Remeber also, that there is no such thing as Essential Carbs. There are however, essential proteins (amino acids) and essential fats.
These can more than make up for the calories you will not be eating in the form of carbs, and will keep your blood glucose levels at a more consistent level throughout the day.
I went paleo/ carb back loading in march to celebrate my 46th birthday and have not looked back. My energy / mood and tolerance for stupidity levels have all leveled off ; ) I also have gotten fairly shredded as a wicked but nice side effect !
The one thing that I do do differently is not to injest and cards other than those found in vegetables until after 5pm. This seems to work
very well with mood and temperament.
Good luck and keep aging well...
