I think Sarah gave you great advice. I know one thing for me I have found is that I have to watch the fat content as well - at first I couldn't get enough fat, then I started getting too much.

Through reserach I have found 50-60% should be fat (atkins carb tracker will track this for you) - if i'm over 55%, I loose just a little and over 58% I gain. So for me along with the carbs I monitor my fat% and keep it between 50-55%. I do also keep my calories between 1200-1500. Under 1200 and I don't loose - much over 1500 I don't loose either. You have to see what works best for you because it does vary - my husband looses no matter even if is fat conent is a little higher than mine and his calories don't seem to matter lol That's a man for ya though! Lucky ducks!
