Extremes: I believe it is better for most to eat nearly everything in moderation instead of going on an extreme diet. I don't see how getting ketosis, which may reduce your appetite, can be good for the body. As for the high fat, too much saturated fat is likely harmful because it promotes inflammation. If you must, try unsaturated fat.
