Any time you change your diet for the better, you're going to feel better. You're eating less sugar, more vegetables, more protein, whole grains instead of white, and probably a lot more unsaturated fats and less saturated. You quit eating junk food and started eating foods with antioxidants and other compounds that heal. You're likely drinking more water and walking more. All of those things make people feel better. It doesn't really matter whether it's South Beach or DASH or what; just paying attention and caring about eating well is going to do the trick.

Yes! I have definitely experienced less joint pain on a low/lower carb plan. I can think of two reasons why this might be. First, low-carb diets tend to be anti-inflammatory. This can help reduce swelling in joints and general pain in joints. Second, low-carb diets tend to be diuretic. This means that you lose 3-8 lbs of water right at the start and that is 3-8 lbs you are quite quickly no longer carrying on your tired joints or pumping through your body.

I lost a lot of weight and maintained it for years, then I got all stressed and busy and lost my way. Starting over from a much better place (way less to lose this time!) and making things better.

I'm starting to notice that on the South Beach diet that although my fat and protein is higher and my carbs are lower than SP recommends I am noticing my pain in my knees is virtually gone. In addition, my back which had started ache as well is doing quite well. Anyone else noticing improvements?
