I have stocked my frigerator with such good low carb foods I'm having trouble getting 20 gr. Is this a big problem? I'm doing good on calories.

eat more veggies, that should give you more carbs, and is helpful and good for you. You should be eating at least 12 carbs just from veggies. As long as you are doing good on veggies, and eating mostly real foods (not processed foods, and not many fake sugars) then you will be just fine!

I see your average daily fiber intake is only about 3 grams. It should be 25 - 30 grams per day. You might want to get your fiber up and drink plenty of water to keep the ketones flushed from your body/kidneys and to help keep the constipation monster away.
