south beach diet

For the past three months I've been eating healthy via the south beach diet.
For the first two weeks you can't eat bread, pasta, potatos, fruit, or sweet vegetables. Basically I only ate meat and vegetables. This first phase is to stop cravings for unhealthy foods. All the recipes in the diet books are tasty and fairly easy to make.
The second phase allows you to add whole grain breads and pastas back into the diet, but in moderation. Fruits are also allowed.
The final phase is being mindful of what you are eating. Its not like counting calories, just remembering to eat healthy.

so far I've lost 20 pounds and it wasn't very hard to do. Smile

20 lbs? Nice!

Losing weight isn't really difficult. I just straight counted calories and kept mindful of the foods I ate, I also jogged like 20-30 miles a week. I lost 40 lbs in like 4 months.

RE: south beach diet

I've been eating less (basically I wait until I feel REALLY hungry before I eat... mostly)... and go outside moar. Riding bike is good, ice skating & rollerblading when I can. I haven't weighed myself or anything but I am noticeably thinner than I was a month ago. So I'll just be keeping this up then Smile

I don't know much about eating healthy though... and tbh I would get annoyed if I had to count calories all the time and only eat specific things. I'd rather make up for what I eat by sweating moar or something. Much more fun that way...

Nothing, fruits have lots of sugars. The first pase is getting rid of sugar cravings

40 pounds is really good! I would lose more if I exercised but I'm too lazy. Next semester I'm planning to use the exercise room at my college, if I have the time.

I dont count calories. I eat healthy food when I'm hungry and thats about it. Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner. And maybe a light dessert, it depends.

Ah ok, that makes sense.

Quote:Next semester I'm planning to use the exercise room at my college, if I have the time.
Exercise rooms are boring... riding bike outside is a lot more interesting... I wouldn't be able to stick to an exercise routine if it was boring. (As I haven't been able to thus far... until I started actually going outside moar).

Quote:Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner.
I have like maybe one actual meal a day, and maybe 1 or 2 snacks. Not usually more than that. I tried those "eat several small meals throughout the day" kind of things... that did absolutely nothing, and in fact may have even made it worse because I ended up eating when I wasn't really hungry... and thus ate more than I needed to. But everyone's different. I know this really skinny guy that eats a shitload of food every day and stays skinny.

RE: south beach diet

I can eat basically whatever I want and never gain any fat, lol. Though the fact that I work out relatively often and basically never pig out on unhealthy stuff doesn't hurt.
