Default Switching to Low Calorie

I lost 80 pounds on the low carb diet and then went off and gained half back and i've unsuccessfully been trying low calorie(i'll either maintain or binge eat and gain) for three years. Has anyone successfully made this switch? What did you do? Any advice? I'm about to go back to low carb to lose the weight again...

I have used My Fitness Pal on the past and successfully lost 70 pounds on it. Unfortunately I stooped using it and gained a good bit of it back, so I have started on the weight loss journey again. What I have found with the low calorie diet is I am more successful when I keep my carb intake right between 100 and 120.

I'm doing a combo. I do south beach diet and I calorie count. Too much of a good thing can still be too many calories, but it's a healthy way of living - lean protein, veggies, whole grains, etc Loads of recipes online. Then I weigh and measure and calorie count. The calorie counting for me was in conjunction of learning portion sizes.
