Most likely, but if the extra carbs forced you to consume an inadequate amount of protein then you might end up losing more muscle than fat in that case.

In addition, eating only 50g carbs/day will cause a bigger initial drop in water weight, which isn't really important once you carb back up, but it should still be noted.
