I agree with Katie. Try with making substitutions, such as brown rice instead of white or whole wheat instead of white wraps/bread/etc. Also, controlling portion size is a big factor on success.
In my case I chose the South Beach diet for two main and one extra reason. I have so much more energy and feel fuller longer without all the carbs in my diet. Also, wheat in general is an inflammatory and bothers my tendonitis if i have too much of it.. the side benefit is that i also lose weight! I'm not saying this diet works for everyone but find something that works and stay with it!
