I'm trying to stay under my carb and sugar limit as well as being within my calorie limit. I find this very difficult, as I am a vegetarian.. This means: no meat, not much bread and nearly no fruit. Which leaves me with what, only veggies and lettuce? Any suggestions?

Beans and Legumes are a good addition. Beans have a decent amount of carbs, but still not at all bad. Also, botanical fruits (eg tomatoes, cucumbers, etc) would be good for you. Do you have a dietician?

Carbohydrates are good for you.

If you are having a hard time figuring out what you can actually get any meaningful calories from, this 'low-carb-low-sugar' diet is destined for ruin. What you are looking at is a diet of cheese, eggs, low-calorie veggies, avocados, nuts, seeds, and oil. Why on earth you would want to eat this way is beyond me, it certainly won't be for health reasons.

Perhaps you could look at which foods vegan bodybuilders eat whilst they are preparing for a competition and want to get really ripped.

What's your "calorie limit"?

Brown rice, potatoes with skins, beans, and whole grain products are healthy carbs.
