Default How long for body to switch over?

I've only recently started low-carb again - about 10 days ago. It's the only way in the past I've been able to loss weight and manage my cravings. But when I went back to eating carbs, I gained it all back plus more.

I read Primal Blueprint this week; I've read several of the other low-carb plans in the past. The one I made work before (10+ years ago) was Sugar-Busters.

How long would you expect it to take for my post-menopausal, 47 yo body to switch over and start actually burning fat full-time? I'm not have any cravings or temptations to go back to starchy carbs, but I'm still kind of tired and my weight hasn't moved yet.
