Hi everyone,
I am new to the south beach diet and don't know exactly of what I can eat and how much. Can anyone give me some information. Thank you

I highly recommend getting a cheap used copy of the book and reading it. Or try getting the pocket book for a quick start and borrow the book from the library. It is important to understand the diet you are doing before you start.

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!

Welcome to the site--you'll find lots of support and encouragement here. But I've got to say, I am always surprised when people announce that they are beginning a diet that they have no knowledge about. I am with Sararay--go read up about it yourself, and see if it sounds right to you. But this site isn't about other people telling you how to do it. We're here trying to get there ourselves, and encouraging each other on the journey. Good luck!!
I can do all things through Christ, who gives me strength.

I strongly recommend you get the book and read it in its entirety. In the meantime, here's a good website that will tell you what foods you can eat.

Best of luck!

Thanks everyone for a fast response. I wasn't sure if I was doing this whole thing right. Thank you KellyBo for the info. I have already purchased a book and have started reading up on the south beach diet. I do think that this diet just might help me. I am excited to be a part of the fatsecret. I know with the support from everyone, I won't feel alone, and I will try harder. Thank you

Have you lost weight on Atkins without exercise?
Just curious PerfectDove..... why would you revive a 4 year old post about Atkins and post a site that has nothing to do with Atkins? congrats on your weight loss and finding what works for you.

It never fails to amaze me.......
I bet that was interesting.. Rice and beans are a staple for me as well now, LOL . My choice though. I've learned a lot of new things in my 60's! This journey into getting healthy has been huge!

Calories?????
I started at about your weight 192. I'm female 65, have a smell frame and work at a desk all day but try to be fairly active when I'm not at work. I had to trim my calories down to averaging 1200 ...

trim down diet
Right, I wouldn't pay anyone. Find a plan that works and stick to it. There are lots of books at the library. Track your food on FS.
