Take it from me... I've done it not long ago... if you go on a diet like this with little to no carbs, your body will make you pay for it sooner or later. You are running about 40grams of carbs from what I can see... not good if you are going to be as active as you say.
I did the low carb dieting for two months trying to cut as much weight as possible (for a weight loss competition). I lost 42lbs in 2 months, but gained 15 of it back within 3 weeks (about 5 of it was water)... only difference in my diet is that I put the carbs back in... my body stored them up hence the weight gain.
Energy will kick you butt too... I did cardio every morning at 5:00AM for 45 min or so, and even though it was tough, it was ok... If you aren't taking enough carbs, your body will turn to the fats you are eating for energy, then if you don't have enough fats coming in, it will turn to your muscle and start eating it up.
I'd say make sure you take in 1gram / lb for carbs, and as long as you are eating complex carbs you will be fine. Also 1.5grams / lb of protein, and get those good fats in there too. Without them, you won't lose bodyfat (I know sounds weird, but it works).
