I think low carb diets can be useful for a short time for some people
I did it in 2009 and felt mentally foggy so I do not prefer it and have lost fine on 1 gram of carb per pound of bodyweight. i would much rather feel mentally alert and lose it. It is trial and error if it works stick with it or use it from time to time.

Stick to less than 100g/day carbs. Best way is to start down at 20g (virtually zero). For one week.
Then on the weekend relax and eat freely, then the next week pulse up, and add 30g carbs/day (50g) total.
Repeat this process until you feel comfortable.
Also, none of your carbs should be from grains. There are more than enough in fruits and vegetables.
Overall Macro Ratio, somewhere around... 35-40/20/45-40 (P/C/F) ?

MAssive amount of carbs? I thought people normally do 40/40/20.

I do 40/40/20
I think sluggy is talking about a "low carb" diet.
These work for some people, I personally find that 40/40/20 works fine for me if I keep my carbs complex and before 2pm or after big workout.
I will eat carbs in the evening if I have done deadlifting or swimming/cycling in the evening or im just totally ****ed the next day.

I can't really help too much man. FWIW, I get 40/40/20 for bulking. I'm not carb sensitive.

I think carb sensitivity is a bit overrated.
The fad of totally separating fats and carbs contributed to this. When you do so, you have to pack a lot of carbs into the P+C meal which increases the glycemic load. No wonder people were feeling 'sensitive.'
If you stick to whole food carbs (ie moderate GI or less) and combined with a protein and a bit of fat then the carb rush will be all but eliminated.
Every meal for me is 30/50/20. I get no cravings and no crashes.
