My suggestion is to use the calorie range that SP has set - it may be that you need to start a bit higher and work down rather than take a sudden drop in calories.
Secondly if you don't like a food, why would you eat it? I eat a myriad of fruit and veges - and firmly believe in eating a couple rainbows a day :-) I just choose whatever I want out of those colours. My 17yr old grandson doesn't like carrot unless it is raw. I often give him orange capsicum, or make a coleslaw with the carrot grated in, and some finely chopped red capsicum, too. If I make a casserole I puree the carrot (even for a pizza) and add tomato paste to the mix as well.
Finally, just as SP recommends baby steps, I would also recommend using baby steps with your nutrition. Sudden changes to WHAT you eat could set you up for falling off the wagon. You need to enjoy your food (just not too much - LOL!) and you need to eat sensibly. By eating carrots when you don't like them puts what you are doing into the 'diet' mentality. Diets don't work. People feel really restricted and/or get very bored, so fall off the wagon - a lot don't pick themselves up after :-(
