach leaves, romaine lettuce, boiled eggs, ranch
#3- Tuna, mayonnaise, nuts
#4- Grilled chicken, spinach leaves, romaine lettuce, boiled eggs, ranch, nuts
#5- Whey protein shake, Olive oil, nuts

Do you think this is enough calories? Enough fats? This is basic stuff I everyday anyway. I might not always eat them in this particular order, but I will try to get in all of them. What do you think about this?

Calories: 2,500
Fats: 167.2
Carbs: 28.7
Protein: 157.8

Just addressing the calorie issue, here's my guess:

Meal 1 - 630 calories
Meal 2 - 500 calories
Meal 3 - 470 calories
Meal 4 - 600 calories
Meal 5 - 370 calories

Calorie wise, assuming you are eating average portions, is around 2500 give or take. That looks reasonable.

I estimate 160 grams of protein based on typical portion sizes. That's 640 calories from protein.

Carbs can be up in the air depending of the nature of the dressing you are using. Let's say you have 40-50 grams per day. That's 160-200 calories.

Your diet is 2/3rds fat. A hefty sum. I would like to see you eat a bit more protein. I am no keto expert, but when cutting I don't think it's a good idea to push protein towards the lighter side. i would eat 200 to 220 grams per day and keep the fat high.

One man's opinion.

Buddy you must be pretty good with calorie counting, because I just added all this up on fitday.com and it's almost exactly what you said. I think I'll add two cans of tuna except for one and include two scoops of whey protein instead of one to up the protein intake as you suggested.

Calories: 2,500
Fats: 167.2
Carbs: 28.7
Protein: 157.8
