I am counting calories for a second day today. I also keep visual journal of the food I etc. I take photo of my meal and then post it in the spreadsheet....visually its very helpful not only to see my daily menu, but also make a mental note what are the portions look like in my plate etc.
Low carb seems hard to maintain, my body definitely needs a good amount of carbs for energy. If it doesn't stick for you, it's good you're trying something else. I count calories and I find that as long as I eat sensibly and exercise, drink lots of water and get enough sleep, I usually do okay.
