It gets easier after you get into a routine.

Thats what I would like to do. I have to work really hard though. I love all the bad stuff... potatoes, rice and pasta but I can do without. I still want to eat 100% whole wheat bread and low carb tortillas and just stick with protein, fruits, veggies, and beans. I hope I can stick with it!

Basically you just modify the diet to suit your own needs. I have hypoglycemia so I have to monitor carbs and calories even though it is not required on South Beach. I eat lots of veggies and fruit and some beans but very little grains as many of them trigger me. I have to concentrate more on low carb dairy than low fat and I keep my carb level closer to a phase one than phase 2. I eat mostly fresh food and don't eat a lot of processed foods. And I don't worry about fat intake as much though I do eat mostly healthy fats.

Welcome to the team. You might be a candidate for a modified South Beach diet. It is not real low carb like Atkins but still reasonable.

Just started here today. I am hoping to create a new lower carb lifestyle for myself. I tried the atkin's diet once and lost 50lbs, but then I started eating carbs again and gained it all back. I am hoping this time around it will be a less drastic change and something I can stick with.
