nutrition question

Hello- have been aware of the whole fat adaptive approach for a while now but always dismissed it as, to be frank, i love carbs way too much to want to strive towards a LCHF diet. anyway, after some sports science testing it actually turns out that i am a super efficient fat burner anyway- so i don't need to change myself into one! however, having now discovered this, i wonder if there is a need to tweak my diet slightly- i eat a lot of carbs, but maybe i could cut them down- would this benefit me? or not, as i burn fat efficiently anyway? anyone have any experience of actually being fat adapted naturally as all the articles i keep finding online are how to get there in the first place.... cheers!
