performance: losing 1.3 lb a week

Alright so IF was too slow for me. I'm sticking to traditional bulk/cut cycles. The end goal: achieve an aesthetic body. Basically, I wanna look awesome.

The gym plan is a five day split. Cardio is kept to a minimum, maybe an hour once a week at low intensity (heart rate ~120bpm). This is to reduce any impact on muscle cannibalization, and also because cardio is really, really boring.

I really, really dislike the term toned and the usage for 'toning'. You want your muscles to look better? You have to grow them. You want them to show through more? You have to lose fat. These two things are actually at odds in terms of input/output approach. To put on muscle you need to eat at a caloric surplus and lift some weights. To lose fat you need to eat at a caloric deficit.

So if you just want your (existing) muscle to show more you're going to have to lose some of the fat around it while still making use of your muscle (resistance exercise). Caloric deficit time. If low carb helps you get there more power to you.

But if you want the same 'volume' of body and replace the fat with muscle, you're going to have to take a two-stage approach. First is to eat a surplus and start working out. Then get on a deficit and continue the workout.

Looking for keto ppl
The only way to lose is to reduce your caloric intake. A lot of people who hop on keto love the initial weight loss but don't realize it's mostly due to losing water weight. You can stick with keto if you like what you're eating, you just need to eat less of it.

Recording Daily Food Correctly
If you want to be exact you can measure it out on a food scale, then you can enter it precisely in grams.

Calorie Calculation
Are you sure you're not overestimating your activity level? I would use completely sedentary as a baseline and start with that. If week to week you're losing more than you think you should you can up your calories.
