As I have been low-carbing for some time, have lost 25lbs, and am a tortoise at losing weight, I am also going to keep an eye on my calorie intake to see if it is relevant when I keep the carbs below 25g per day. It's not normally sensible to weigh every morning, but necessary to draw a reasonably accurate conclusion from the experiment.
