60 grams a day?
Are there any of you EFGT followers that have been able to consistently lose weight on 60 grams of carbs a day? That seems too good to be true.

Not me. I do think if someone was extremely active they could enjoy 60 grams of carbs.
Of course, this would be only basically veggies and fruits..If someone avoided the grains, this might work.

I'm working on keeping my carbs higher (shooting for 40 g right now) while eliminating grains, too, to see if I can still lose. I'm still eating a slice of toast a day (and not losing), but I'll probably make some rev rolls and try to kick that habit in the next few days. I know that I can't lose if grains are in my diet even on 30 grams a day, much less 60 grams. I know that Dr Mike Eades (of PP) thinks that 60 grams a day is too high for most people to lose weight.

I've lost weight with 60-70 grams of carbs. However I kept my calories low as well around 1200 tops.

I eat less than 100g carb(1500-1700cals) and still lose weight even it's just 1lb a week. I really do eat high fat meals and feel full before I could finish the entire meals.

On the days I am on 60g carb, 1700-2000cals I lose about 1.5- 2.5lbs a week.

I love this diet.

I will lose more weight if I eat more fat , lesser carb when I'm on 1700 cals diet
I will lose less weight if I eat less fat, more carb when I'm on 1700 cal diet.

I don't consistently eat 60g, but 1 or 2 days a week I will get in the 60s and I still lose weight. Most days I am around 30-45g.
