484844 tn?1253968693 I have friends who have done the South Beach diet who were very successful at losing weight and did keep it off. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Have you talked with your parents and enlisted their help with your quest to lose weight? Do you mean you've tried the South Beach Diet? Have you followed it correctly? Are you exercising, as well as following the diet? Exercise is an important part of losing weight, because it helps build muscles and muscles burn the fat.
Avatar f tn They are not losing large amounts of weight quickly. They are building more muscle( increased weight) and losing fat. Eventually they plateau and start to lose all over again. When I first started working out I vomited by all the hard work I was doing. It is painful but I kept going. All of sudden after 4 weeks it was routine and I was just doing it.Please take good care of yourself and maybe the Body for Life diet or South Beach.
Avatar n tn I lost weight quickly on the South Beach diet- you can just get the books- but it is a little daunting getting use to all the new cooking/new recipes- I love to cook, but it is a little bit of work- of course it is best if you can at least go for walks for some exercise...
193609 tn?1292180293 It has always been hard for me to lose weight (now I know why) but I am considering the South Beach Diet. Anyone have good luck with that diet? I already work out, so now I just need to make sure my diet is in check. I have been counting calories and staying under 1300 but I don't think that is going to be most effective for me now that I know that i have severe PCOS. Doc told me that my testosterone level was high, even for a man!!
Avatar n tn I'm actually losing weight (7 lbs. in one month) on the South Beach Diet, but the thing I'm concerned about is loose flabby skin after weight loss. I read that with the hCG shots your skin also tightens up and so you don't have the flabby skin left ( which is very unsightly). I am 63, so my skin elasticity is pretty well shot - well it does stretch, it just doesn't go back!!! Can anyone who has used the hCG shots tell me if it does help the skin to tighten back up?
Avatar f tn I just want to report how thrilled I am with the south beach diet! It has been a real struggle for me to lose weight the past year or two. And, not only losing weight, but Gaining a tremendous amount! I tried so many other plans with no success...a friend of mine told me about South Beach...and I said, "hey! that is one that I haven't tried yet!"...so, even though I was skeptical I bought the book...Here I am 12 pounds lighter and feeling great!
1294700 tn?1282170038 I'd like to hear from those of you who have had success on the South Beach diet. I've been on it for a week (Phase 1) and have lost 5.5 lbs so far! I need to keep the momentum going, so would like to hear from those of you who it has worked for! I have a total of 50 lbs to lose (well, 45 now!).
Avatar n tn Am on the south beach diet and am type 2 diabetic. My glucose reading is 87 which is low for me. Am feeling very shaky and weak. Ok to have something with sugar and not ruin my efforts?
Avatar f tn This is not my first attempt at losing weight. I have done atkins, south beach, etc... All with no luck. Are there any supplements i should be tqking to help my metabolism? Should I look into weightloss meds? Or even surgery? Can a woman with PCOS even think of losing weight or am I fighting a losing battle? If weight loss is possible, then how?
Avatar n tn Often, losing weight and/or adopting a lower carb diet like the South Beach Diet can be effective in bringing cycles back. That may be a consideration in conjunction with metformin.
Avatar f tn well i just started my diet today, i think i am stickin with south beach, i have about 80lbs to lose, any advise or other alternatives, going to gym too......
Avatar f tn I am a 59 year old female who has not lost any weight on an extremely low carb (south beach) diet after 4 weeks. Several years ago, I was successful losing weight using this diet, but not now. I had a benign brain tumor removed successfully in 2006 (after the weigth loss), and the surgery caused some numbness in my legs which gives me problems exercising, but I walk daily. I have been gaining weight since the 2006 surgery, and am at a loss as to what to do now. What's wrong?
Avatar m tn Will I loss wtg by doing South Beach Diet on the HCG drops
Avatar n tn I think it great if you are losing your weight with south hampton health services. Years ago I went their after my pregnancy. It was great. I recently called them to see if they would work with someone out of state and they said no. Of course I was heartbroken because this was the best diet ever for me. I am in need of losing weight and I am searching for a program like it but cant find the diet if anyone could send me a copy of the diet they use I would greatly apprecaite it.
Avatar f tn I have heard of some women having really great luck with the South Beach diet. It not only helped them lose weight, but assisted in their body's ability to balance the insulin intolerance that contributed to the PCOS.
682206 tn?1226892115 I am down five lbs after being on Metformin for 1 week and 1 week of south beach diet 1
Avatar f tn i asked my oncologist sure his answer was no he dont want to jeopardize but some researches said that is helping with the breast cancer so i dont know what to do if somebody knows or did hcg with cancer i would like to have their opinion bec ause for more diet that i do i dont lose weight i already been in jenny craigh and south beach diet i am desperate and depresse with this situation
Avatar n tn I agree with Verona and also urge you to consider a diet (life plan change) as the Zone diet or SOuth Beach Both these diets control insulin and are very helpful with weight in hypothyroid patients. I found the Zone plan to be better. I have taken off about 7 to 10 pounds - I still bloat at times - but I do feel better.
393685 tn?1425812522 the SOUTH BEACH diet plan. I have lost 12 pounds in a little over 5 weeks. I have slowed down a bit, because I went to phase 2 which says it will slow down, but I am able to enjoy my carbs also which keeps me honest! I have been struggling for so long and reached my highest weight of 148 pounds back in September/October. I am only 5'1" so it was very uncomfortable and had to buy new clothes in big sizes. I am down to 136 and want to get down to about 125-128.
193609 tn?1292180293 Just had to share! Oh, and I am starting the South Beach diet on Tuesday, since it is supposed to be best for people with PCOS!
Avatar f tn I just have to say again, how happy I am doing the South Beach diet! It is sooooo easy! I just want to be a source of inspiration for anyone who is trying it out! As I said in another post, nothing was working for me. This WORKS! If you follow the plan correctly it is not a fad diet. It is a way of life. You eliminate carbs the first 2 weeks and after that you slowly reintroduce them.
1466015 tn?1286304436 The smoothie is just plain easy and I have no clue why its working. Either way, you will lose weight if you try one of these approaches. The south beach diet can also be used if your cooking for your kids and husband. They may not like it that much, but the meals are heathy and you can add a bit more for them if it is needed. Then again, if they too have picked up extra weight, it won't hurt them to lose the weight either. Do it together as a family.
Avatar f tn I like the paleo diet. My weight loss had stalled for a long time, and now I'm losing again on the paleo diet. There's a lot of information out there about the paleo diet, nowadays. A book called The Paleo Approach is a good introduction. I also like the PaleoMom website, and she also has a book that has just come out. Nom Nom Paleo is another good source. In effect, the paleo diet is a low-carb diet, because you don't eat any grains.
Avatar f tn She has recently done south beach for one month and followed it religiously. She lost practically no weight. She also exercise at least five times a week for an hour and a half. She is very frustrated and I don't have any answers. Unfortunately, her doctors over the years don't seem to be able to help. Should we be looking at type of insulin. Does high protein help? Her weight is in her back across her shoulders and stomach.
