I'm truly astounded that you could come to this conclusion.
You can't just say performance will suffer:
"...unimpaired endurance performance..."
"...without negative effects on strength performance..."
For the sake of those who won't read the study, please be clear and say that anaerobic performance will suffer. I even said in my post that my conclusion is that I wouldn't lose endurance or strength. For someone who seems like they read a lot of these studies, you should know better than to spread misinformation.
I agree with the negative energy balance, but who gives a sh*t? If being in ketosis causes you to eat less calories, keep insulin low to promote fat burn, reduce fat creation, or otherwise promote weight loss, then that's a helluva lot better than your typical caloric reduction of the western diet.
