    Well, this thread derailed way out of its original purpose and unfortunately turned out to be a thread about carb wars.

    Every individual has her/his justifications for adapting their dietary preferences. I am a person who enjoys finer things in life and a major part of that is high quality food at vast amounts. Low Carb diet does the job for me.

    If you are a pro athlete, you should have a dietary plan prepared by a sports nutritionist and follow that. As @carnivroar suggested at multiple occasions, Speaking of the majority of the forum members; we are not elite athletes and let's just face the fact, we will never make part of the pro peloton.

    We are ordinary people and having a 15 lbs bike does not change that fact and make us elite athletes overnight. At least for me.

    I will not be checking this thread from now on so I would like to thank everyone who contributed in one way or another.

    I have been doing low-carb more or less for the past 5 years and even when I was super strict (like I am now), I was never, ever able to get below a certain body fat percentage. Here is what I think. Everyone's body has a point of equilibrium, which in my case is "a little fat" - maybe yours is too. Low-carb alows me to maintain this state even if I overeat a lot, which is great. However, I think that in order to shed these last few pounds, I will need to cut back on calories in order to create a deficit and force my body to use stored body fat.

    Also, I did 35 miles on Friday. Not a lot but I'm stepping it up and I didn't even get exhausted. Wasn't sore the next day either.

    The low carb/almost no carb really leans me out, but I try to stick with an eat anything (including my favorite, cheesecake) in moderation. That being said fat is not fat there are different types. I have done much reading on it, but there is "brown" fat I think it is called which tends to stick around the mid section.
