Good luck! Being a vegetarian makes it difficult to limit carbs because plant foods are carbs. Maybe by 'carbs,' you mean simple sugars or processed 'carb-y' foods. Carbs and protein have the same number of calories per gram, while fat has more than twice the calories per gram (9 grams vs. 4 grams). However you decide to diet, it has to work for you, long-term; maintenance is very difficult, otherwise. As you well know!
