South beach diet foods phase 3

Common Questions and Answers about South beach diet foods phase 3


Avatar n tn I have PCOS with insulin resistance and had tried to conceive for 5 years (with one miscarriage 3 years into that)and got pregnant the first cycle on South Beach (south beach rids your body of insulin resistance in the first phase)and am now almost 21 weeks. I wish you the best of luck with it. Let us know how much you lose.
1097839 tn?1344583542 I don't want to go on a diet as such because I don't really believe in them but I'm starting the South Beach Diet today because that seems to be more about healthy eating generally and I'm excited about possibly seeing a nice big drop in phase 1 over the first 2 weeks. Can anyone else share any experiences they've had with South Beach? I'm also interested in anyone else's experiences with hypothyroidism and trying to lose weight.
Avatar n tn I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?
251922 tn?1193786078 That is right in line w/ what Dr. S. said it should be. I can not wait to expand to the phase 3 diet however I plan to follow that close as well becuse Dr. S says it is crucial for long term success. Just want to share this as I found it so awsome. I have a off road race truck with a 5 point seatbelt system that was set to my size. I got in the truck today and the belt was over 7 inches loose !! Totally unbelivable...............................I'm shrinking fast,.
Avatar n tn No joke, it has taken me 3 months, to lose 3 stinkin' pounds. I started at a 1200 calorie diet and dropped down to a 900 and work out (kickboxing class) 3 times a week (for an hour) and sweat my BUTT and yet I still managed to gain weight!!! I really don't eat meat so I wonder if this is my problem. I will eat chicken when I do this diet but not real happy about it. I just don't like meat.
Avatar f tn Can you maintain your weight afterwards? 3 months ago, before I heard about HCG I attempted a 500 Calorie diet to reduce the affects of RA(Rhuematoid Arthritis). Actually I wanted to FAST because having been under a 14 day medically supervised fast (water only) 3 years ago, I knew what miraculous results I got. I was close to wheelchair bound when I checked in, but came out 24 days later with no Arthritis symptoms at all (and I lost 16 lbs).
Avatar n tn What you are doing though, sounds pretty similar to the South Beach diet, but SBD does NOT put you in ketosis and (after the first 2 weeks) encourages a balance of healthy whole grains, fruits, tons of veggies, and a moderate amount of protein. (the first 2 weeks are admittedly limited as to grain/fruit intake). SBD never counts carbs or restricts you in the 2nd or 3rd phase. Generous portions of allowed foods mean no measuring, either. Healthy fats are also in the plan.
544292 tn?1268886268 Welcome Tramadol Warriors! Fred wrtes, "I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
Avatar f tn If you are looking for information on this you could look at the maintenanbce phase of the Atkins Diet, South Beach Diet (this is mediteranean style eating - but without the bread and pasta), or Diabetes Solutions - Dr. Richard Bernstein. Make sure fats are in their natural form (as in nuts, full fat dairy, meats, avocados, etc). and not manmade - trans fats. Are you able to exercise regularly.
325405 tn?1262293778 My doctor recommended South Beach diet and thinks with diabetes it is an excellent diet to pick since it focuses on carbs and lean meats and watching fats as well as carbs. I think I will skip the phase I of the South Beach diet... my blood sugar levels were going too low when I tried it the first day. So, I am starting on Phase II instead, and my sugar levels are normal now.
Avatar m tn // Typical bfaksts were (1) egg whites and salads with olive oil/vinegar dressing; (2) sardines and salad or steamed vegetables; (3) sometimes oatmeal and eggwhites. Typical lunch or dinners: (1) Broiled fish and bag of steamed vegetables or salad; (2) Can of red Salmon and bag of steamed vegetables or salad; (3) White Meat Turkey Burger and bag of steamed vegetables or salad. Snacks: mostly almonds and other nuts.
Avatar n tn I am an Atkins dieter and have followed the diet off and on for about 3 years now. Watching carbs just seems easier to me than having to count fat grams, calories, fiber intake and all the other stuff. Guess my brain just can't handle all that complication at once!!! I only wish I could get my ketone levels to 80 or higher in 2 days!!! It takes me about a week of staying below 20 carbs per day to get to a level of 40.
Avatar n tn ( scarred me but they said its highly unlikely i have it and its just routine checking so i shouldnt be worried, i am still freaked out about it. I was doing south beach for a long time, phase 1 of the plan more than the recommended 2 weeks so maybe its just a nutritional thing. Or is it possible it could be pre-diabetes? thanx everyone for your support and help. I really appreciate it!
Avatar f tn I am about 40 pounds over weight and decided to try the South Beach diet again to get healthy. After two weeks on Phase 1, I felt like a new person. I realized that I hadn't been eating any gluten for two weeks and my intestinal issues disappeared, I had energy, my depression had lifted, and I was sleeping better. After visiting a Gastroenterologist I was instructed to eat gluten once again for four days and then get a blood panel.
Avatar f tn Currently looking for a new neurologist. Recently I started the South Beach diet and noticed that during phase 1 of the diet where you eliminated bread and fruit, I started to feel better. However after the two weeks of phase one I started phase two where I started eating fruits and breads again and the head pressure came back. I am unsure as to what I can do. I have seen everyone I could see and I just need someone’s advice on what to do now.
921323 tn?1268679412 2) Eat breakfast. Your mother was right. 3) Drink water. Don't focus on eight glasses a day. Four should do it. 4) Buy some good coffee and drink it black. Don't waste your money on caramel mocha whipped calorie bombs. A simple cup of good coffee barely has any calories. 5) Cut out soda. The key point here is to stop drinking soda rather than switching to diet soda. Some studies even suggest that drinking diet soda can result in weight gain too. 6) Soup is good food.
Avatar n tn 2 would be the 'gorge' days), so Days 3-5 would be the first 3 days on the 500 calorie diet. I'm not worried about the headaches, cuz I'm VERY resistant when it comes to headaches... ...but I'm just worried about EXTREME dizziness/fainting, HUNGER, and concentration... my advisor said that the faintness is no very bad (I freak cuz b4 my hysterectomy I used to suffer from EXTREM Reactive Hypoglycemia - meaning I'd be 100% totally fine...
393685 tn?1425816122 This is what has worked best for me as well. Actually, the South Beach Diet has helped me in the past to lost weight. I have struggled this year because of going Hyper T to Hypo T. Seem to crave the carbs more. But when I stick to the South Beach diet as well as incorporate mini meals throughout the day so my blood sugar levels stay stabalized, I feel so much better.
Avatar n tn and i have a comment for her and you (in case you decide to too) please be careful with those south beach diet foods...some are VERY HIGH in sodium! that is the last thing girls like us need to do- fix one problem while creating another one! good luck to you all!!! and congratulations on the commitments and progress you've made and stuck to so far!
649848 tn?1534637300 Then Phase 3 you can do their modified diet, but I'm planning on switching to South Beach Diet after that because I've done that before and I think its a very healthy way to eat. Wishing everyone a great week.
8540799 tn?1398623196 It's not easy but it works. I follow the South beach Diet phase 1 and 2 only as well as the 17 day diet book. I adopted this for a healthy lifestyle and not so much to loose weight. I kind of live off of these two books and stick to the recipes, mixing the two concepts and menus together. I am not a rep for anyone, I'm not trying to sell or advertise for anyone and my solutions may not work for you. Keep in mind I also have hypoglycemia so it is a double whammy for me.
Avatar f tn I ordered a book from Amazon Insulin Resistant diet and it is balancing like the south beach diet and the zone diet being one very familiar with diets over the many years I do think the Insulin Resistance diet is a very good one I use stevia as a sweetner and HR also recommended for morning coffee which I drink decaf lactosa or something like that but I have not found it here I thank you all for your always sincere comments it means a lot to me as here we do not have support groups and I
Avatar n tn I was eating very healthy too and excercising alot. My doctor suggested following the south beach diet. I was able to loose all the weight, I mean 27 lbs in 2 months, it was easy to follow. I have maintained it by following the first 2 weeks plan and every once and a while eating other things for a few days, I havent gained it back.
568322 tn?1370169040 I will give you one piece of advice, Up to you what you do with it. You may want to look into the Rosedale diet. It is similar to South Beach but is more focused on Leptin resistance. It has a higher good oil content. Jim - In my three years at Med Help fortunately it’s quite rare that someone takes such a personal and classless cheap-shot at someone’s disclosed medical issues with a such a mocking tone.
233616 tn?1312790796 Now, three months later, I may need to start it up again; my blood sugar is getting out of control again, independent of diet. -------------- I don't know how much effort you want to put into diet, but if you haven't already tried something as carb restrictive as "Phase I" of the South Beach diet, you might want to -- but be warned, it's pretty carb restrictive meaning for example, no bread, rice, or alcohol and limited fruit.
Avatar n tn Granted, the 500 cal regime can make one very creative (or else!) and the following Phase 3 is so much like the Atkins diet, much of this sounds familiar to all of us. I admit that satisfied hcg users can become a bit "evangelical" in their zeal to educate the world, and to an empirical mind such as yours, Benny, can easily be aggravating. Use common sense, examine the data, and if you want, or need, try the plan yourself.
Avatar m tn Yup, sounds like me..... Same scenero....Even South Beach isn't budging this stuborn weight much beyond phase 1.... (I think I miss my Riba & Interferon Diet)... NOT...LoL but............................ mmm... but what if your too lazy to work out like that... Got an easier Remidy for folks like me??? I Hope, I Hope, I Hope,.....
Avatar n tn Once I adjusted to those changes I experienced less mood swings, and felt better overall. I continued making positive changes to my diet by eating healthier foods and rich or starchy foods only in moderation. Eventually, I made a full transition into a low carbohydrate lifestyle (better known as the "Dr. Atkins" dietary plan.) This above all, made the greatest impact on my weight loss (approx. 30lbs.) I have a long way to go before I reach a "healthy" weight.
Avatar n tn Fasting is actually easier than doing a 500 Calorie diet WITHOUT HCG. When you are eating 'some foods' your body is craving more, except on HCG. When you are not eating at all, hunger pangs go totally away after 4-5 days.
