Depends on how bad the stress and how bad the carbs...
I wouldn't stress on the carbs unless you are sensitive to them - inflammation and/or weight gain. VLC (less than 50 grams carbs a day), and LC (less than 150 grams carbs a day) are for people who have been unable to achieve their optimum health with higher carbs. They are not for everyone.
I won't deny that there are some carb-sensitive people out there and they have to eat that way but first figure out if you are one of them. Not everybody is an Inuit (Eskimo) or has genes like that!
Some people even need some carbs to burn fat. The hubby and I accidentally started to do LC Paleo (got lazy making starches - was in the middle of winter and less produce anyways where I live) and some days of VLC. My hubby's waist didn't budge until we started increasing to some starches (bananas, tubers, and white rice) with every meal - then he dramatically had weight loss! Now keep in mind when we upped the carbs (20-25% calories from carbs) this is still a lower carb then Standard American Diet! We had both had better performance in the gym as well. You have to experiment and see.
Some people feel good in LC/VLC for a month or two and then start to develop new symptoms - dry mucus organs such as the eye, scurvy (wounds not healing properly, etc.). The Jaminets describe this in the Perfect Health Diet book and blog (I like to call Paleo 3.0).
