OK, I'm desperate and I'm ready to try a low carb diet. What should my shopping list look like?

I am a pasta eating, rice lover, bread smoochin' kind of person ( I have seriously kissed particularly cuddly pieces of bread that have crossed my path). I am also trying to lose serious (75 lbs) weight. Up to now, a balanced diet has worked. I have lost 30 lbs, but the second half of my journey seems to be blocked by a huge plateau that has lasted about a month. I have been stuck at 176 lbs while working out (running + weights) 6 hours a week and eating 1300 cals a day. I'm sick of it.
So reading AskMeFis, I see people recommend low carb diets a lot, but hey, carbs are like the bulk of my diet! So I would like to know...
What's the science behind this idea?
Has it worked for you?
How does a complete newbie get started?
and the most important part...What are some must haves on my shopping list?
