That's right, it's whatever works for you
As long as you don't feel you're depriving yourself. I definitely couldn't do that. And I'll admit, there's no way I could live without pasta and potatoes. Rice? Meh, you can have it. And I really don't eat potatoes all that often. Not white potatoes, anyway. I eat a lot of sweet potatoes. But live without pasta? Eeeek! I'd end up in a straight jacket!
