I do. I don't eat a lot of fruit, but I do eat a lot of veggies, and I add a small amount of beans/lentils/sweet potatoes to breakfast and lunch to fill me with fiber. I find that I actually forget about eating sometimes and only eat three meals a day with the largest meal being breakfast. Although I'm a maintainer, I find this helps for those times when I've indulged and need to get back on track.

I do encourage you to eat more veggies. Because of gluten-intolerance, I've cut out bread entirely with no problems. If you wanted to reduce the carbs further, instead of the bagel thin, you could make scrambled eggs with 1 whole egg and 3 whites plus add a bunch of veggies. Then if fruit's not an issue for you, add some fruit for 0 points. Very satisfying, IMHO.

Good luck! My DD has PCOS, is about 80 lbs. overweight and is probably gluten-intolerant. She's working hard at reducing the carbs and gluten and finds she has more energy and less digestive issues.
