I think the fight against 'carbs' is a bit of a red herring. We all know not to eat sugar, highly processed grains, etc, but as you know 'carbs' exist in nearly all food. And they're not necessarily bad. But there's a difference between eating a slice of bread and eating an orange. Both have plenty of carbs, but you get much more nutrition from the fruit. So don't eat empty foods. Skip bread, rice, potatoes, and eat fruits and veggies instead.
Personally, I find eating 40%protein/30%carbohydrates/30%fat keeps me satiated. I eat lots of meat, but that's what works for me.
