I thought part of the point of a low-carb diet is to decrease caloric intake by increasing satiety.

Now, I'm not as good, so I'm a little more careful about the fat.

When I was being really good with the carbs and eating a lot of fat, my cholesterol was good (140.) It's still good, but not THAT low.
