Colingwood, I think you are oversimplifying. Glucose is the body's primary food source but it can use alternative food sources. People do lose weight on high carb diets. Cutting out carbs tends to cut out a lot of calories for many people as well as reduce their glucose stores (additional weight loss).

March, I eat high carb but I tend to limit my refined carbs. I don't see a lot of veggies in your diet either. For breakfast, how about pumpkin chia pudding

For lunch, you could try an egg wrap with collards or romaine lettuce. Or perhaps a salad with chopped egg.

For dinner, you could try spaghetti squash as a substitute for the pasta. For me, I tend to eat a bean dish like spicy Ethiopian style lentils over a bed of cooked greens or Chana masala over slightly smashed cauliflower.
