The subsequent books had updated food lists. Pickles are just basically processed small cucumbers and water. You will take a hit on salt but some don't have added sugars and those are the ones to look for. What you generally are trying to avoid in phase one are sugar and starches.

It is to stay on plan during the eating holidays.

dill pickles are allowed or artificially sweetened pickles. Pickles with sugar added to them are not allowed - like sweet pickles. There are a couple of brands of artificially sweetened sweet pickles though.

Starting tomorrow! I just got the book today. dh was reading the book while we were in a waiting room today and thought it was a good one. he's diabetic so it will work for both of us. He doesn't need to lose weight so he'll get to eat the fruit for me.

Those childhood comfort foods really are tempting. I think it might be a good idea for you to do some research on those to find ways to make them as healthy as possible and make them yourself from time to time. It shouldn't take much to make them Beach friendly as they sound fairly Beachy already. That is what I have done with most of my family comfort foods. Life is too short to live it in deprivation. I hope you have a good phase one. Let us know how you do!

Thanks, Morticia. Yes, this weekend was probably not the best time to start. I had a stuffed cabbage, braised cabbage and Polish stew at the festival, the most healthy options there. I just couldn't pass up having some foods from my childhood that I only have a chance to eat once a year at most. So I don't think I did too badly today (except for the 2 lemon vodka shots!). Altho I could only estimate my calories, I think I kept within my range.

For the next 2 weeks, I don't have any social commitments that could get me into trouble, so I'll just add 2 days to my 2 weeks and I should be good to go.

Thanks for the words of support!

It sounds like you will encounter a lot of challenges along the way. You might try eating before you go and take along some healthy snacks with you. Try to eat on plan as much as possible on phase 1 as it's only 2 weeks and is designed to get rid of cravings and jump start the weight loss. The rewards can be substantial. I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks. My son lost 13. Good luck!

Well, I started Phase 1 yesterday and immediately veered off plan. After work, my husband wanted to go to a rib cookoff. Wonderful. The good news is that the samplers were so expensive, I refused to buy any. I had 1 small rib only, then insisted on going to a real restaurant and had broiled fish and asparagus. Yum! The bad news is that I had 2 alcoholic beverages. The OK news is that I was well within my calorie range for the day.

So.... today I am committed to going to a Polish food festival tonight. I know there will be little if anything beach-worthy there. I will do my best to make the best choices possible, and will not have any alcohol at all.

It seems like this may be the worst possible time to start phase 1, but my thinking is that there is always something that will come up to derail us. So I've decided to stick to the plan and if there are bumps in the road I will not let them derail me. Since this is a lifestyle, not a diet, I need to learn how to actually do it in real life with all its temptations!

Wish me luck!

The updated lists are on the sticky threads including the lists for the gluten free book which is the latest diet book and where they allow agave. The books change over the years as he writes new ones.He is less thrilled with grains now than he originally was but then more and more doctors are who keep up with the latest scientific info. We recommend that you count calories as you will still need to have a deficit to lose.

Thank you ... and I LOVE agave ... I have the book from 20 or so years ago ... and probably should borrow the updated book from so the library so I could 'check out' some of the 'newer' items that may be on the list. On Sunday, I can start Phase II.

Weight loss is not tremendous - but steady - so I'm happy(ish) ... was hoping for more weight loss, but I'll take what I can get.

Phase one is deigned to get rid of cravings and to break your dependence on sugar. Have you tried all of the sweeteners? You can have acesulfame k, agave 1tbs a day, aspartame, monk fruit no calorie sweetener, saccharin, stevia, truvia, sucralose. You can also have sugar alcohols but they can cause G.I distress.

Other allowable treats are sugar free candies, no sugar added chocolate powder, sugar free chocolate syrup, unsweetened cocoa powder, sugar free drink mix, sugar free frozen pops, no sugar added fudge pops, sugar free gelatin, sugar free gum, sugar free jams and jellies, sugar free syrup.

I'm not especially fond of the taste of artificial sweeteners either and my solution is to keep them to a minimum and get my sweet fix from fruit - in phase 2, of course. Phase one is only 2 weeks and if you follow the plan you most likely will be in for a significant weight loss. It is worth the sacrifice.

Hi everyone. . .I'm Heidi. This is the 2nd time I did South Beach - first time was years and years ago. I'm doing well, but would like to make the 'dessert' with the Ricotta, but I absolutely HATE the taste of ANY artificial sweetener. Is there any sweetener I might be able to use to eat this dessert?

I really wanted a little something the other night and tried this with ricotta and vanilla (no sweetener) - ... it just wasn't good.

After Saturday, I can/will begin eating fruit again. I'm REALLY looking forward to that.

Thanks!

Sorry to hear that you are not looking forward to the move! Moving is stressful but hopefully things will be looking up for you soon.

This is Day One of Phase One for me. So far so good. I feel great getting back on track. I was on vacation for a couple of days so I welcome being able to eat more healthy. I know the first 2 weeks are challenging but I CAN do it! I didn't weigh myself because I KNOW I gained. I don't want to plummet emotionally. Next week I may have the courage to weigh.

That is probably true, too. Only add that to the news we received last week that a my husband's company will relocate us has brought about some emo eating. I am too old to be relocated, again, or so I thought.

It's not uncommon for this to happen. You may have encountered a trigger. A lot of us found we were triggered. For me it was grains. I can't eat bread nor pasta.

Well, we got through the first two weeks, but we found out, last week, that adding a little bit back turns in to more and more slip ups. I enjoyed a 12 pound loss the first to weeks but a 1.5 pound gain from our first week of Phase 2. Checking our habits this week. Still having 1 fruit or 1 grain, but no more fudging!

Be sure your daughter is getting in her 1/2 cup of beans a day. Many people miss that this is part of the diet but it helps the low carb flu symptoms. So does getting in lots of fluids. We should be eating 4.5 cups of veggies a day, 2 low fat dairy, 2 servings of healthy fats, 2-3 snacks, and lean protein.

Your dessert sounded delicious. It really helps to try new South beach recipes. Kierae has put a lot of really great ones in the sticky threads if you need any inspiration.

Why, thank you! Yesterday was much better as the headache didn't reappear, although my daughter, who is on this journey with me, could still out-walk me. She is in her mid twenties, much taller (including long legs, mine stopped growing upward at age 10). Still, she is also complaining about fatigue.

We created a dessert of plain greek yogurt, peanut butter, stevia, cocoa powder with a dollop of ff cool whip. That seem to brighten our eyes as well as our walks. haha.

yep, that is the way to handle it. It works especially well if you gain weight from salt ingestion.

Alcohol is actually one of the chief triggers. Others are nuts, cheese, bread. Dr. Atkins wrote in depth about the problems with alcohol years ago. Some people can hande it though in moderation and Dr. A. allows it in phase 2 &3. It raises HDL levels which is great if it doesn't cause cravings, weight gain, stalls. You just have to watch closely when you are in unchartered territory. Triggers become apparent then - the worse for me is any kind of whole wheat pasta.

It's a shame that there is not more healthy food offerings at get-togethers. I have actually been to dinners where they didn't have a single thing to eat that was on plan. Sometimes you just have to choose your poison. LOL.

I wouldn't have thought that, but def possible that alcohol could be a trigger. I feel like being around all the chips, cake, subs, was an emotional trigger for me. Learning lesson, for next time I'm with friends.

Wow!! You did great - that was a fantastic save. It's hard to recover from a trigger. It sounds like you will have to be very careful with alcohol. No fat burning occurs when it's in your system.

I am focused, but yesterday had some wine, because friends came to celebrate our anniversary, and today I was up 1lb, and I am craving off limit foods, I haven't caved, even yesterday, everyone was having "junk" food, and I stayed on target, and managed to exercise.
Today to deal with the cravings, I made cauliflower pizza crust, and I had a sf treat. I feel satisfied, but def, it was harder today.

Vegetables should be the focus of any diet. Though diet approaches may vary most agree that low glycemic veggies are great. The more I eat the better I feel.

Sounds like you have lost a lot of weight already. Congratulations!! Stalls can usually be traced to one of a few things. The diet in a nutshell is 4.5 cups a veggies a day, 1/2 cup of beans, 2 low fat dairy, 2 to 3 healthy snacks, 2 servings of healthy fat - usually 1 tbs is a serving, and lean meat. These are all important components of the diet. You need to track your food intake and exercise as well. Many people who stall are eating too much cheese or nuts - they are limited to a 1 ounce serving of nuts daily and 1-2 ounces of cheese daily in phase one and one ounce in phase 2. Are you eating too much fat? Too many calories? Make changes in those areas and the scale will start moving again.

I started changing my diet on 1/13/14 after a Dr. visit. I started P1 3/3//14 I have a lot of weight to lose, so I am staying on P1 for at least 1 more month. I have noticed that I haven't lost but 1lb since last Monday.(Yes I know that 1lb is 1lb and I think that is great) I do want to increase my weight loss so I am going to keep a closer look this week at my veggie intake, I think sometimes I am not getting them in as frequently as I should, and also add some walking to my program. I did have one proud of myself moment yesterday. I realized I have lost 1/4 of the weight I want to lose Which is quite amazing! I do struggle on the weekends with P1, But I am trying to come up with new recipes so I don't feel deprived. I sometimes get discouraged by the prep work and cooking, but I repeat to myself My life depends on this, and my time is worth me. Any P1 encouragement would be greatly appreciated!

Good morning!

I just threw out the leftover ice cream in the freezer and WW candy bars. I am gearing up for this again. Mentally getting prepared which I think is a big thing.

I am spending Sunday and Monday in the hospital for my nursing clinical. Should I wait until after Monday to start or do you think the side effects from withdrawals are doable? I gotta be on my game at clnicals.

I followed the diet exactly as ordered and my sugar cravings were gone in a 2 or 3 days. I felt satisfied all the time. I lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks and my son lost 13.

Phase one is designed to get rid of cravings. Most people are not hungry when they follow phase one as ordered so it makes doing without the sugar easier.

There is a section in the sticky threads on breakfast. You don't have to eat eggs every day. Think outside of the box. Have leftovers for breakfast.

As far as the constipation, 1/2 cup of beans daily is part of the plan including phase one. Drink your 8 glasses of water and get your varied 4.5 cups of high fiber veggies in and it should help. The cereal is not a good option. You can always take a fiber supplement - psyllium or synthetic methylcellulose or polycarbophil. Preferably sugar free. All with lots of water.

Hey everyone,
I have not been successful on staying on track the past couple of days for a couple of reasons.
#1) I realize that I have been eating so much sweets lately, that letting them go seems really really hard. I think I am addicted to sugar. I think I need to let go of artificially sweetened food as well.
#2) I didn't want to start at phase 1 because I am afraid I will get bored of eggs ever single day for breakfast and secondly, I am also afraid of getting constipated. Therefore, I rationalized that I can still eat beans (for fiber) and high fiber cereal. Hence, I wasn't really following the plan as laid out.
Does anyone have any suggestions, recommendations, especially when it comes to constipation (I really do consume a lot of fiber to keep regular) and not get bored of the same foods?

There is no way to know for certain the reason for the headaches. It could be any number or reasons but it could be diet related. Many people on phase one have symptoms which we refer to as the "low carb flu". These symptoms mimic the flu and usually self-limiting. They can eased by drinking plenty of water and by being sure you eat your daily beans.

I believe this is a common South Beach "side effect" (in addition to constipation). I haven't experienced much trouble with it myself, so hopefully others can give you some good tips.

Has anyone experienced extreme headaches on Phase one? I did when I first began on day 2/3 but they subsided and I felt great. I am on week 2 and I have had a headache for two days and this morning woke up with one. So want to feel better. Wondering if it is the diet, or just the stress of my job. Thanks in advance for sharing any ideas.

Changing me one day at a time!

Zucchini is fairly bland so I'm sure it would make a great tasting crust.

I would have thought that the zucchini crust would have been mushy.

It's funny how the toppings and seasonings are often what makes the pizza. You can put the toppings and seasoning on any number of "crusts" and get the taste of a pizza.

Wow! Thanks for the terrific gluten-free pizza crust link. I had no clue there were so many to choose from. Between all those and even more in part 1, I will keep busy experimenting for the year.

I've been wanting to try one made with cauliflower, but I made one instead using ground turkey for the crust, which was great. A bit difficult to try and hold a slice in your hand to eat, so ate it using a fork. Yum!

Hi SLIMANA, I don't know if this will help, but I saw a Kalyn's Kitchen recipe for gf pizza this morning. I just went back to see if I could find it for you and it also gave me this link.
I hope it helps!

I know Pam uses low carb tortillas. They would have to be corn ones. Let us know how the recipes turn out.

I'll have to go shopping for some of those different ingredients that I've never used before, along with some cauliflower also to try that too.

I don't remember seeing one. You could probably google one on the internet though. I know a lot of people like the cauliflower crust ones. Kierae posted a couple of recipes in the sticky threads.

Pizza Crust

2 eggs
1/2 C Coconut Milk
1/3 C Coconut Flour
1/4 C Almond Flour
1/4 C Arrowroot Powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350. Prepare a pan by fitting with parchment paper and lightly greasing with extra virgin olive oil. In separate bowls, combine wet and dry ingredients. Stir wet into dry. The crust will be more of a batter consistency than a dough consistency.
Pour onto prepared parchment paper and form into the shape desired with a spatula.
Place in oven for 20 minutes till firm.
Remove from oven and top with desired toppings. Return to oven till toppings are heated through, or cheese is melted.

-----------

2/3's recipe:

I thought I should add the flax meal base that I've been using to make my pizza. I've tried it twice now and it's worked well both times.

2 1/2 tbsp flax meal
1/4 tsp baking powder
Onion powder to taste
Garlic powder to taste
1 large egg
1 tbsp water

Mix the flax, baking powder, with the onion and garlic powder in a bowl. Beat in the egg and the water, until the mixture has the consistency of batter. Pour into 8" microwavable flat plate that has been very lightly oiled with olive oil, or pam, and spread (till it covers entire bottom). Cook uncovered for 3 minutes in the microwave on high.

Please tell me if there is a recipe for gluten-free pizza in the new SB- GS cookbook? If so, can you share it? I'd like to make it for Super Bowl Sunday.

I fix 3 meals a day so I don't have much excuse not to be more experimental. LOL.

It's time I started using the cookbooks more often to put some spark in my meals. LOL.
