    People regularly confuse fat oxidation with fat loss. Its absolutely true that high fat diets burn more fat (fat oxidation) but they also store more fat, which is the component that isn't discussed.
    But burn which fat? Body fat (adipose tissue) or all of that fat you are eating?

    Some people like to ignore that when you eat keto your body burns more fat, because it's burning all the fat you're eating.

    Dietary.

    Just like if you were on a high carb diet, than fat oxidation would be lower and carb oxidation would increase.

    Exactly. That makes sense. Some folks out there see "burn more fat" and wrongly interpret (wishful thinking?) it as body fat.

    There's a guy on the bike forum singing this tune. Flavor your morning coffee with butter, to burn fat all day. Watch it for the devil's carbs, they'll pull you to hell.

    230% sounds like the ratio of calories in fat to calories in carbs.

    It may be just a load of hooey in click-bait.

    Maybe look at the work of Lyle McDonald as a far better source of an actual scientific explanation of how the ketogenic diet works?

    I like Lyle McDonald. He's written a book about keto, and here's an article: https://bodyrecomposition.com/fat-loss/comparing-the-diets-part-4.html/
