Sort of, yes, but nothing is that easy. For me personally it took a few months of constant weight gain and unstoppable appetite (post low-carb) until the body experienced enough accompanied by six months of slow (but smart) weight loss doing the opposite thing. Unfurtunatly it’s been the situation with a great many other ex-lowcarbers I’ve are exposed to through my blog.
I suppose Matt Stone has the “english equivalent” although unique of my ideas in many ways. So, I’ve no basic idea if long-term low-carb can be tackled by carbing up short-term. I have not chosen that path myself, so I wouldn’t know very well what to think. I know however that a low-carb “guru” over here suggests carbing up when weight loss stalls, which is cool since most low-carbers here are really rigorous pretty.
But, in the end it’s all calories from fat in, calories out. Whatever diet you can eat to satiety leading to spontaneous long-term calorie limitation works (whether it’s not too low in calories from fat that is). Obviously, it’s the same thing with long-term energy expenditure. Every day it’ll burn off a lot of calories and vice versa In the event that you feel like being hyper-active.
This will be a continuous process you’ll need to learn. Portion control at restaurants is very complicated, especially nowadays when restaurants provide extra-large servings. It is manageable definitely, though, so don’t worry. I still like to eat out every once in awhile, but I’m in a position to keep my food portion sizes in order. Eat until you are satisfied and take the rest to go – don’t overeat merely to finish the portion! Be sure you go heavy on the greens and ask for veggies as a side always.
