2 week rapid cut - PSMF?

Hello guys
Same old story , I have undersitmated my body fat and how long it takes to cut from a bad bulk.
Long story short - I go on holiday in just over 2 weeks and sit around 18% body fat.

I am currrently sat at 165lb at 5.8ft tall
I have just dropped my calories to 1900 after losing around 1.5lb per week. I use my fitness pal to track all calories and have been strict.

I am also fasting on a 18-6 window and just started Keto.

Do I continue in this path and accept my fate or is there a more rapid method like PSMF ? For the last two weeks?

I train 3 days a week on powerlifting program and 2 days HITT for cardio

    There is losing overall weight and there is losing body fat to look leaner.  A lot of the weight you lose in two weeks will be water, you're body cannot simply use up enough stored body fat as an energy source in that time.  I've been on a low to zero carb diet for 5 weeks now, plus weights in the morning and 3-4 hours sessions on the road bike, my average weekly weight loss is 2lbs, I cannot do anymore, apart from starving myself.
     
    Even if you did shift a lot more weight, you would find that this would quickly go back on whilst on your holidays.

    I did think this about the weight gain once I got there.

    What is the best approach for the next two weeks ?

    I totally got my calculations wrong on what body fat I was at and how much I needed to loose.

    Why not keep going as you are?  My body usually takes 4 weeks before I started seeing some actual physical changes, but my weight does drop before that point, this is why I always think I lose water weight before anything else.
