My suggestion is to throw all "diets" out of the window for a little bit and work on figuring out which foods make you flare and which ones are OK. If you are afraid to get off of the low-carb train then I suggest looking into the Paleo diet and using that as a guideline when searching for foods that make your stomach upset. I have heard of a lot of people that have success on Paleo like diets (SCD diet is the popular one in IBD circles) in controlling their symptoms. Getting into remission should be your #1 priority and your weight loss can take the sidelines for a bit.
Remember, what works for one person may not necessarily work for you. In general I know nuts, corn, popcorn, greasy & fatty foods are usually bad when you are in a flare up. Some fiberous vegetables can also cause symptoms to get worse. Once you are in remission you should be able to add a lot of these items back into your diet, within moderation.
I hope you find what works for you and your lifestyle - this is definitely a marathon not a 5k.
