Diet is about calories in vs calories out. If you are not burning more than you take in you will not lose weight, period.

On the issue of bread simply choose whole wheat over white bread.

Oh, and watch out for those salad sandwhiches. Chicken and tuna=good, chicken and tuna mixed in with fattening mayonaise placed in bread=bad.

If you are making salad sandwhiches make sure to use low fat or fat free mayonaise.

My salad sandwhiches consist of Turkey breast, tomato, low fat cheese, cucumber and beetroot sometimes a touch of onion for flavor

Carbohydrates fall in something called a Glycemic Index. The glycemic index (GI) rates carbohydrate foods on how quickly blood sugar/glucose levels increase in the 2-3 hours after eating as the carbs are converted into glucose. Generally fat or protein doesn’t increase glucose levels. Eating higher GI foods produces a rapid increase in blood glucose levels, triggering the pancreas to produces insulin. Insulin causes the body’s muscle and liver cells to attempt to store the excess glucose. Imagine insulin as a shuttle, moving glucose from just digested foods into storage. If the digestive system is pumping glucose into the blood stream quicker than insulin can move it into the muscles/liver or glucose stays high too long, the body will convert the excess glucose into fat. Eating lower GI foods produces slower glucose raise, little insulin and fat storage, even if you have eaten high fat content foods...
