Low carb and high protein...how much is too much?

I lost about 60lbs a few years ago (on a low carb diet) when I was let go from one of my jobs during the financial crisis of 09' and started eating better (more time at home) and working out (home, again)....since then, i have been able to keep the weight off...but I know I still have about 20+lbs to go more or less

recently, Ive been back on a low carb/high protein diet...

my diet mainly consists of the following:

breakfast: 1 egg with a couple pieces of either turkey sausage or bacon, with a slice of cheese and a sandwich thin (16g net carbs)
coffee with SF creamer and about 1/8 1%fat milk

snack:
yogurt 4g carbs 12g protein
or string cheese

lunch:
2 hard boiled eggs and maybe some jerky (if I have it on hand) or nuts, roasted lightly salted

snack:
protien bar (10g total carbs, 4g sugar) 14g protein

dinner: chicken or steak with some veggies or a salad with cheese


I would like to start working out 3days a week...(very busy at work now ) so i want to start at 30min/3day/week
and add a protein shake once i start working out

can someone chime in...



TIA guys
