Keto tends to be high in fat and high in calories, the exact opposite of what the doctor wants you to do. Admittedly, it's low carb, but everything else isn't good. Also, Keto tends to work best for short periods anyway. It 'shocks' the body into working a different way. But once your body gets used to it the weight doesn't fall off like it does in the beginning. Also, most Keto dieters only eat once a day. That's not good for bariatric patients! I know a few people who do Keto so I'm basing what I know about it off of them and once they go off the Keto diet... the weight comes back. With interest. It's not worth it.

Depends on what Keto you do. I did a version that was low carb, high Protein, moderate fat. You want your body to burn your fat stores, not the fat you are eating. Plans that advocate for eating fatbombs and pouring cream and coconut oil on everything are the ones you want to avoid. You go into ketosis due to a lack of carbs, not an excess of fat.

So keto for me is a lot closer to a normal healthy diet, lots of vegetables and protein and limited processed carbs. Depends if you want to count macros as well. I never did.

I know a few people who are several years out from surgery and have experimented with it to lose regain. But as someone still early out, as you are, I would say to follow your surgeon's plan.
