    "Toughest" may be too subjective to agree upon. Does that mean lots of rocks and roots, or elevation gain/loss, or loose dogs trying to bite you, or too many ticks/mosquitos? What are you really...

    No, there's no reason to eat high fat to be keto. It's all about carb restriction. And high protein won't throw you out. Misconceptions.
