As for cutting Carbs then slowly reintroducing, I don't see the point.
If you had a problem with weigh gain and needed to cut some out, to stop them converting to Fat, then obviously cut them, and assuming it's just a normal caloric intake, not excessive, but the Carb ratio is too high, then no need to cut calories, just replace the cut Carbs with Fat, so the energy deficeit must be met with Fat, but calories stay as is.
Because of how Carbs are necessary, going below 30%, to me is not something I'd suggest.
If you are not gaining weight, then cutting Carbs needn't be the case. The methodology I mentioned in relation to that scenario could be used, if you were trying to squeeze a bit more definition out, but because Carbs initiate an insulin spike, beneficial for protein synthesis, cutting may hinder muscle promotion, although some say Fibre intake can adversely affect GH production.
As I say though, unless you are really looking for the ripped look, or are perhaps overcarbing, causing weight gain, leave Carbs as is, the energy, Blood Sugar maintenance and Brain fuel they provide, are worthwhile. Plus Carb sources depending on what they are, contain things like Antioxidents and Cholesterol lowering substances like Beta-Glucan and Omega 3.

How often do you weigh yourself? Maybe you would be better off weighing less often - I know I have to get on the scale once a week to keep my motivation up, but some people are better going every two weeks or once a month, then you see bigger changes. Just a suggestion.
And it feels good to "feel thinner", doesn't it
