long term very low carbing can lead to too low serotonin levels and increasing carb cravings... I started developing extreme carb cravings with the WOEThat's interesting. The Atkins theory is that carb cravings go down once one is off the insulin roller coaster. That's what I've experienced too.I am now eating about 30-50 carbs a day (guesstimate) and can't say its been long term yet - only since mid April. But I find I don't need much willpower to avoid the stuff that I used to crave like cookies, good bread, pizza, chips, baked potatoes. Now I easily pass by that stuff.I am edging my way into berries and nuts, and the occasional slice of melon, following the Atkins book as I eased up from induction. So far my fat has stayed off. Love it.
