My mom immigrated to America from Italy when she was a teenager so I kinda know how you feel. I savor bread and butter, and carbonara is a favorite of mine. It's hard, but I have insulin resistance and know that if I don't do low carb I will end up with diabetes so for me it's less of a weight thing.
I think you need to look for other ways of cooking things. Have you looked into Mexican cooking, minus tortillas is very low carb. Think shredded chicken with cream cheese jalapeņo sauce (queso fundido) sometimes just find a new set of recipes can help. My favorite dessert right now when I need it is berries with marscapone. Salami rolled with cream cheese is super yummy....
