I'm also vlc at the moment. My understanding is that low carb will only help you decrease calories without feeling deprived. Remember, you still need a calorie deficit to lose body fat.
It depends on how the higher carbs affect your appetite. If they cause you to start eating more calories than you need, then best to keep them low. I get carb cravings from eating carbs, so I need to keep mine lowish. You'll just have to see how you feel. Everyone is different.
