A low carb diet should be low carb not no carb and the carbs should come predominantly from low carb veg.  I try to have at east one portion of low carb veg at every meal (easy to do when you ditch the carby traditional breakfast options of toast and cereal) and breakfast becomes mushroom and eggs or a green protein smoothie.
