Yes and no.
Yes, it is wonderful to reduce your carbs and that is a very healthy choice to make. Yes, it can be very workable to slowly reduce them over time.
No, 150 is not low carb. Low carb is generally under 100g per day. The lowest type of low carb is the ketogenic diet which is under 30g per day. No, merely choosing ANY food and keeping it at 150g does not mean you will be getting all the health benefits of a low carb diet, especially if those carbs are coming from sugar and grains.
But by all means, take your time with it, explore the different types of low carb, Atkins, Protein Power, Carb Addicts Diet, Paleo, there are so many out there, there is bound to be one you will enjoy. Most low carbers get most of their carbs from veggies, with smaller amounts from eggs, cheese, cream and so on. Remember that all foods and drinks have carbs except pure fats, water and unprocessed meats, fish (exception: shell fish) and poultry.
Hope you find the low carb method that you feel terrific on!
