South Beach Diet

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if anyone is on or has tried the south beach diet. I just ordered the book off amazon and was hoping someone would be able to give me their views, opinions and advice regarding this diet. I hate thinking about dieting because i love food and cooking. I never had to worry about my weight untill recently. I am just getting bigger by the minute. I know i need to start hitting up the gym again, but i also want a healthy yet tastey diet. Any help?

I have done it. I found the food quite enjoyable and also had fun preparing it.

 

The only negative was how expensive it was to buy some of the specialty stuff, it seemed like ym grocery bill was a lot higher.

 

But I still use some of recipies now :)

I've done the South Beach diet. I was able to lose 20 pounds in roughly 3 months. Did great as long as I stuck to it. Like any diet as soon as you go back to your old ways, the weight seems to sneak back. hissyfit.gifhissyfit.gifYou're allowed to eat a lot of really good food...things you could fix yourself...which is what I liked about it. I was relatively easy to do. Just stick to it and you'll do great! Good luck!

I've done SB before and I'm actually going to start it again on Friday!! The last time I tried it, I lost 12 lbs in the first 2 weeks. I didn't really have time to prepare many of the recipes but the ones I tried were good. I pretty much did my own thing bu just having salads or a protein with veggies for dinner, etc....After not eating carbs for about 3-4 days, it got much easier and I actually lost the cravings for carbs (and I have a major sweet tooth). The only downfall (IMO) is once you fall off the wagon and have some carbs, its almost insatiable...I couldn't stop eating carbs (the bad carbs) and I gained almost double of what I lost. So its very important that after Phase 1, one gets used to eating the good carbs and continue with the program for the long haul (a lifestyle change) and not just temporary (this is what I plan to do, once again!).

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
