Default Im new to this ... how low is low?

I'm thinking of low carbing, along with watching portions, but am a bit unsure of how low to start at? I've done Atkins induction before and did well with that. Would that be a good place to start, or a bit higher? I'm not really following a specific plan, just trying to cure my carb addiction ... And lose weight of course

One day at a time!

It's my belief that this is a YMMV issue. I kept experimenting til I found what level of carbs I could eat without my appetite getting out of control, and for me Linking protein with carbs is important. With eating at the carb level I do, I have to also keep an eye on calories. I have noticed that I can eat more calories when I decrease my carbs. It's all a balancing act. Good luck.
