I’ve been thinking about it, but Mr. T makes it sooooo hard to avoid bad carbs. Like, impossible. It’s all he eats! lol Lots of friends have had success with SB though!

I was on South Beach phase 1 for a week. I did lose 8 lbs. during that week. The first few days I didn’t feel that bad and was elated with the rapid weight loss. But then I started getting light-headed during aerobics and other activities – my blood sugar levels were too low! Plus I am not that big of a veggie person and I just couldn’t get 4 cups of veggies into me per day! I am now kinda doing my own version of the Carb-lovers diet. Trying to keep my carb intake low and only eating good carbs – whole or multi-grain products. Ultimately losing weight boils down to eating less and exercising more.

I did it for a while. I lost 7 lbs, but I was feeling too week. I only eat whole grains/wheat in moderation now and I am still losing a little bit at a time. I am content with that because I was already at a weight that was considered healthy for my height, and near my goal weight.

@Soon2bBB: I was eating beans everyday, but it probably didn’t help that I was in 90+ degree weather at the time (I was in phase one during July).

@Soon2bBB: Good luck! Maybe we should try working out in a pool.

i did it about a year ago and i got really, really weak. however, i did lose about 7lbs in 9 days and i felt thinner, but i was on the stairs one day at the gym and about lost it and fell off, i dont think it is a healthy or reasonable diet at all. Consider weight watchers…
