You have read it correctly. We suddenly have a lot of members here who either have not read the book or who have forgotten it, some also say they do not believe in the carb curve. Many also tried severe carb restriction immediately and did not feel well and decided they needed a lot more carbs, particularly starches.

When you have adjusted well, then it would be safe to lower carbs or calories further or to make macro adjustments when necessary.
It is far more important to be in good health than to loose weight. Good health first; then worry about weight.
Also, measure yourself as soon as possible. Do so every two weeks. You may well find that even if you're not yet loosing weight but have decreasing measurements (recomposition).
Your macronutrient percentages are more important than your calories. There are many such trackers on the internet. I use paleotrack.com because it's free and easy. Try it for a week or two until you're sure you know what you are eating. Staying between 75 - 100g carbs is good for the beginning weight loss.
