How I look it at. I don't look at it as a "diet" I look at it as a lifestyle change and what i eat. I think it would be the best if you limit the bad foods and such so you don't feel deprived instead of cutting it out completely because then I think ill feel worse in the long run
"When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing, then we truly live life."
"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good."

No it wouldn't include whole grains because those are considered natural foods. White bread and things along that line tend to be more processed and as such aren't as healthy.
But keep in mind there are body types that simply don't react well to starchy foods. Your body may be the type that secretes less insulin and as a result you build up a resistance to it. Whole grains are in fact simply easier to digest.
Diet soda you can still have but even with the artificial sweeteners it's really not good for you. If you depend on it I would continue to drink it but in moderation. And eventually try and cut it out all together.

Ok so i did some test to see what diet would work for me so it says Minimize or eliminate white carbohydrates from your diet (white bread, white rice, pastries, sugared sodas, processed foods.) would this include diet sodas, whole wheat bread, whole wheat pastas and low fat wheat pastries?
