Not so...: Too low or too high on anything is often not recommended...Thus use a sensible approach to your weight loss with balanced, healthy diet and exercises. You must come up with a plan that works for you day in/out without feeling it as a huge burden or else you won't likely succeed.
You definately should include fruits, veggies, yogurts, cereals as part of your healthy diet....

Food: Fruit and yogurt are fine. High fiber cereals are fine as well as long as you don't consume excessive amounts. You also want to eat vegetables and protein (beef, pork, poultry, eggs, beans, etc).

Determine Yourself: Most marketing, advice&products, is only marketing to sell stuff, Not Reality. I disagree with other answers. To figure out what works for you, weigh daily, to 0.01 lbs accuracy, after up & commode, & record. Mentally do a detailed review of specific foods & quantities you ate previous day & Start Seeing What Works vs. What Does Not. LCHF really helps. Study my answers, DietDoctor.com & NuSI.org.
