I'm feeling lost on where to start

Hi everyone , I'm super new to this app, I have been on keto for almost 2 months and lost 16lbs. My eating habits have been again changed by dietician and doctors recommendation but I'm still feeling a little lost. I've reached out to their staff but haven't heard back yet. I have been given a max of 1500 calories a day , low carb no carb restrictions and no more than 25-30 grams of protein daily (I'm clarifying if this is daily or per meal just waiting for clarification. ) I am struggling to find ways to accomplish this, due to lack of knowledge and beginner experience. The app states my macros need to equal 100% which means I'd have to compensate with high fats but I'm not sure if this is going to hinder my ability to lose weight. Any help , tips or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance :)

    That does not seem like enough protein. How many grams does MFP calculate for you? It's the protein that helps me not feel hungry all the time.

    104 grams of protein 69 grams of fat and 206 grams of carbs . Carbs definitely need to be low or non existent. I appreciate the feed back. I can understand 15- 25 per meal. But I'm hoping I can get more answers from the dietician.

    Why do carbs need to be low? Do you have a medical condition?

    I would definitely wait for their call back. I'm not sure why they would want you to be both low carb and low protein...? Seems odd.

    Maybe the dietitian can help you set up your goals on here when you are in the office. Be sure to ask!
