I don't know your goals but VLC doesn't work for me - I must to have carbs to maintain or I literally can't keep the weight on and my muscle growth stalls. I also do not subscribe to "fat will solve everything" way of thinking, it doesn't work for me - tried and felt horrid, so after much tinkering have managed to find a good spot.
Sweet potato with breakfast in addition to lean protein, veg, fruit. Dinner is usually tuber with veg, lean protein. Fruit before bed. A sheep milk yogurt. Snacks will consist of jerky, avocado, chopped veg, maybe a hard boiled egg. I cut out nuts, dried coconut, and dried fruit except for the occasional dried fig or date. Fats that I use for cooking/dress salads with a very light hand: avocado/mac/butter/tallow/duck, et al.
I can't tell you want to do as every body is different, but IMO play with amounts and ratios, add some carbs in. Squash, beets, carrots - mmm.. roast them! I eat a_lot and am now satisfied with my current combos. But I still definitely tinker, I think it's fun, and am happily fed. EDIT --> Forgot to add that dark chocolate is in there somewhere :)
Note: I'm 5'7 and 126ish, low body fat, muscular, CrossFit and lift 4 days a week. AKA: lean, strong, fast, and mean :) (not really mean but it sounds good)
