Okay, so I know there are a lot of you out there who advocate low carb as the only option combined with paleo for fat loss, but I also know a lot of you think low carb-Paleos are doing themselves a disfavor. I am looking to lose about 15 pounds again... the same 15 I lost going Paleo but recently gained from too many days of slipping sigh. I am now going back to strict Paleo now to lose those 15 lbs again, but originally when I lost those 15 lbs, I was VLC, and lethargic half the time. I want to try to lose those same pounds again but without that experience... but am wondering if that's what's necessary?
My menu the first time I lost weight was 4-5 omelette for breakfast, and a steak salad with avocado or something for dinner totaling out to somewhere around 1200 calories and >30 carbs. Can I still have adequate fat loss results on a similar 1200 calorie menu but with the addition of say 2 potatoes at dinner? :(
What have been your experiences? Have you lost weight with the presence of carbs? I just want to know what your honest opinions are because I know the VLC works... but it's miserable. I don't wanna test this out for a month, and find out it doesn't work, and lose that month of weight loss :/ Thank you!!
