As for the long term sustainability of keto, most people I know who are on it stay on it for an extended period of time, ~6 months then go off it and then back on it. I don't think I know anyone that's strictly keto for years and years.
Like you said, each to their own and everyone responds to different diets differently so even though I've heard a lot of good things about keto and I have a few personal friends who are on it and they are getting great results from it, it might not work for me for other reasons. But I do think based on the evidence, it is worth exploring especially if the goal is to shred fat.
I would never consider the diet regimen I try to follow keto. It's just lean protein (egg whites, chx, tuna, turkey, protein shakes) and the healthy fats I mentioned. As for carbs just post workout, maybe a tad pre workout and maybe some in the morning like some oatmeal.
That is a shredding diet. How long have you been doing that? I get carbs every meal and do my sugars around my workout when I'm serious, otherwise I just get my complete cookie for breakfast as the only added sugar food for the entire day. When I cut, I do no sugar, period.
It's my rule to stick by but I have enough cheat days and extra carbs on some days that it's just kind of a general rule for me to try an start with.
