Yes, that seems to be the consensus, although it seems that many here are also worried about 1) long-term effects of keto and 2) building strength and increasing overall fitness in keto. Admittedly, both of those would be difficult (you've got experience at least with number 1) but I think they could be done; IF approached correctly.

Now I'm off to watch that vid.
