    Strict Ketogenic Diet not working. Please Help!

    Hi Guys,
    I’ve started a strict ketogenic diet but am struggling to get it to work. The diet supposedly says that if you eat high amounts of fat ,the body will produce large amounts of ketones and begin to use fat for energy and won’t deposit the fat
    But that’s not happening, instead my body is storing the fat and burning muscle and i've balooned up in terms of fat%
    I don’t understand what I am doing wrong, can you guys shed some input?
    I started 3 weeks ago at 185 pounds, 17% body fat, my goal is to drop to 8% body fat.After 3 weeks I am at 170 pounds, 23% body fat which means, apart from water weight, I lost about 2/3rds muscle and 1/3rd fat.I’ve actually had way better results on an atkins/south beach diet and this diet is way tougher to follow! I am using 2 digital scales to measure body fat but you can tell just by looking at my arms and stomach that the majority of loss is muscle because there's not much fat loss.
    My keto intermittent fasting consists of:
    meal 1: 12 noon
    1 4oz filet mignon marinated in salt, pepper (20g fat, 30g protein)
    1 Keto shake ( 1.5 cups unsweetened almost milk (4g fat, 2g protein), 1.5 tablespoons Omega-3-6-9’s (21g fat) , 3 tablespoons of unsweetened peanut butter (20g fat, 9g protein, 7g carbs),
    Vanilla, cocoa powder, stevia)
    Meal 2: 6pm-8pm
    1 8oz salmon filet (no sugar added, 20g fat, 30g protein)
    1 Keto shake (same as above)
    The total intake per day is approximately.
    1500 calories consisting of about 100g fat, 25g carbs, 70g protein
    It is approximately a 70% fat diet.
    I lift weights and do spinning 4x a week so on those days my net caloric intake is only about 800 calories. Other days it’s the whole 1500.
    I’m 6’2”, 40 yrs old, my daily burn is about 2200 cals. I take vitamins, creatine, l-glutamine and other supplements.
    I’m hardly eating any carbs. I’m super strict, I don’t go out, drink alcohol or anything like that. Just seems like the fat shakes are causing me to balloon up in weight.
    I bought a ketone meter which checks my blood ketones with ketone strips but the numbers are all over the place if you check it in the morning it says around 3.0 but if you check it a few hours after a workout it is over 6.0 (ketoacidosis) , somtimes it shows 1.5 or less which would show that I'm not in ketosis I'm not sure how that could be possible on this diet ...The only thing I can tell is that maybe i'm in ketoacidosis because the numbers are often 5 or 6 or 7. But i'm just following the standard Keto diet of 70% fat and i don't have any symptoms of ketoacidosis. Not sure how to drop the ketone numbers and get them to stabilize around 1.5 to 3 like they're supposed to be. Seems like it's a safer bet to stay in ketoacidosis then to get knocked out of Keto.
    Thanks for your help.

    How are you measuring your fat percentage to guarantee you're losing that much muscle? Your ketone numbers are pretty high, so I find it hard to believe you're burning muscle.

    So you're only eating lunch and dinner?
