They all sound like good plans.

I've tried a few different options. For me sticking to around 60 grams of gross carbs, from fruit and vegetables, dairy etc and no grains seems to work well for me. At first I had to be more strict, but I seem to be able to break the rules more often now without ruining my progress.

so . . . . you're like me. I don't eat the RECOMMENDED amount but not a low carber. i'm in between. If i was more diligent, i think i'd probably go with the 30 30 40 diet.

I eat all fruits and vegetables but try to avoid grains in excess. I don't count carbs but I'm usually at 30-40% of my daily intake so I'm not exactly a low carber.

Plenty of things taste as good as being skinny feels. :)

Right now I am doing around 20 grams of carbs just starting week 2. I did weight watchers for a year and lost...10 pounds! I also take Metforim

I am looking for that magic number too! :)

I have done the 2 week time period on South Beach where I hardly had any carbs and I was successful in loosing some weight on that, but I didn't have the strength to workout - I felt lighheaded and exhausted all the time.

Exercise is important to me, so I am trying to figure out how many I should add to still loose weight but have enough energy for my workouts.

I have done no-carbs for two weeks, but that is my limit usually. I will often go low-carb, usually eating only 1 serving of grain a day. It can be hard, but it is the only way I have found that I lose weight effectively.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

I try to eat very little carbs and if I start gaining then I eliminate them for 6 weeks.

for people who decide on low carb or lower carb, how low do you go?

do you still eat some starchy veggies? no grains whatsoever. or do you allow yourself small amounts of carbs?

what do you guys do?
