Tis the season, as they say.

Happy Holidays, everyone!

It's been a long time since I posted on this here blog, an absence mostly due to my repeated falling off of the healthy eating wagon.

This last weekend, cruising around SparkPeople, I was inspired by the folks over at the South Beach Diet (lifestyle) team. I did some reading of their posts and kind of got the South Beach bug.

On Sunday, I began what's called "Phase I" - a low carbohydrate part of the plan that is meant to be practiced for two weeks, before heading off to a more plentiful plan that offers more options. It's not "no carbohydrate"...just low.

So far, so good, but I've got to work on getting my planning down. Last night, it took me round about an hour to prepare the family's lunches for today, and then another hour to get dinner on the table. If nothing else, I burned calories standing around cooking and cleaning, right?

    The South Beach diet plan really does work. As long as you're not on Phase One for more than 2 weeks. Its not a healthy way to eat. But even if you do it for a week, you will lose weight.
    ...I'm not able to do it, due to liver problems. For me, it made me terribly nervous and irritable, and tired. Let me know how it goes for you.

    Best of luck, hon!

    My Dr. has just suggested the South Beach diet to me. I should take a look at it.
