Keep it up. I'm not going to go on a huge anti-carb rant but I'll give some thoughts on what will make you feel better and possibly lose weight faster.
-Slow-burn carbs only. NO BREAD. Not even wheat and "whole grain" breads, as they still have a high glycemic index.
-Quinoa is a fantastic source of carbs, it burns slowly and has a very, very small effect on your insulin levels.
-Real oatmeal is a great source of carbs. But don't get the quick fix stuff. Get whole oats and flax seed and make your own oatmeal.
-Sweet potatoes are a decent form of carbs. Still kind of high on the glycemic index. Partake occasionally.
-Avoid most cereals. Some Kashi cereals are okay, but most cereals are quick-burn carbs and laden with sugar.. just a bad idea all-around.
-Don't be afraid to ingest healthy fats. Healthy fats are great for you. Coconut oil, olive oil, avocado, animal fats, etc. are all great sources of healthy fats.
If you take in the right sources of carbs, you shouldn't have any problems with limiting your carb intake to ~150g/day. The only people that really need more than that are endurance athletes. The reason cutting carbs and/or eating slow burn carb works and helps you lose weight faster is all about insulin control. If you're eating those quick-burn carbs, and a lot of them, you're spiking your insulin at every single meal. When your insulin spikes, you end up storing excess carbs as fat. If you want to kill yourself exercising, you can burn off the stored fat. Or you can eat the right carbs at the right amount and a healthy amount of exercise and be well off anyway.
