Default Do I need Carbs to Lose Weight??

I did pretty good on the initial Phase 1; I lost 9 pounds. Well the last week and a half has been nothing. I don't know if it has to do with the fact the 1. I finished my cycle last week then I turned around and started Power90 ( a extenstive workout program). Anyway, The last 4 days I have been so light headed. Do I need carbs for a hard workout? I made chili, I thought the beans would help with the carb problem. I didnt feel light headed today Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance...

Yes, you definitely need the carbs, particularly if you are working out hard. Why would you want to eliminate them? Good carbs will not impede weightloss as long as they are in balance with the rest of your foods.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Yeah, what Ruth says!
Our bodies basically "run" on carbs..It's what we use for energy.
We just want to stick with complex carbs that digest slowly and provide a "steady" source of energy, not the "speed" effect that simple carbs give us.

Here is a good article.
