I needed to make my point clearer. Never once did I say that what she was doing isn't working for her, and never once did I say she should stop what she's doing and do carb cycling. I just laid out a sample for the hell of it because most people on this site are very unfamiliar with it, and maybe someone else would be interested in trying it. This info is for the masses and it references the OP. I personally don't care what method she uses. There are lots of people on this site that have trouble with caloric restriction, so my posts are for them.
