Well, this one works. Basically, it is an essence of all the things we have known all the way about the wrong and the right ways to eat, but have never been given the exact guidelines on how to get to the right place.
By following this program, which has been created by a famouse cardiologist, you will get a step-by-step guide on how to:
-break your bad eating habits
-free yourself from carbs addiction and cravings
-lose weight without going hungry
-achieve better health and energy levels
-feel good about yourself.
If you want to do yourself good, this is the way to do it. I have been following the South Beach Diet for a month now, and people are constantly commenting on my radiant looks and the improvements in my figure. After just one week I was wearing clothes that I thought I had said good-bye to forever! But the most amazing thing is that my husband, who hates any kind of discomford and restrictions associated with a diet, has become an adept and is thrilled to be reducing the lenght of his belt by a notch every couple of weeks.
This is a diet that has a sound medical background, brings amazing results and creates a minimum of discomfort. I recommend it to everyone who wants to lose weight and become a healthier and happier person. Enjoy!
Before reading the book my first thought was - just another Atkins/silly bikini diet but oh how wrong could I be. Firstly, it was not a good idea to call this a "diet". The word diet has come to mean something you go on then come off at a future date. Think of this as a way to get back to a good healthy way of eating. It's for life - not a quick fix to fit into your latest outfit. But it is something that will leave you feeling far healthier than before. I wish I had discovered it earlier in life.
Phase 1 lasts 2 weeks and is the most restrictive. It is not "no carbs" in Phase 1 but it is seriously restricted carbs. Where it differs to Atkins is it is also low on bad fats and the salt content is low too. The aim in the first 2 weeks is to rid you of the cravings for processed foods which we have all become too accustomed to, or in my case, to stabilise blood sugars. I also dropped 13 lbs in the first 2 weeks. Phase 2 you start to re-introduce carbs again. I wasn't craving chocolate in Phase 1 - what I longed for was a slice of seeded, wholemeal bread. That was the 1st carb I put back. First week of Phase 2 you add in 1 good carb & 1 fruit each day to your meal plan. The next week add another until you are up to 3 good carbs/3 fruits. If you stop losing weight just knock a carb out. In Phase 2 you lose 1 maybe 2 lbs a week - sometimes nothing. You just have to be patient and the weight will come off. I was already exercising more than required by the plan so didn't have to adjust that.Read more ›
The Phase One part of the diet is inspired! No carbs/fruit for two weeks which was an interesting theory - but it works ... no cravings, no hunger, no 'empty feeling' and no sleepless (hungry) nights! A bit of a breakthrough at the start of a diet.
I think this book is a well worth a read - especially at this price - and whether you follow the plan to the letter, or simply apply parts of it to your current eating habits/exercise regime you will definitely find yourself all the better for it!
I'm a big fan of The South Beach Diet. It helped me lose a lot of weight when nothing else worked. I felt comfortable losing the weight and looked great when I was done, rather than like a survivor of starvation. Whenever I gained a bit of weight since then, returning to Phase 1 quickly took it off.
But there was a problem: I clearly wasn't exercising enough. In the past, I've done a lot of walking and weight lifting . . . but I didn't get much benefit in terms of medical measures like reduced triglycerides. In fact, eating oatmeal and taking omega-3 supplements does more for my cholesterol level than exercise. I know that I need something different.
My eyes opened wide when I got to the section of this book that talked about how moderate amounts of walking (20 minutes every other day) with short intervals of fast movement spaced between moderate walking would do me more good for burning fat than doing all that walking that I used to do at one speed. Now, that sounded great!
Between walking days, you do some moderate body toning. Here is where I had some concerns about the book: The photographs show a lot of stress being put on the back. That's not a good idea for me: I have back problems. I'm not quite sure what to do, but I've ordered the DVD to see how these exercises are to be done and hope there will be detailed instructions there for people with bad backs.
