    Week 4: ? That's pretty much exactly my history in each and every detail and I never had to starve or even be hungry!
    180 fasting to eighties.
    300 PP to 115
    200 pounds to 165 - 170
    I have no reason to think I could go back to high-carb without consequences (so not "cured" according to the popular opinion), but then again I have absolutely no desire to do so.
