I started out with 100+ lbs to lose, I've lost 60 lbs. Right now pretty low carb is working for me. I've been listening to my body, it is happier low carb. I notice when I eat too many veg it causes cravings. I do a wee bit of carb cycling. I recommend listening to what healthy choice sounds good to you and ignore unhealthy cravings. I eat potatoes and coconut milk ice cream as indulgences and I'm still losing. AND I don't feel deprived. I would feel that way if I didn't have potatoes and chocolate.
It takes a while to figure out what's gonna work for you, everybody's different. Try different combos and see what you feel best at
Sausage or bacon and eggs
steak and creamed spinach
hard boiled eggs and pepperoni sticks
taco salad and roasted potatoes
kombucha and beef jerky
salad from work with ranch and chicken strips
leftovers (chicken francese or roast beef, green beans with cream and butter)
1/4 - 1/2 cup coconut milk ice cream
