    Hey, I follow South Beach. I lost 80 lbs doing South Beach and have pretty much kept it off. I am starting phase 1 again, trying to get myself back on track. I like south beach. I don't think it's a fad diet either. I think it's a smart and healthy way to eat. People do all kinds of different diets on here or ways of life on here.
I've done South Beach and utilized Sparkpeople for almost 2 years. You can totally do both. I use sparkpeople for the support and motivation. I find that blogging helps me sort out my feelings.
I do understand and will tell you that you should most definitely do what's best for you.
"Hugs"

    I agree with everyone that you should do what's best for you, but don't leave sparkpeople. I don't follow the diet plan, but I use the calorie, fat, protein, carb,etc guideline. You can also adjust it as you wish. I've tried using the weight watchers principal and southbeach in the past stayed on spark tracking what I ate and my exercises

My only question for you is: Will you eat like the south beach recommends for life or would you rather learn to enjoy the things you love in moderation and prepared more healthly? Wishing you lots of luck on whatever you decide. We are here to support you. Be Blessed

    Do what you feel is best for you, I would hate to see you go. There's such a strong support system here, people that care about helping you reach your goals. I know several people who love South Beach. It's not a good program for me but if it's good for you then that's all that matters. Only you can decide what is best. I've been on SP for 3 years and am not at goal weight. I also do not follow their guidelines. I'm here to use the support. I have learned so much on this journey and my eating has improved so much! I eat a really clean diet now, I exercise regularly and although I don't lose weight very fast, I drop inches like a mad woman! In the end, that's what matters because I know that's all the fat melting away! Good luck

    I probably will stay on here just not follow their guidelines because it is not working at all and I do not have much time. I did use the southbeach diet and I kept the weight off for 3 years or so. Then I dated a guy that owned a pizza shop and well you can guess what happened I was not watching what I was eating so really it is not a fad diet. I lost 50lbs in 4 months last time so I have to get this done and the last stadge of the diet you are suppose to maintain about the same diet that is on here.

    Why can you not do both at the same time? I follow a low-carb diet set forth by my nutritionist and still do Sparkpeople. I use sparkpeople for encouragement, griping, ideas and friends. Don't leave just because you're following something different. You can do both.

    Based on the information you posted on your Sparkpage, you sound very stressed out. South Beach is a fad diet, are you looking to just loose really fast???? You risk gaining it back REALLY FAST. I understand you want to be thinner for your wedding but trust me, I've been married for 6 years, the weight does come back, with a vengeance. Be careful and try Yoga or jogging as a way to ease the tension. I hope you decide to stay with Spark. emoticon
