You were probably not eating enough. I had a similar issue when I first tried vlc along with calorie counting 2 years ago.
I weigh less than I did then & am having no problems, now that I have got things dialed in (eat to hunger, lowish protein, etc.)
Have you read the Eade's posts about restarting vlc? I think I linked to them earlier in the thread.
Everyone's different when it comes to ketosis. I am fine if I stay under 40 gm/day.
If I do a bunch of exercise after eating more carbs, I will burn them and still stay in keto-land.
ETA: you should check out the diet & bod on this keto gal--she is my current inspiration: http://archaeonova.blogspot.com/2013...t-fat-fat.html

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

The hot dogs in the shops around here all have pretty high carbs hence why i thought i ask
I eat grass fed hotdogs. The brand is Applegate - the great organic uncured hotdog I think it's called. A perfect 80% of calories as fat. Despite that I'm sure it isn't great to eat processed meat like this.
But there are virtually no carbs in it.
Yesterday night I took the leftover duck and made an authentic Thai curry. I used lemongrass, galangal, ginger, garlic, shallot, fish sauce, coconut milk, a serrano chile, some cayenne and cumin and coriander seeds fresh ground, and I also put in about a tablespoon of honey, lime juice and a bit of extra salt. Cooked the paste in coconut oil, then added coconut milk and the duck. It was superb. I could have used shrimp paste, I just realized, but I forgot.Garnished with a lot of chopped cilantro and a bit of chopped mint (didn't have basil).
A very high fat, low protein meal, that was absolutely out of this world.
This morning I'm having bacon and I had some butter tea.
