No. There is no one way to do things. Some just reduce carbs, some rotate carbs, etc.

Will my body still use the carbs as energy instead of fat?
The body uses everything for energy. It's more about calories in/out as long as you're not a bloated, insulin sensitive, fat old 40-something sot with diabetes like me.

The biggest thing you should do is slowly back down your cals from maintenance. Start with 300 under and run that for 2 weeks. Try cutting out 75 grams of carbs per day.

Don't make a big jump down in calories. This is a mistake too many people make, and then they wonder why they feel so weak.
