My doctor highly recommends the South Beach Diet.
It's a more moderate version of the low-carb Atkins diet.
During the first two weeks, you can eat only protein foods - no carbs.
After that first stage, you can add "healthy" carbs back into your diet - whole grain bread and pasta, fruits and vegetables.
Yes, you can drink sparkling water and any other calorie-free beverage.

South Beach Diet?

I loved the South Beach and lost 14lbs in 2 weeks and managed to keep it off. I felt so much healthier as it helped me stop eating processed foods and also started me eating more veg and salads....I enjoyed it and you can drink sparkling water!

South Beach Diet?

The south beach diet is great.
My family has adopted it as a permanent diet.
The most critical aspect of the diet is the limit on carbohydrates.
You must follow the guidelines strictly, for it to work for you.

Recently we purchased "The South Beach Diet Quick & Easy Cookbook".
It is full of great thirty minute recipes.

South beach is good, you will feel tired the first few days on it due to lack of carbs but that goes away after about a week. Sparking water is ok

I know at least 3 people who have done well with South Beach.
I'm on Weight Watchers mysefl; I need the support of meetings.
I've lost pounds since April 2, and i love what I am eating.

Plain water is best.
Watch the sparkling water for sodium content and carbonation.

South Beach Diet?

Postby Francesco » Thu Apr 27, 2017 11:18 am

I found a site that gives a very good review of the South Beach Diet. Here are the advantages and disadvantages from the article:

The advantages of the South Beach Diet include:

The diet is fairly balanced after the initial strict phase

The diet does not rely on high levels of saturated fat

There is no calorie or fat counting on this diet

The diet encourages regular meals and snacks

The disadvantages of the diet include:

The diet is very demanding for those that are accustomed to carb-rich diets

This diet can work out to be quite expensive and time consuming

Lapsing into old eating habits may result in speedy weight gain. This has to be a new way of life.


Hope this answer helps.

Take care,
