I find that I have less cravings or "head hunger" when I do lower carb/sugar....If I hit below 150 carbs per day I can achieve that, so I'm not going super low...Back when I was really into LC and ketosis, several years back now, I lost the most weight that way BUT i felt exhausted, dizzy and just weird throughout my body and gradually fell into a higher carb way of eating again....I can control my weight through calorie counting and hard exercise BUT I tend to actually lose if I focus on both calories AND carbs....Some days I have the willpower to do that and some days it's just mentally exhausting...

My weight has stalled out for a very long time...I guess you could call it maintaining...because I haven't figured out a way to win that battle of willpower and impulsively eating...
