Why do you need to lose weight quickly? There is such an obsession with "NOW NOW NOW" that people lose focus of reality. If you are not yet keto-adapted, you're going to be feeling the depressed energy levels characteristic of low carb until you do become keto-adapted. How long that will take, I don't know. I've been gradually shifting towards less and less carbs, but I still recognize the need for them when it comes to running. Now, if you want to run well, up carbs. If you want to lose weight really fast, downgrade carbs. The one may suffer when the other is maximized and vice versa, so pick your highest priority and stick with it. With a primal/paleo diet the weight will drop and you will reach homeostasis eventually, even with higher carbs.
