100 carbs a day (25 every 4 hours)

Is anyone else doing this? My parents lost a lot on this and were able to maintain. I was having between 60 and 70 carbs for a few days and lost some weight and then switched BACK to Intermittent Fasting (which helped me lose a good deal and feel good last spring) because my energy levels were really low and I was returning to work. I did experience the fat adaptation stage (Keto-advocated) and that felt good, but I think 100 is more DO-ABLE long-term (for me). I am going to continue doing Intermittent Fasting; it has numerous benefits! Thanks!

was this plan something someone else thought up? is there a book on it?

please share more info?

doing 100 carbs a day, with 100 g protein is what got me started 5 years ago. so this is intriguing to me, if there's a book to help me.

i'm forever looking for THE plan to make me more content. this is not an easy battle to wage no matter which side of the scale we're on.

To us low-carbers, 100 grams of carbs per day seems really high, but to each her own. If your method works for you, it works.

As for low energy levels, what works for me is one Tbsp. apple cider vinegar in a juice glass full of water up to three times a day. It's been recommended in several books I've read so I tried it and it definitely works.
