After stabilizing your body from the change of dropping all carbs and sugars (and refined foods) you achieve a healthy maintenance balance of macronutrients: fats, protein, carbs, in which you are neither gaining or loosing and are never hungry. Then if you want to loose weight you raise the fats and lower the carbs. Achieving that balance may require calorie restriction at first, but usually doesn't. Because the healthy fats are very satiating, one often finds automatic and unrealized calorie restriction.
That's the preferred way, but of course you will find many here, particularly younger people, who just can't wait 3-4 weeks and jump right in to Very Low Carb or even Ketosis, which is all very hard on your body.
Do read "The Primal Blueprint". Mark also has a 21 day makeover book or program.
