There's no rule that says you have to increase your carb intake after the first two weeks. If you want to continue to keep it at 20 grams of carbs or below, go for it. That will probably get you to your goal quicker. But if you find yourself feeling too bored with your diet because of having to be so restrictive, then increase your carbs a little rather than go off the diet entirely.
As far as the soup and chick peas, check the labels on everything or get a good carb counter book, and that will make it pretty clear what's "legal" or not.
