I just googled this Grey Sheet Plan.

Looks MIGHTY restrictive. I know I wouldn't get through a single day eating like that. Not a day. Atkins is also not for me. It eliminates waaaaay too many delicious, healthy, low calorie foods.

I have a problem with carbs, but only CERTAIN carbs. I eat lots of them, but mostly the ones found in veggies and fruits and I tend to eat waaaaay more veggies than fruits.

I'm not sure what you've tried in the past, but I know for me, the *sure* way to lose weight is to find a plan you can consistently STICK with. You can't lose the weight, if you can't stick with the plan. So finding something that you CAN stick to and that you are WILLING to stick to is ESSENTIAL.

So if this seems like something that you'd like to incorporate into your life, you can go ahead and give it a try.

I personally LOVE calorie counting combined with a *mostly* whole foods diet, eliminating the sugar, flour, rice, pasta, etc... I was/am willing to do this indefinitely (though now that I'm in maintenance I've added in a few of the *off* items on rare occasions in small quantities under controlled circumstances) and therefore I've stuck with it, thus freeing me up to lose the weight and keep it off.

IMO, you need to take a really hard look at your self and decide what you are willing to stick to long term. It can be a little of this plan and a little of that plan. Tweaking it and customizing it to your lifestyle.
