This was actually a tip from a trainer, who also set up diets for his customers.

One thing is: As a student I'm often rather broke so in that sort of situations I lose track of my diet because bread and pasta is often much cheaper dan fish/vegetables/meat etc.
But I do not switch carbs for "unhealthy high fat" food. Just delicious meat dishes and salads. Which has given me quite some trouble with exercising.. It sometimes happend that I got dizzy during training.
Yea, if I were to eat carbs again I swear I would bloat up quickly. I haven't check it out but my med student friend/ body builder told me carbs carry more water weight.

You might want to listen to:

He talks about vitamins that you easily have a deficit of while on low carb so you get dizzy easier. He does intense training like four hour bike rides while on low carb and he doesn't get dizzy anymore.
