You don't have to cut out bread, pasta and the like from your diet completely. Everything in moderation. It may not feel like you're losing much weight whilst eating a lot of these foods because they hang onto fluid. So you might just be holding onto some fluid. Salt may have an effect too, I know if I consume a lot of sodium, it appears that I haven't lost, or that I have gained, but as soon as I cut down on salt and get rid of the fluid, I'm back to normal!
