I have always struggled with weight. Have been on several diets...most of them work if you stick to them. I have admitted to have an addiction to sugar. I like sweets!! I can eat healthy food in healthy portions but I can get out of control with candy, cookies, cake and icecream. I have decide to try south beach diet as it will help me with sugar cravings. I started on Jan 2, 2009. So far it's been great controling my sugar eating habits. I especially happy to have found fatsecret where I can report to and have support from those facing similar situations.

south beach on line?
Hi Helen, I am on my second week on the south beach diet.
I am also doing it for my health. I have been following the book. It is an easy way to reference. I make my grocery list with the book at my side to make sure I only buy what I am able to eat. Ha have lost 14 in two weeks. Right here on fatsecret you can find and share recipes that other South Beach Dieters are sharing. I wish you success! Susie
