You're spending too much time in mTOR. Try working out fasted, and don't refeed until 1hr after workouts... maybe add in some sprints or HIIT. Lower the protein back down and increase the fat in its place.

What happens when you become fat adapted and you happen to eat to many carbs one day and it knocks you out of ketosis but you still remain in a calorie deficit?
