My Wife and I started Keto on January 1st and have both done well. I have lost 75-lbs and considering how to go into maintenance mode.
My biggest concern that I am 59 and disabled and really don't want to put the weight back on. On good days I manage to get out and do some yard work... 2-3 days/week. But arthritis and other problems usually lay me up for the rest of the time.
So...I need to plan for the next time when may not be able to go. I use the Carb Manager App and it has really been a great help. But when I reached my goal weight it switched me to almost 2,000 calories/day! That just seems too high.
Any ideas? All ideas are appreciated.

2000 calories sounds high for sedentary age 59 weight maintenance, but it depends on how big you are. IMO that level of eating would support a weight of 200 lbs.
It doesn't sound like undereating. You could try it for a couple weeks and see if you start to gain. Weight maintenance isn't an exact science, and sometimes the calculated values use activity factors that are unrealistic.
