Where the research seems to be leading is that the proper balance of macronutrients is going to vary widely between individuals, so anyone specifying "x macronutrient is bad" as a blanket statement should just be taken as a quack. There are a few people for whom keto seems to make sense (some diabetics and some people with seizure disorders), and it may work for some other people, but to recommend it to an active fit 16 year old who just wants to lose a small amount of belly fat is one of the stupidest things I've ever seen.
