South Beach Diet - Anyone had experience?

Hi
I've started the South Beach Diet, as my friend's Husband has, so she has, and I work with her too, so I have! For those who don't know, It's basically like Atkins but healthier, less fat. You follow a strict 2 week plan, No carbs, sugar, fruit, and then gradually introduce the good carbs in phase two.
Today is day 6 and I have followed the suggested meal plans, just substituting things I don't like for other things on the list, ie onions for tomatoes and celery for cucumber.
You eat lots of good meat and fish, eggs and salad and veg (except carrots) and have to eat five times a day, including pudding at lunch and dinner. The worst day was day two, VERY tired, but not been as bad since. A lot more food prep than i'm used to and I work full time too, but then you don't have time to think of crisps and chocolate! Side effects - Wind!! :oops: yikes

Anyone else done this? Did it work, was it easy to carry on afterwards?
Anyone on it now? Or thinking of starting and want food help!!

Re: South Beach Diet - Anyone had experience?

I'm sitting here drinking wine and I'm thinking: WOW Miss Daisy's avatar is SO attractive!
Hmm now let's have a closer look at the label on the bottle...

5 meals a day Shazzer, seems a lot. No fruit either?

Still it could work when you first go on it as most of these diets do, but is it the sort of diet that you can stick to for the rest of your life?

Re: South Beach Diet - Anyone had experience?

All these diets that claim to be "the" diet are rubbish, full stop. If you have to change what you eat radically you won't carry it on and within a few months will be back to square one.

The secret to losing weight is dead simple "Eat less, move more!" What you eat should be balanced, fresh food. Ready meals are full of fat and salt. What the goverment tells you to eat is basically bob-on, five or more portions of fuit and veg a day. Cut down on saturated fats, including red meat and dairy products. Excercise daily if you can, but at least 2-3 time a week. If you fancy a curry or a burger have one, but not every day. Just cut your normal portions down by a 3rd, and stay away from the cakes.

Re: South Beach Diet - Anyone had experience?

That's what i'm wondering Zipper! There are three phases, first strict, second reintroduce stuff and third maintain, I haven't looked past phase one yet!!
It's 3 meals and two snack but two meals include puddings (sugar free jelly and ricotta cheese desert)

DD I'm actually eating a lot more than I did, I never had breakfast or lunch, only a meal in the evening, so in that respect it's getting me into better eating habits. I eat a lot of what is on the allowed list, and have tried new stuff I have enjoyed, and enjoyed actually cooking, where as before I just threw something together. Even My hubby has had the main meals and he is not dieting at all. I agree with what you say, i'm trying to look at it as a kick start.

All sounds good to me, we all slip into eating "convenient" stuff. Doesnt matter what the diet is, the trick is thinking about what you eat, after that most peeps are sorted. Red wine is supposed to be good for you, and dark chocolate, there have to be some treats... wink big_smile

Re: South Beach Diet - Anyone had experience?

I hate dark chocolate, but one recipe is Ricotta cheese, plain cocoa, sugar substitute and vanilla essence, sounds gross but whipped together it is actually really nice, and like a chocolate mousse! (not mouse as I first typed!!!) yikes

Re: South Beach Diet - Anyone had experience?

...I would sooner be fat and happy big_smile big_smile (ok so who said i am fat)...

I "lost" my usual GP when he specialised, he had been good but very strict with me about my weight, as were my earlier GPs when I lived in other towns.
My new GP made a comment that many doctors are now taking a realistic view: some people will never lose weight.

Re: South Beach Diet - Anyone had experience?

i have to go and see the practice nurse at my GP's every year and she'd been on at me about my weight for ages, when i went in 2006 i'd lost 3 stone and her comment was "Well you were verging on morbidly obese - now you're just overweight"  yikes  roll No words of encouragement sad I was so looking forward to seeing her last year (2007) cos i'd lost another 2 stone and was at my ideal target weight - wouldn't you know she'd left the practice   roll I did see another nurse who was quite enthusiastic about my weight-loss but it just wasn't the same.

Re: South Beach Diet - Anyone had experience?

Wow!!! Well done u!  big_smile

Ive stuck a foto of the 'old me' on my fridge with 'Never Again' written on it! Works a treat...plus how good does it feel going into a shop and buying what you want instead of having to go to the 'larger sized rail'  big_smile
People do treat you differently, which they shouldnt do...cos its still the same person inside!

Re: South Beach Diet - Anyone had experience?

Thanks guys, and i must admit i really like the 'after' photo of me, i've never liked looking at photos of myself before but that one is really nice  8-)

In fact i carry those photos round with me and a few times i've shown people who i've only just met  big_smile big_smile big_smile

I did slimming world but i also do a lot of exercise as well. The other good thing is that i seem to be maintaining my current weight which, according to 'the figures' is ideal for my height  8-) I have been at my current (target) weight now since november last year, i did put a bit on over christmas but i got rid of it pretty quickly smile I am still weighing myself every week though just to keep a check on it, i think if i stopped weighing myself i'd let it go and would probably put a lot on through lack of motivation.

...plus how good does it feel going into a shop and buying what you want instead of having to go to the 'larger sized rail'  big_smile
People do treat you differently, which they shouldnt do...cos its still the same person inside!

I can relate to that - both bits, It's really really good to be able to go into certain shops and buy size 'small' and know it will fit  yikes big_smile big_smile big_smile And i love Matalan - i'm wearing size 8 trousers from there  yikes big_smile big_smile

The thing about people treating you differently is true too. I've got one school where the office staff are really odd sad They very rarely talk to me when i go in but one day they started asking how i'd lost the weight etc, another day i went in and the headmistresswas in the general office, the first thing she said as i walked through the door was "don't you lose any more weight young lady!" as if i was one of her pupils  :x Anyway, the office staff seem to be more inclined to engage me in conversation now - though if they don't i'm not bothered, as i say - they're odd  neutral

Losing the weight also had other unexpected benefits (sorry fellas ;-)) my periods have gone from 7 painful days down to 4 days, of which only the first day or 2 is painful smile

Sorry to hijack your thread shazzer  :oops:

Re: South Beach Diet - Anyone had experience?

Eat less move more.  Got to be the answer: and if you binge on food then binge on a bit more exercise.

Can't be bothered with can't eat this and can't eat that.  AND no I'm not my perfect weight: I Need to practise what I preach. lol

Going to find a bar of chocolate now. tongue


Wisest are they that know they know nothing

Re: South Beach Diet - Anyone had experience?

Just to update I lost 6lb in the first two weeks, my friend 10lb and her husband 1 stone. I did have the lest to lose, but have lost a stone so far. Am back into normal range for my height, just want a bit more personally!
