Default South Beach Diet Check In Thread

I use to be a member here many years ago in the the Day when Judynyc was on the boards. She was a great asset to the site and the South Beach way of eating, I do hope she is well.

Anyway, after falling asleep for many years and gaining lots of weight, Iíve reached a point where I really need to make some changes. Iíve tried other plans but the truth is, none seem to work for me for one reason or another so Iíve come back to a plan that is personally tried and tested and works for me.

I donít intend on moving to phase two of the plan until Iím near goal weight. This is because, I want to do what works for me best. Apparently (and Iím not totally sure about this) the South Beach diet has completely changed since the plan Iím about to list. If this is true, Iím not very interested in updating my plan, as Iíve said, this works for me.

Itís a shame itís so quiet around here, I would love to have some company but Iím happy to use this as a kind of diary if not.

Wish me luck

The South Beach Diet? is designed so that you can easily swap meals and ingredients. If you don't like eggs for breakfast, have low-fat cottage cheese or lean meat instead. Not a fish lover? Then choose lean beef or poultry. In Phase 1 of the diet, you can eat as many proteins and vegetables as you like, plus fats like olive oil. Fruit and starches aren't allowed until Phase 2. Here's a look at some general eating guidelines. For specific food choices, check out the Phase 1 Foods to Enjoy & Avoid list.

BREAKFAST
Protein: Quantity is not limited. Start with a 2 oz. portion, eat slowly, go back for seconds if still hungry.

Hello Nameste, I am new to this forum. I have done SBD before and I know it works best for me. This past year I have let myself go and it is time to get back on track. I am starting from the beginning. I will be following the original plan so no pre-pack food for me.

My official starting date will be Monday June 25th (i need to go grocery shop) I will do my best to post my meals here if that is ok with you.

Hello Izzy

Totally fine with me, I look forward to hearing about what you are eating! The old plan is a great plan. I find it hard to believe the plan has turned towards prepackaged food. I guess they are OK for emergencies or when youíve little time but I thought the whole principal behind SBD was fresh and healthy food?! Iím in the UK, we donít have the meals here so I wonít be trying any.

Iím really enjoying my food so far. Yesterday, I made a herby Bolognese style dish with turkey mince, lots of fresh rosemary and thyme... itís honestly so good I donít feel like Iím dieting and thatís key for me. Iíll probably have it for lunch again today. Dinner might be a lean beef stir fry or thereís a Gorden Ramsay fish cake recipe I want to try.

So far, I am doing ok. I haven't weight in yet because I have my period and I am very bloated.

How about you? are you ready for the 4th of July? Dh, is going to grill steaks tomorrow and ribs on Wednesday. I might have leftover steak since I don't think we can have ribs
