When I first tried the South Beach Diet when that was the hot new diet I did good but I couldn't get thru those first 2-3 weeks without carbs. They said you would get headaches but after a few days they would go away. I had horrible headaches for 3 days in a row and couldn't stand it anymore! So hoping it's better this time around.
there are plenty of low carb and sugar free options out there these days to satisfy your sweet tooth (carb smart rocky road ice cream, or russell stover candies), but you're not supposed to partake in them during induction. Also be warned that the sugar alcohols used to sweeten them can have a laxative effect, so use in moderation and see how your body reacts.
basically you have to suffer for about two weeks but after that you'll start feeling much better and cravings become fewer and fewer!
