Okay, first of all... That's not your picture on your posts, is it? From reading your SparkPage, I had the impression that you're a small-ish woman.
Second, is your nutrition tracker accurate for the last week or so? If it is, and you're a 5'3" woman, you're eating about half as many calories as you need to stay healthy, and you are likely to get very sick. If you're the young man in the picture, then you're starving yourself to death and you should go to a hospital and ask for emergency help from an eating disorder specialist. Your tracker shows that you're eating less than the people in concentration camps got.
You have to eat more than what's in your tracker. That's the first thing, before you worry about carbs. A woman needs an absolute minimum of 1200 calories per day. Below that, you will not get enough calcium, vitamins, protein, etc to keep yourself from getting sick. You'll damage your bones, your muscles, and possibly your heart. (A man needs at least 1600, and that's for a small, old man.)
When it comes to what foods are "allowed..." It's not about foods that are allowed or not allowed. It's about how you combine them and how much you eat of them. Bread, potatoes, pretzels, popcorn, and candy all have a lot of carbs, so if you want to be on a low-carb diet, you can't eat all of those things on the same day. You have to choose. And what's more important than what you "can't" eat is what you NEED to eat. Your tracker shows very little fruit or vegetables, and those are very important for a healthy diet.
Since you're just starting out trying to figure this out, why not use the SparkPeople meal plans? If you set everything up using your "Start" page, the computer will tell you how many calories to eat and will give you examples of menus that will give you that many calories in a healthy combination.
The meal plans aren't always practical-- the computer doesn't know that food doesn't come in one-serving packages and that some healthy foods are more expensive than others. To make it affordable, you can look at several days' worth of menu plans, choose two or three that you like, and repeat them so you use up the food that you buy.
Let the computer figure it out for you at first, and read as much as you can here on SparkPeople so you start to learn and understand what carbs, protein, and fats are, what foods they come from, and what they do for your body. After a while it will start to make sense and you'll be able to make your own healthy meals plans.
