Default Question about Carbs

So when I enter my food log I come up with a lot of carbs approx 100...with that they are from V-8 juice~Veggies~fruit~oatmeal~cottage cheese etc. No Bread, no pasta. My protein is about 120...tons of water plenty of Fiber. Total calories between 1400-1800 a day. Is this high carb count going to hinder my weight loss even though they are from "good" foods???

Any help on this would be appreciated

Absolutely not. Like you say they are coming from clean foods and besides, 100 grams is not all that much. I've been working out a lot with cardio and I would be dying if my carbs were that low. Are you exercising? I'm not that much concerned with carbs since I'm eating clean, but I still try to keep them around 50% or a little less, but if I get upwards of close to 60% (upwards of 280 grams) some days I don't panic. People tend to go overboard with "low carb" and I've read things about the dangers of too low of carbs.

The main thing is to watch calories in versus out. There's a lot of other tricks, but 100 grams of carbs is NOT going to hurt.

Does it look like higher carbs has hurt my weight loss?
