Default Will eating lower carbs on carbload result in better fat loss results?

I started my first carbup and I was wondering what the benefits of those last 200g were.

I'm 155lbs LBM, so my target is around 1100g carbs. Initially didn't realize how much sugar/faton some of the things I had planned to eat (bagels/flatbread) so I'm close to those thresholds, but not uncomfortably so. Right now, after my first meal today, I'm at

584g C/ 79g sucrose/ 28g fat, leaving me about 500/20/10 csf

So I'd probably have to down a ton of maltodextrin shakes to hit 1100 without exceeding the fat/sugar ratios unless I go to the store to buy some more refined carbs today. Led to the question what that last 100/200g really did, and if cutting it out would have any negative effects outside of a weaker power workout. The caloric deficit would still contribute to faster fat loss right?

Not at all. You'd just be screwing yourself over by not doing carb load right.

Follow the book or just do RFL.
Half-way measures don't get very far. You can only do one thing well at a time. Trying to gain muscle while losing fat will result in failure.

Get to 10% bodyfat first while lifting weights heavy 3x a week with reduced volume. Two weeks maintenance. Bulk up slowly (1 lb weight gain per week max), focus on getting stronger, measure body composition changes often.

i had good results playing with the numbers. my lean body mass is right around 140 and i do 1000 refeeds normally. Last cycle of ud2 i started at 1000 and bumped it to 1100 then 1050 and 1025 and back to 1000. You can play with it but i still lost fast raising it up. I wouldn't go much lower if you don't need to. Judge your saturday workout on power movements and strength on it and use a caliper to see if you really are losing fat. i posted some pics of my results right under here in my own thread.
