I am a South Beacher! The first time I did it, I lost 30 lbs in about two months. I stayed on Phase 1 the whole time. But, of course, I gained it all back, and then some, because I lost all the weight for a cruise and then I moved, got depressed and ate.. Blah. But, now things are better, and I have 11 months until the wedding. I’m doing Phase 2, but I really need to go back to Phase 1 again.

MY FI and I do South Beach together every 6 months or so…me mostly to support him…

But I love it!  I only do Phase 1 for 2 weeks…he usually does it for 4ish and we’re pretty strict except for allowing alcohol every once in awhile (wine only – if it’s a special occasion).  He usually loses about 20 pounds, I lose about 5.

After doing South Beach a lot, we have added/changed a lot of our habits even when not on diet.  We pretty much do not ever drink beer…instead wine or vodka soda or bacardi diet.  I eat 15 almonds every day for my morning snack…we have cut out almost all non-whole grains.  (except for french fries!)

The first week is the hardest don’t you think?  Keep up the good work!  And get some yummy crystal light for your water…I like Raspberry Lemonade.

I did SB for a good while a few years ago. If I could give one piece of advice to folks who struggle with it, it’s this: EAT MORE VEGETABLES! I feel like the way the diet book is written, it’s really easy to construct your diet around your lean dairy and lean meat and, worst of all, the pre-fab meals that they’re selling as SB now. Just keep eating a metric crapton of vegetables every day and you’ll be healthy and happy and probably lose some weight.

Oh, just two days ago I made this recipe on Epicurious for FI and I for dinner, and we both loved it, and it occurred to me that it’s SB phase 1 legal! Bonus points for being vegetarian, too. Here you are, Eggplant Lasagne with Tomato Mint Sauce and goat cheese. It filled all my checkboxes of being delicious, healthy, quick, easy, vegetarian, and not too expensive.
