I agree, it's as bad as the studies where the "high fat diet" consists primarily of processed/hydrogenated vegetable oils (as in the case of the high-fat rat chow used in many animal studies).
We are very insistent around here that there's a difference between soybean oil and butter; why do we not grasp that there's a world of difference between isolated fructose and an apple?
I realize there are reasons to eat a ketogenic diet and that some people also find that limiting carbs helps control binge eating, but that does not make all carbohydrates inherently bad. It means that for some conditions a VLC diet may be therapeutic.
I can go on a massive cheese binge if there's brie in the house but can easily stop eating after one small potato or a small quantity of rice. That doesn't make the fat in the cheese a problem--it means that *I* have a problem with overeating certain types of high-fat soft cheese (and I am not the only person with this issue). And I can tell you that it's very, very easy to eat massively over your TDEE when you down a couple of hundred grams of brie, and that despite it being very low carb, that much cheese can still quite easily make one fat.
