Sit at a desk doing engineering tasks, go into field about 3-6 times a month, including about 3 hours of driving/trip average. Lift weights and walk: Chest or Shoulders on Monday, Legs on Tuesday, Back on Thursday, and makeup on Saturday. Sometimes skip Saturday. Walk 45-60 minutes on a gravel track normally, but lately doing a measured asphalt lap around a hilly college campus of two miles, shooting for a speed increase.
My diet is mildly controlled calories, 30%/30%/30% macros with 10% wiggle room. Cutting out fried food, maintaining good fiber intake. I have yo-yo'd about 40 pounds four times in my life; trying to come up with a lifestyle that I will stick with, rather than a diet this time.
I love cooked vegetables, but do not care for raw fruit except apples (I am not big on sweets in general). I do eat an occasional banana, or canned peaches or pears. I only eat salads when the weather is 95+ degrees. I have been using flax seed meal, hemp protein, and corn fiber in protein shakes, bowls of oatmeal, etc., to help keep up my fiber intake while eating less.
I was born anemic 61 years ago and develop issues if I go vegetarian too long (two week limit). I feel good eating meat only five times a week but gain weight instead of losing if I try to hit my protein goals combining grains/ legumes/ seeds. As I said, I LOVE cooked vegetables, and the local restaurants apparently add significant amounts of oil, because the calories come from somewhere. Not to mention, I also love casseroles.
I have good control during the work week if I am in the office. But work travel is a big fail. Weekends were minor fails but I realized the problem and have done better on weekends when extended family does not have a reunion, birthday party, etc. But my parents came from large families so...

I only know how from an iPhone:

Go to "More" at bottom of screen.
Select Diet Calendar.
Scroll to bottom of calendar.
Select the icon that looks like a box with an arrow pointing upward from inside (think "outbound" on a desk).
This will open "Export", where you can choose "Full Month", "Detailed Report", etc. This is the part that can be tricky to get what you want. Experiment.
I always have used PDF as the format. Easier to print.
When you click the email button, you need to send it to somewhere you can retrieve it and print it, or send it to your doctor.

The Big Fat Lie - Embracing Fat in your lifestyle.

I'm not on LCHF or Keto, so I'm not the best resource. The only thing I know is legal is meat and cheese. But I can recommend you find the following members:
From371to184, dboza, paularichardson, T8U9, Bluecoaster.
T8U9 always posts some delicious looking food. Also, I was just invited to a new group that is keto. I'll look that up and get back to you.

You've come to the right place. There are a lot of keto fans on this site; just look around and keep posting. Quite a few refer to their method as LCHF, so look for that, too.
