Default Low Carb & Exercise

I've done low carb previously and had really good results. My weight loss was almost clockwork -- a couple of pounds a week and NO hunger! That's the greatest part. I recently buckled down and went low carb again (keeping myself in ketosis) but the losses haven't been so steady. The only thing different for me this time is that I'm exercising - 3 days running (30 min) and 2 days strength training/week. I didn't exercise at all on the other attempts at low carb. Is anyone else exercising and having success? I don't want to give up my activities, but I'm wondering if I should try carb cycling to have more success.

I thought I'd try it out the next few days. I made wonderful cottage cheese/egg white/oatmeal pancakes for breakfast today -- probably 30 carbs for this meal. I'll go low carb the rest of the day and see if the scale moves. I might try alternating high carb, low carb. Anyone else doing this? I read about the plan in Chris Powell's book.

Losing again since January 2012
