If sweets are your down fall then find something to replace them. There are several low carbs recipes.

Here are some suggestions:

Low Carb Mock Danish

3 oz cream cheese
one egg
low carb sweetener (low carb syrups are nice!)

Microwave the cream cheese until it is soft. Add the egg and stir until smooth. Add the sweetener, flavoring that you want. Pop it back in the micrwave and nuke it again for about another minute. the center should still look soft.

What you can eat depends on your plan. South Beach is a great diet bases on the glycemic index. But there are many others and some are based on the glycemic load which is actually better than the index. I recommend that people take it easy on grains too and eat a lot of low glycemic veggies and fruits. Keep your net carbs between 20 and 150 depending on your plan. Any of these plans will get rof of your cravings if followed correctly.

I did Weight Watchers about 30 years ago and did fine, However, went back about 7-8 years ago and even following program, I did NOT lose weight. i stayed at the lower end of the points range even. Have found that I can't eat bread hardly ever, I just don't lose anything when I eat grains.

I'm basically following the Protein Power Lifeplan formula as far as eating and if I stick with it, it works...... (I have problems staying on plan).

South beach diet is low gi focused so I would suggest you do some exploring/reading there. There is an overview of the foods allowed lists on the SB team if you want to peruse at your leisure. emoticon

Hello!

Like you, I love my sweets. One of my best weapons is to avoid trigger foods that I know I have trouble eating within reasonable amounts. I also make sure that when I do have a treat that it is the highest quality that I cam find. This keeps me focused on the fact that the food I am eating is something special and not something to be eaten quickly and absent mindedly. In terms of eating a low carb/low GI foods, I am not an expert by any means, but two important things to keep in mind are (1) carbs should be comprised of complex whole grains as often as possible and (2) leafy greens have the lowest GI in general, so try to have some at least once each day.

I joined this group to get a better understanding of the low GI foods diet. It would be great if someone out there could give me a general overview of what foods to stick with. I am currently doing WW and despite the success that I have witnessed so many of my peers having on the program unfortunately it hasn't translated to much success for me, not to mention that I have struggled every step of the way. I work out 6 days a week, 3 with a personal trainer so its not the workouts that are a problem for me clearly its all about what I'm eating. I have a crazy sweet tooth that throws a wrench into whatever weight loss success I may have and I'm rather frustrated. So I'm looking for something new. This might be what I need. I'd love to hear back from anyone with any details you can share with me about this diet. Thanks:)
