do you find it hard to maintain the discipline to keep that diet everyday?

Not really,I really look forward to the High Carb days and I will mix it up some as long as it fits into my macros and High, med or low carb day. This is pretty my a guideline for me and i sub in some other complex carbs on High day and swap meats around specially for dinner when I am home. I will cook lean steaks, lean pork chops to switch out the chicken. I like cooked cabbage and a lean steak cubed out and put in a slow cooker with a cup of non-fat beef broth for low carb day.

I also have a cheat day every other Friday to keep me sane.

Today was a low carb day and I did pretty good on it, I was tempted a couple times today. I was out with my family and my wife and Daughter were hungry so I watched them eat at Taco bell (that was rough) then I went to my brother this evening to watch a movie and he ordered 2 large pizza. So I more less got a double wham today with temptation but I pulled through.
