South Beach Diet

South Beach Diet

This hugely popular diet promises diligent followers an initial weight loss of 8-13 pounds in the first two weeks. The emphasis is on avoiding highly processed carbohydrates, such as those found in baked goods, breads, snacks and soft drinks. Divided into three phases, the diet gradually reintroduces some initially forbidden foods. One premise of the diet is that low-fat prepared foods can be a bad idea except in the case of low-fat cheese, milk and yogurt. Exercise is not emphasized with this diet.

Day 105- 25.5 lbs. lost

Submitted by Janetcooper07 on Sun, 01/28/2007 - 12:16pm.

ok, bacon and eggs for breakfast. yesterday I had outback for dinner.  Sounds like I am not a diet, WRONG! the great thing that I really like is that is just a few simple choices everyday and not being silly.  Mainly, I quit listening to the other hype from other diets and other weight loss products.  It was common sense mixed in a great package. 

 

Another  1/2 lb. today, I am really on a roll! oh, last night I had the 9 oz. sirloin steamed vegetables and a small salad.  Skipped the bread and appetizers, so I made it fit into my plan.  By the way, another beauty of the diet smart plan is that when you lose enough weight, it is really easy to fit under your daily calorie counts, I can't eat up to my calorie limit and when I do, well, I still lose weight.

Everyone, I have now lost 25 lbs!!

Submitted by Janetcooper07 on Sat, 01/27/2007 - 11:35am.

The scale this morning read another magic number, 168.  I did a happy dance and then called Danny to come in and verify that I was not dreaming.  It is tremendous, I have lost 25 lbs!  I see that what I did is not that common compared to the other blogs and journals that I have seen. 

 I really think that diet smart was the right way to go, it was much easier than I thought.  things have been very busy so I have to keep moving and I don't have time to really write anymore, I will write a few postings this week on what I am eating now, but I am looking forward to 165!

That’s Better

The scale and I are on speaking terms again.  My friend Jules reminded me that you usually weigh a little bit more right before you get your period, and she was right.  As of yesterday I’ve broken through my plateau and I’m back on track.

Whew! What a relief. 

Day 97 and 170 lbs!

Submitted by Janetcooper07 on Sat, 01/20/2007 - 1:26pm.

Go ME!!!! Yeah, I did it! the scale read that beautiful 170 this morning.  It is waffles and champagne for breakfast!  I am so stoked!  can you believe it, me, 170 lbs!  I was almost 200 lbs only 3 months ago!  I will have to write my coach, he has been on me for the past couple of weeks to quit eating so many carbs but I crave sweets.  Who cares today, I want waffles and I am 170 lbs.   Next goal, a total weight loss of 25 lbs!

 

WHY HAS NO ONE EVER HEARD OF THIS?  This is insane, I can't believe how good this plan is and no one knows about it, oh well, it is my little secret.
