I did Southbeach a couple years ago. I don't believe beans are OK for Phase 1, but you can have them in phase 2, in limited amounts (1/2 cup is one serving). Onions are fine. Correct me if I am wrong, but that is what I remember.

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!

I found a great site that list each food permitted at each phase, and even gives a list of which veggies have less carbs than others! It also has recipes so ENJOY!

I had black beans and kidney beans during phase 1 and still lost just fine. I think the book/websites only said to skip pinto beans.
