Mr. Dump and I are giving the South Beach Diet a shot, starting yesterday. I think it’s pretty practical, and I’m hoping the 2 week kickoff period is more painless than I expect it to be. I think I can do it, but it will mean more cooking around this place.
I’m a carb addict. I will not deny it. So that’s a big problem that the next two weeks should address (no carbs). Then in the third week we can add back some “good” carbs. Apples, whole grain stuff. You know, what we *should* be eating. I have already decided that the carb I’m going to add back will be whole grain pasta.
We still have to work out the kinks on things like portions. For lunch I made myself a 2-egg omlette (well, more like scrambled eggs, which I prefer) but I think maybe I should have used 3 eggs.
Anyone else ever do South Beach? Do you have any menu suggestions for phase 1?
