Hi team!! emoticon

I'm starting on phase 1 this weekend, after I go grocery shopping. I am a newbie. I have not done any strict dieting in ages. More like counting calories and that is not working lately. So I thought I would give SB a try. Mostly because I've been eating a lot of carbs lately and I need to cleanse my system. Plus I like the idea of basing my nutrition on the 4.5veggie servings on SB.

Carb and calories cycling are fairly simple. You go to a site that gives you a range for how many calories you should eat depending on your height, weight, activity level and you eat at the high end and low end of your calorie range. The same with carbs - you alternate eating at the high end and low end of your range. So if your ideal calorie level is 1300 calories you would eat at 1200 calories one day and 1400 the next. Or eat 120gms of carbs one day and 75gms the next. Personally I think most people lose best when they are below 150 net carbs a day. The bottom line is to vary your intake so that it keeps your body guessing.

Yep. time to do some detective work. Make some changes. Be sure and vary your exercise program. You might try carb and calorie cycling too if this doesn't work.

Restarting Phase 1 tomorrow. I've been working out ALOT and the scale is refusing to budge. I know my eating habits have not been the best lately but they haven't been completely horrible either. We'll see if cutting out alot of carbs helps, if not I will know to talk to my doc about having a thyroid test because something might be going on there.

I'm starting back on Phase 1 tomorrow. My blood sugars have been going up lately, and by getting on this plan hopefully they can come back down while I lose some weight, too.

You certainly have a lot of motivation to make this work. That is a lot of money. I only take one B.P. pill a day now - generic of course. LOL.

Starting Phase 1 today. I've got about 30-50 lbs to lose, and I know SBD has worked before at a higher weight. After dropping 100 dollars for the copay on one diabetes drug the other day, I'm hoping to get off that one at least. My other meds are generic and 5 dollars each, and I'm hoping to get off some of them, too.

I have my own equipment and every DVD made. I should go thru what I have and maybe at least do arms. I think I lugging the brace around is enough leg exercises:-) glad almond milk is OK. Just changed from 1% to almond 2 months ago. Thanks you for the info.

You might check into some chair exercises. I do those when my R.A. doesn't allow me to be ambulatory.

The almond milk is fine as long as it is the unsweetened (ie no sugar in the ingredients). Sorry to hear about the broken foot. Do you use a gym perchance? You can still do the rowing machine if so. Otherwise you do what you can until you heal up! emoticon to the team!

Always exercised in some way, but now have broken foot and gaining. I have 45lbs or so to lose. I bought the book several yrs ago but haven't really followed the plan. I'm not great at dieting but great with exercise. I am hoping to finally lose this weight... I am diabetic but now diet controlled. I use almond milk in my coffee, is this OK on phase 1. Need my coffee:-) I am excited to see others on spark people that are on south beach. Truely hoping to see weight loss on this plan.

I am joining this team again, because South Beach is a plan I know that has worked for me
in the past. I will do breakfast tomorrow, but promised someone a lunch date at a Thai restaurant, but I will do my best. Then, I am on it following the plan in the book as closely as
possible.

Hello everyone!

My name is Karyn and this is my first week on Phase One. So far, so good. Have to catch myself though, keep thinking fruit will be okay. I know it will come but it's amazing how much time you can be thinking about being careful what you eat when all of a sudden, it sneaks up on you. I managed to catch myself today though whenever it happened so that's a success to celebrate! Hope everyone has a great week!

Congratulations on the 2 pound weight loss. I love seeing the scale move down.

I would think it's the salt. Drink a lot of water and flush it out.

Down 1/2 a pound...but what's better is I spent most of the day at home before my shift and I did not have a bagel sandwich (or two, which usually happens), I did not pop popcorn, I did not eat chips. I ate 1 meal of my chili/hot dog concoction (too much sodium, though) and was good to go! It feels good not to have a food fest to feel bad about later!

It's Day 5 and still no weight loss...I do feel GREAT, though...but any ideas about the weight? I did have a bad moment yesterday - due to a patient that was in the hospital all day, I couldn't break away for food until later that night...went 25 hours without food, at all, since it was go-go-go from 6 am onwards that day. Anyway, had a take-out burrito for dinner that night. No cheese or rice, only meat and veggies...but there is that darn burrito and it's stupid carbs! I felt SO sick and bloated and then really gross this morning (probably from the 50,000 mg of sodium it had in it!). SOOOO not upset about it, though...back to keeping it real on SB as if it never happened because beating myself up about it hasn't gotten me far in the past, so F-you burrito, you weren't even that good and next time I'll be frying up some late-night eggs, instead :)

You will have to try some of the low carb alternatives for things you love like cheese crisps or pepperoni chips instead of real chips. Roasted garbanzo beans are good too. You will have some healthy bread options in phase 2.

On day 4, my first time on SB... I am a great cook, so having a new set of recipes is a great interest to me. I have been diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia so my Dr. suggested SB. I am doing OK... I am really feeling some carb withdrawels however. Feeling tired, nervous, craving chips/pasta and just overall feeling "not right". But it is much better than yesterday and this morning. Hoping do drop some lb's and bad eating habits. Sweets arent my thing, but I am a bread/chip carb-oholic. After I eat high sugar or carbs, within about 1.5 hrs I have a Blood sugar "crash" so I m hoping to control this.

But I am totally comitted and did some major shopping and organizing.I pre made quiche cups, salads, pre-packed protiens and bought low-fat cheese, veggies, hummus etc... Think I am ready to go the distance! Wish me luck

WB Eddy! I love using cabbage as a base and always keep the packaged cole slaw on hand. Between salad or stir fry, it comes in handy!

South Beach is fantastic for getting rid of the cravings, hunger, and the closer I am on plan the better I feel. Your salad sounded great.

Day 3 and I'm loving this feeling - I haven't been tired after a meal since I started this. Yesterday I was productive in the evening instead of getting home, eating and crashing. It feels SO good!

Hi, everyone. 2 days in to P1 and feeling good. Made a pot of chili today for dinner/lunches. I've been doing well with eggs in the AM at school and chicken for dinner, usually. Yesterday for dinner and today for lunch I had a chicken breast over a salad of shredded cabbage (cheap and for some reason is something I'm more prone to grab than if it was just chopped lettuce...don't know why!) with a toasted peanut dressing :)
