I’m very new to keto diet. What I understand is I need to have majority of vegetables. Problem I’m having is that the salads consisting of green leafy romaine and spinach with bell peppers and cucumbers (plus avocados) are throwing me over my daily carb intake. I’m using and Olive oil/vinegar homemade dressing.
My salad carbs total 17grams of carbs.
What I do to lower my carbs and what fats can i use top increase because I’m falling short 30grams even after cooking with and eating ghee and coconut oil.
Thank you for your help.
Have you tried exogenous ketones? It takes all the worry out of macros and calories etc… I have been drinking my ketones since March 2017 and loving it! Not only have I lost the 30 lbs of fat I wanted to, but I have seen amazing healing with my thyroid. This on top of incredible energy and focus!

Choosing protein sources higher in inherent fat will help with the fat intake, avoid lean things traditionally used in diets like chicken and tuna.
Peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers are fruits really hence most of the energy in them is carbohydrate. Vegetables that you cook (cauliflower, broccoli, green beans etc) are generally lower in carbs.
