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.
325405 tn?1262290178 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 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?
1097839 tn?1344579942 hi all I decided I wanted to lose weight at Christmas. I've been ill with an underactive thyroid and put on about 20 pounds over the last 12 months. I hadn't really noticed it creeping on till christmas because I'd been so ill I was just in a bit of a daze! But since then I've been really paying attention to what I eat and willing the scales to go in the other direction but without much success yet. At least I seem to have stopped gaining.
Avatar f tn Are you doing South Beach Diet or something? I would say back off and try a general low cal. diet like Weight Watchers instead of something as drastic as SB. Try to eat a balanced diet every day.
Avatar n tn I had never ever gone on a diet until just a month ago. I had come across the South Beach diet book and thought, heck, why not try and see what happens when I skip carbs for two weeks. Within a week my tummy disappeared which had been resistant to exercise somehow since childbirth. I already switched back to eating some fruit per day after the first week, so it was just a one-week diet - but people keep asking me whether I take some magic pills.
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.

676032 tn?1315674063 Take a peek at the Zone diet and South Beach plan - this may help you with weight issues if that is what you are asking about. What way do you mean "help" with hypothyroidism?
484844 tn?1253968693 ve been on the South Beach diet before. I liked the emphasis on good fats, but found the 1st 2 weeks, where your carb intake is so severely restricted, to be beyond what I wanted to do. I've heard its supposed to be very good for people with insulin resistance, but I couldn't stay on it long enough to gain any real results. I did lose weight, but regained it pretty quickly when I couldn't make it into a life long change.
Avatar n tn Depending on a patient’s particular profile, I suggest either the Dean Ornish heart-reversal diet or the South Beach Diet. If you know anything about heart disease, the Ornish diet is better because it most effectively cleanses the system of excess fat.The South Beach Diet is usually for those with risk factors but no known heart disease. This diet allows more latitude and can still get a person to the recommended targets.
1207048 tn?1282174304 Last Monday my husband & I started Phase 1 of the South Beach diet. Phase 1 is super strict, no sugar or carbs of any kind for 2 weeks. We have done very well on it, and I'm very proud of myself for not cheating at all, even though I'm still making food with carbs for the kids. And, you are allowed 75 sugar calories a day, but I've only been having 25 worth of sugar in my coffee. In the 8 days we have been on it I have lost 6 pounds and DH has lost 8.
Avatar m tn Lots of opinions ("professional" and other) re diet/nutrition. What is working for me now, is a "South Beach/Zone" type of diet which is basically lean meat/fish and vegetables. Almost no starch (bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, etc) and very little fruit -- maybe one portion three times a week. With this diet -- and copious amounts of exercise -- Ive lost ten pounds, brought my cholesterol down from 200 to 150 and normalized my bp from pre-hypertensive.

Avatar f tn Try South Beach and stay on the induction phase for 2-4 weeks instead of just one. That will jump start you. Then probably 2lbs a week after that. To make your goal. Ambitious goal, but not impossible.
Avatar n tn I finally lost my hypothyroid weight after several years initially using the South Beach diet. It took me about 4-5 months before I realized the results and assured they were profound. I second the comment regarding taking your meds at a consistent time. This allows your body to maintain equilibrium and perform internal processes more efficiently, thus giving you more energy to burn calories and feel better as a whole.

Avatar f tn I like fruit so I chose this diet program. Another one is the South Beach Diet that I did as well, that one is good too but I miss fruit, LOL! Good luck!

Tbd A great way to do this is by the Agaston or South beach diet . You are gauranteed to lose weight if you follow each of the stages . It provides a structured way to lose weight but also to keep it off .
Avatar f tn I am not yet on medication, but instead my doctor suggested I follow the South Beach Diet. In a short time, I have already lost 5 pounds. I had a very hard time losing weight in the past, but this seems to be working better than others I have tried. You have the right idea about cutting the carbs. Another prediabetes book I have been reading mentioned shooting for less than 30g per meal. South Beach takes you even further during Phase 1 which lasts the first two weeks...

1110747 tn?1295844043 I am going to start the south beach diet. The first two weeks are low carb. Then u can switch to the next phase which is where u add in healthy carbs. And u stay on that phase I beleieve until you lose the weight u want to lose. Then you switch to the last phase where you add in your occasional sweet treat i beleieve. I have to purchase the book still. This is all what I have heard from friends that have done it and lost all their extra weight. Good luck with everything!
