Been on South Beach Diet since may, and by the way..i Don't think the south beach diet food makers have read the south beach diet book...I can make stuff just as good and lower bad carbs than what they have..I do enjoy the pizzas' though. Exercise too, but that's mainly to keep blood pressure down, and just good idea. Pretty much all of this is strictly from changing the way I eat.

Holy crap son! Your making me jealous I've started a bit of an exercise regimine which I hope will accelrate what has been rather SLOW weight loss on my end

What kind of things can you eat with said SB diet? Difficult prep, or quick and easy?

Ok, sorry was tired last night didn't really have time to reply much. Prep is easy actually, there are a lot of things you can eat and part of it is just finding alternative ways to eat what you like. I mean if you like certain things, it's very hard to give them up. For example, Pizza, I LOVE pizza, addicted to the stuff. What I do is use low carb soft taco shells for the crust, and just use normal topings (rest of the stuff isn't that bad, it's all the sugar carbs in the crust that is what your body doesn't "like" ) Takes about 15 minutes to prepare and cook.

Reading the book is prob the best way because they do have some recipes in there, Howver major part is just understand how you body deals with sugar carbs, fiber and fats. Fats are not bad with this, but they do recommend use low fat stuff, which I do. The main problem with foods nowadays is that foods so many foods just have too much sugar carbs in them. I buy sugar free stuff..there's sugar free pudding (made with splenda) and I love that. Half have a diet similar to diabetic, granted there's a lot of that in my family which is why i changed.

The south beach diet foods are good, however sometimes i think they didn't read the book when making the stuff, have more "bad" carbs that what i would consider "low carb"

Sounds like an interesting read. I've been mostly counting calories, picking up low/no sugar items and watching fat intake. I do good during the day, but dinner is probably killing any gains made during the day. But I can't complain too much, at least I'm not gaining weight. Went from a warehouse job to an office job, don't want to balloon up

How specialized is your grocery list?

BTW, I tried the SB bars before ( I usually have fat free/sugar free bars to go with lunch) and they sucked. . .like chewing on dry barley

I would not argue with you on the low carb "bars" the only ones i like are one brands peanut butter chocolate bars..those are good. But that's it, but I don't eat them much.. NOt really THat specialized..i use Low carb bread, can really only find the kind I like in Kroger, same with the low carb soft taco shells. Get sugar free pudding, 1% milk, ham/turkey 97/3 ground beef for burgers (no bun) eating out isn't bad. I can go to subway, what's funny is the italian (white) bread has the lowest amount of sugar carbs in it. So i just get a 6" ham no chips and diet drink. I'm addicted to Coke Zero, stuff is really good. Really don't miss sugar that much. Had a subway cookie today (choc chip) OMG was that good. But no longer feel the urge to eat 2-3, just one was it for me.

If you cut out sugar, you really end up NOT missing it. Oh yeah I usually have low fat sausage, or center cut bacon in the morning for breakfast. I also eat about every 2 hours. and have about 1 big meal a day.

Sounds like you got yourself planned out. . .I'm going to try and steal my step moms SB book from her and give it a read (found out thats how she lost her weight).

Still haven't lost much/any wieght, but I have been exercising regularly for the last few weeks. At least I don't get winded climbing a flight of stairs now, and my right jab is starting to sting
