I would recommend trying backwards Atkins (my own invented phrase). Try limiting carbs to a higher level per day - check for wt loss - if none - lower the count until wt begines to drop. I know folks that started with 100 per day (lots more than most folks eat and way too high I think - but I think they used total not net carbs).

Also, maybe try a higher low limit like 40 or 50 and include some healthier carbs like fruits.

I think the insomnia is probably from the escalating energy most people have or your body's difficulty adjusting to life without carbs. Maybe cut caffeine or try to get more exercise in the day to burn off extra energy.
