I really admire your humble and curious vibe. Thanks for your openness and honesty. I hope my information is useful to you.

I get most of my protein from Vega Protein & Greens. The rest comes from tofu and seitan.

I gain muscle by eating about 1.2g protein per pound of body weight per day and taking my carbs and fat on an as-needed basis.

Make sure you're getting sufficient [calcium] (https://www.amazon.com/Freeda-Kosher-Calcium-Phosphate-Powder/dp/B00GZRHVIQ/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1486332590&sr=8-1&keywords=calcium+phosphate), [iodine] (https://www.amazon.com/Kelp-325-natural-iodine-caps/dp/B0009A0LDM/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1486332625&sr=8-1&keywords=now%2Bfoods%2Bkelp&th=1), and [B12] (https://www.amazon.com/Deva-Vegan-Multivitamin-Mineral-Supplement/dp/B00146BLM0/ref=sr_1_4_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1486332657&sr=8-4&keywords=deva+multivitamin).

For bone health, make sure you're getting enough vitamin K. Kale, cabbage, and broccoli all have a lot; alternatively you can [supplement] (https://www.amazon.com/NOW-Foods-Vitamin-100mcg-Vcaps/dp/B0013EJ5QM/ref=sr_1_4_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1486333030&sr=1-4&keywords=vitamin%2Bk2&th=1).

For heart health, make sure you're getting monounsaturated fats (avocados are a good source). These fats should be your primary fat intake, as [replacing saturated fats with monounsaturated fat has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease] (http://www.eatrightpro.org/~/media/eatrightpro%20files/practice/position%20and%20practice%20papers/position%20papers/dietary-fatty-acids-paper-.ashx).

For optimal cardiovascular performance and cognitive longevity, make sure you are getting plenty of Omega 3 fatty acids (between [0.5% and 2% of your total energy intake] (http://www.eatrightpro.org/~/media/eatrightpro%20files/practice/position%20and%20practice%20papers/position%20papers/dietary-fatty-acids-paper-.ashx), which is about 5 grams for me). There are 3 primary types you should be concerned with: ALA, EPA, and DHA. I get my ALA from flaxseeds; chia seeds are also a valuable source but I like the taste of flaxseeds better. For DHA and EPA, I use [these capsules] (https://www.amazon.com/Potent-Vegan-Supplement-Essential-Vitamin/dp/B00QCR00SW/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1486332828&sr=8-1&keywords=amala+vegan+omega+3); there are several competing products that perform the same function on Amazon. These are a sustainable, vegan alternative to fish oil capsules.

Congratulations on the choices you've made so far. :) I hope you find ever-better solutions for improving your health and helping the environment. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

I was "chilled to the bone" for the longest time, but I figured out that I was actually experiencing an iodine deficiency. Most the iodine you get in your diet is going to be from iodized table salt, but your body doesn't uptake sodium as easily on Keto. (conjecture: I think that without pairing the sodium with glucose, you're not absorbing sodium through your stomach, and are only getting sodium absorbed through your lower GI tract, please correct me if I'm mistaken). I started taking Kelp once a day, and within a week I was back to feeling relatively normal.
