Good for you! I too have a plan to lose some weight before I tackle the AT next spring. I am going the opposite tack and am including high amounts of fat and protein and very low carbohydrates. No bread, sugar substitute, Lots of Water, and care when it comes to which vegetables I include in my meal plans. I started ten days ago and was 284 but today I am 273. Each day the scale moves down. Very encouraging.
When I get on the trail and energy requirements increase dramatically I will adjust to meet the need. "Big Red" began the AT when he weighed 345 and lost as he hiked but I read someone's thought that the better shape one is in when they begin the less expensive the trail will be for there will be less need for stops, the trail will be completed faster, clothing size will not be dramatically changed, etc., and so I decided to start now to lose weight rather than next April.
Probably any plan to change eating habits will work as long as you are consistent.
