they cant control carbs.

what i mean is like u can either do no carbs and be fine or high carbs and be fine but theres no middle?

its weird , its like carbs are my downfall. i can watch protein cause its eay to watch(eat it and good types) and fats is well its either i eat it or i dont...damn fats and carbs are just like the same. if i dont eat carbs then i eat pretty much as much as i want of fat and if i do eat carbs i eat a very good amount but my fat is like super low...

what does that tell me?? i have no control??? i just switch energy sources when my cravings hit? damn...i dont have control..cause normaly ill eat low carbs for 2-3 days then high carbs for a couple days before i start to feel guilty i go back to low carbs.....

it depends what u mean by "high carbs" how many grams roughly do u intake?

what ur describing sometimes happens to me, when i miss a meal or eat something "unhealthy" (like if im at a friend's house) and i try to compensate for a high-carb meal with low-fat/carb foods later on.

i think if u have access to good foods and can get ur six meals or so a day, eating every 2-3 hours, u wont feel really hungry at any point of the day so ull be able to control these cravings.

could be that the middle ground is too much insulin to maintain blood sugar levels

well its not like meals more like days. and like carbs its either like a diet like 50c/40p/10f or 0c/60p/40f something like this. i dont know the exact amount. i dont know if like i cant handle moderation, like say a moderate meal is like some brown rice, chicken breast and like avacadoes or something. i just cant do it. i start like thinking no i should eat carbs and fats togeather and blah blah blah. but like both diets have valid points. u know fiber and health wise vs hormonal respounce and fatty acid utilization(sp). i just dont know why i cant stick to either one for a longer peroid. and no way moderate. its just like i feel its all or nothin

i know, but i just hate that i cant control this. and like a control freak and it bugs the hell out of me that i cant manipulate my "dosages" the way i want.

well, if your eating high carbs / low fat, or high fat / low carbs, you should be fine.
