I've been at a plateau of 24.2% body fat (female, 34yrs, trying to get to 23.5%. Please don't tell me I should be happy with 24.2%...I know my body). To try and revamp things a bit I have increased my fat intake and reduced my carb intake. Previously having around 60g of carb a day (going in and out of ketosis during the day) and now having around 40g.
I am ridiculously hungry (despite probably eating more calories than previously due to the calorie density in fats) and my heart is beating ridiculously fast.
What the hell does that mean??

Not sure about the hunger. Mine always decreases when in ketosis.
re:heart rate: Your electrolytes likely need balancing. Up your sodium intake via sea salt, avocados for potassium and taking a magnesium chelate supplement will help.
