I think its important to have a balanced diet in order to lose weight, but more importantly to keep it off. There is strong scientific evidence that those who eat whole grains on a regular basis can reduce their risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Its very important to have whole grains in your diet to stay healthy and reach weight loss goals.
If you are serious about losing weight consider your intensity level in your workouts. Are you building a "serious sweat" during your workouts, this can be an indication that your workout aren't hard enough.
