Everybody is different. Do what works for you and don't do what doesn't work. This may take some trial and error. A lot of people advocate avoiding carbs to lose weight, but my opinion is that carbs are not the enemy. Just eat good ones, like fruits, veggies, and whole grains. I did not avoid carbs and I did lose weight. By the same token, I didn't eat 90% of calories from carbs, and I didn't eat a lot of sugar or white flour, either.
