    @carol anne - you need to read up on low carb high fat diets - plenty of people on this forum are losing weight this way, and it's an excellent diet for diabetics, because it also helps reduce high blood glucose levels. It's carbohydrates not fat that are the problem, and skimmed milk is full of carbohydrates, so isn't appropriate for this type of diet.
    @Inkey-2008 :
    It's possible to in ketosis and not lose weight - it's not of itself a weight loss diet - you still do need to take care of total calories. I know because I'm currently in this same position!
    Check with one of the keto specific nutritional calculators, e.g. http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/DietMakeupCalc.php or http://www.ruled.me/keto-calculator/, and see how they compare with what MFP is telling you. Jenny Ruhl's mini book advertised on the phlaunt calculator page may also be helpful.
    Maybe ditch the milk too for lactose free or something like Alpro unsweetened almond milk, and check carefully for hidden sugars in the mayo and coleslaw if they're not homemade.
