I was having long plateaus on just doing 20 carbs or less a day. I can stick to this better because I know I can have the higher carb fruits and veggies and that forth day.
Hope this helps,
Yeah, I will, on occasion, take a day where I eat more carbs than allowed, but on those days I will switch to calorie counting and I'll make myself stay under 1800 calories. So, I'm not denying myself forever. I just make sure I count the calories when I have a "treat."
