The trick to staying in ketosis is not only to avoid all obvious sources of carbohydrate, but also to be careful with your protein intake. If you eat large amounts of meat, eggs and the like, the excess protein will be converted into glucose in the body. This compromises optimal ketosis.
The question I get most often is how to increase fat and still keep protein calories in check. When you're keeping track of your daily macros you may find your fat needs a boost. So, I invented Thunder Balls. It not only helps me increase my fat when needed, but also tastes soooo delicious. It’s like having a crisp piece of dark chocolate that melts in your mouth. Let’s face it, we miss our occasional sweet treats so this is a winner!
For one Thunder Ball:

They freeze quick; it only takes about two minutes. Pop them out and store in a ziplock freezer bag, in the freezer.
