Sounds kind of like what I've been doing. My wife and I have changed our diet to low GI foods at the beginning of July. We're both down about 20 lb from where we started.
I know we've been eating plenty of carbs...we're just picky about the type of carbs we've been eating:
Old Food : New Food
Russet/Red Potatoes : New Potatoes
White Rice : Brown/Basmati Rice
'Regular' Pasta : Whole Wheat Pasta
White/Whole Wheat Bread : Rye Bread
Flour/Corn Tortillas : Low Carb (high fiber) tortillas
Sugar : Splenda
Breakfast Cereal : Steel-Cut Oats
and so on...
In addition to the above, I've been eating plenty of bacon, eggs, turkey, chicken, steak, pork, cheese, yogurt, and lots and lots of fruits, veggies, nuts, & seeds from the local farmers market.
