I have. Started 3 weeks ago. I think it's a wonderful diet. Really healthy. I omitted the artificial sweeteners though (I used stevia instead). Since you are already gluten free, you will probably BREEZE through Phase 1. Most people get headachy, faint, tired from the lack of unhealthy carbs. But since you have already MOST LIKELY eliminated these, it will probably be much easier for you. I wish you well with the program. They have some great recipes too.
I have done South Beach before...it will not be hard to adapt if you just steer clear of their processed products and do the diet PLAN outlined in the book or online. Google it and you can find free resources for the food lists. It is very healthy and I think mostly GF naturally. I always felt great on it before my diagnosis because of this!
Well several months later my casual diet while living GF has done wonders for my belly. That is no more ouie and other yucky stuff. But most definitely no real weigh loss plus the added conundrum of a high Cholesterol level has my doctor recommending I try the South Beach diet. I've started looking into the plan. Has anyone been doing this diet with GF modifications?
