...one of two things happen when I decide to up my carbs...
1) I binge and eat crap and junk (not doing that this time)
2) I suddenly feel okay with doing low carb because I have the option to eat more if I want and low carb is okay.
I'm going to keep going with the basics... healthy food and if most days end up low carb that's fine. Some days may be higher carb, some days may dip into the keto-carb levels, some days may not. I need to take it day by day and see what happens.
The biggest goal is to focus on much more healthy food; especially veggies and some fruit while fitting into my calories and keeping an eye on the macros.
There's really no need to obsess about every day because, as my sister tried to make me see a few weeks ago, every day does NOT have to be the same. They can vary and they will vary and I need to deal with that and accept it.
As long as I keep it mostly healthy, with no cheating and binging, keep losing weight and feeling good I'll be happy.
