Current Australian health statistics clearly show a decline in collective health. Data shows an increase in blood sugar balance, notably from 1980. The main reason being, increasing consumption of carbohydrate choices, both simple and complex.
The result; 76% of the population over ten years of age are now living over their ideal weight, 'common' lifestyle-induced illness, like; diabetes (2), cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, poor stress management, chronic inflammation, and insomnia are also linked to excessive carbohydrate consumption!
This is 'not' a diet but the practice of eating choices we forgot. The Keto-model works by lowering (excessive) carbohydrates, replacing them with 'good' healthy fats. Total calorie volume is usually less. Keto principles aren't promoting high fat, but a more even and balanced consumption of macronutrients. Finding one's optimum balance of nutrients and calories requires practice.

If you; lose unnecessary weight/fat, now live with seemingly endless mental & physical energy, forget about that annoying joint niggle, now sleep like a baby, and you were nice to the bloke you cut you off, then, you were probably consuming excessive & unnecessary carbohydrates.
I suggest you continue employing 'some' of the principles you have now learnt.
