I keep track on fitday.com all the food I eat. Since I'm eating double protein allotments my daily intake is around 500-800kcal a day.
I think the thing that throws people off is that once you're in ketosis you're burning 3000+ kcal a day from your fat stores. I have enough energy to bike 30km a day and do full 2 hour workouts, just not at 100% intensity, more like 70-80%.
Also, along with the B6/B12 injections I take a multivitamin, and extra iron, and micro potassium twice a day to make sure I'm not deficient.
