Anyone do South Beach?

Hi. I've been reading sites that talk about the South Beach Diet. Now I'm more confused than ever!! Can somebody just tell me what's allowed on Phase 2? Thanks for any help. (Yes, I did read the book.)

Anyone do South Beach?

Hi Sue,
I'm trying to get us going on the South Beach diet too. It can be confusing what is allowed and when. I don't think I could do this without the book. If you have it, look on page 198 and 199. I like to copy these lists of foods to enjoy and foods to avoid and put it on my refrigerator.
Its almost easier to think about what you aren't allowed. You are only allowed starches sparingly and they have to be whole grains. You can have some fruits now though. Apples, blueberries, cantelope, grapes, kiwi, pears are a few. They still don't want you to have bananas or canned fruit, pineapple or raisins, not ice cream
They do add some more veggies to the list and popcorn and brown or wild rice. Pretty much no sugar, but will sparingly allow chocolate.
I don't think this diet is so bad to follow. Splenda is my new best friend and if I can have some strawberries and blueberries in some high fiber cereal with some milk I'm a happy girl. I also use light whip cream on this diet. Sometimes when I'm having a sugar fit I'll have sugar free jello heaped with light whip cream or a bowl of strawberries sweetened with splenda, plus some whip cream and I'm over the attack.
Good luck with this. How are you coming on it?

Hi Ladies. I just bought a copy of the South Beach Diet last night. Please keep us posted on your progress. I'm hoping this diet will be the answer for me. Prior to my surgery, I tried several diets...Atkins, Weight Watchers and Dr.Phil. Unfortunately, I'd lose the initial water weight, then nothing. Just got my hormone levels. Turns out I have too much estrogen and doctor said I've had too much estrogen for a while...even before the surgery. We've adjusted my HRT to a very very low dose of estrogen with more progesterone and he said the weight gain should stop and I will probably be able to lose weight now. Hoping for the best!

Oh, I haven't gotten into any diet at all!! I weigh more now than I have in years and years! I can't eat things with artificial sugar (had too much years ago when I was on another diet, and now it bothers me). Dh and I need to do something about our obesity, but we haven't. I hope we do soon. Hope you all do well on South Beach or whatever diet/healthy eating plan you choose.

I have been South Beaching since August 30th and have lost 13 pounds. It's been a great program for me because I seem to be addicted to carbs. I found that almost from the very beginning, my cravings, which led to numerous weekly binges, practically disappeared. The foods we are allowed to eat are DELICIOUS !! I have also lost belly fat, which is something that is always so hard to get rid of.
