Default How does one sustain or get to so low carb?

I've been tracking my eating for the last several weeks. I eat no rice, no bread, no white pasta. I've eaten a 'bit' of barilla plus (high protein high fiber pasta) and a bit of baked potato with skin (when I had gestational diabetes, potatoes didn't spike my blood sugar). I also eat no empty carbs like candy or sugars.

So, here's my carb count since Jan 12th:

12: 126 net 111
13: 134 net 105
14: 142 net 109
15: 108 net 82
16: 64 net 47
17: 163 net 123
18: 119 net 91
19: 159 net 122
20: 144 net 109
21: 143 net 114
22: 174 net 136
23: 155 net 126
24: 213 net 158
25: 185 net 138
26: 184 net 150
27: 109 net 85
28: 147 net 112
29: 169 net 134
30: 82 net 55
31: 92 net 64
1: 119 net 84
2: 86 net 60
3: 124 net 86
4: 119 net 81
5: 163 net 129
6: 91 net 68
7: 139 net 109
8: 116 net 90

I'm eating on average 1700 calories a day and you can see my current weight. a drop of 10 pounds in a bit over a month. Besides getting rid of the little bit of potato I eat, I can't find many more things to cut carbs! Beans have carbs, veggies have carbs - EVERYTHING practically does.

Are these too high? or good? I just can't see how someone can eat 40 carbs ONLY in a day and still eating a healthy diet. Why isn't there more information out there on what is a good range? I can't find anythign concrete.
