Try reading one of the Schwarzbein books. she doesn't recommend low carb diets, shes an endocrinologist and says that too low carbs are just as bad as too much. she recommends a controlled carb diet based on whether or not you insulin resistence and adrenal fatigue. and she only recommends counting starchy carbs, not the non-starchy carbs like tomatoes, onions, cucumbers, etc.
so like for breakfast it could be a couple ak-mak crackers, or a slice of ezekiel or rice bread, or 2/3 c oats. for me, i'm going to start with 1/4 c oats, 1/4 c yogurt & 1/3 c berries for my breakfast carbs.
just an idea. also, up the protein. I thought I was doing great with protein, when I typed it in to sp, I realized, I wasn't even meeting the 15% and now I try to keep it between 20 - 25%. So for me that would be at least 3 -4 oz protein with my 4 meals.
thats just my personal experience.
