Dh and I are post Christmas dieting, haven't got much to lose. Usually do calorie counting but it's such a bore.
I've been reading loads about low carb and I'm really interested in reaching ketosis. I doubt I'd want to do low carb long term but I've read that once you're used to the adjustment you feel great. Thinking clearly, sleeping well.
I feel way better in ketosis, more energy, focus and less hunger and puffy eyes. I've low carbed for 4 years but let things slip over Xmas and fighting to get back in the zone. I stuck to BIWI's boot camp on here/ idiot proof diet pretty much. It's tough for the first few weeks but then I stopped craving carbs and sugar. It's a nightmare if you cheat though, sugar's worse than crack cocaine, once I start it's hard to stop!
