Hi, I'm on day 3 of phase 1, doing o.k. but confused about having milk. On my phase 1 guidelines it says no milk but on the list of allowed foods it says you can have ff milk and soy milk and ff half and half in coffee. Did any of you have milk or half and half? i really need my coffee! but want to make sure I'm following it right. Thanks!

It was updated to include Skim or 1% milk. I don't remember if there was a qty limit.

I first tried South Beach back in '03 and then it was "no milk." But I later remember reading something that said milk was now OK for phase 1, as long as you kept it fat free. I'm not sure if newer additions of the book have updated this or not. As for FF half and half in coffee, I remember thinking this was always OK. I believe it's even included in the sample meal plans in the book.

Just watch the fat content in the dairy and you should be fine. I personally stick to FF Milk and do a combo of FF cheese and 2% cheese. Honestly, I love cheese but FF stuff tastes so horrible. 2% is a good compromise for me.

Fat-free/skim or Low-fat light/1% are (G)ood on all three phases of SBD. (G)ood means that it may be eaten regularly.

Information is correct, it was updated to allow those milks. I did not drink milk on phase 1 only because I was also counting calories and wanting to see how different foods effected me since I have food allergies and intolerances. Good luck to you! Keep asking questions too, there are so many helpful people here!

Milk isn't included in my South Beach book but maybe I bought an old one. I am using non-dairy creamer in my coffee.

you would be better off using 1/2 adn 1/2 or skim milk in your coffee...less processed

Everything I have read has said no milk for the first two weeks. I don't know for sure. I could have read old things. I did not have milk for the first two weeks. Good Luck. I just finished the first two weeks. It's not easy. But I am also over the cravings for sweets. Now I just want something different for breakfast.

the no milk has been revised to 1 serving per day and that should be skim or 1%
