Hello everyone,
My name is Tracie, I am a seems like a lifetime member of the SB diet. One of my girlfriends introduced me to it may-be three or so years ago and I have loved it every since (not always been faithful). It just seems to work for me, little carbs and lots of meat, fruit and veggies, that's what I like to eat anyhow. Well, the problem for me seems to be that I fall of the wagon on the weekends and slip into well I screwed up all weekend might as well start back up next week. So I have been skimming the surface of the south beach diet for about 4-5 months now, not really trying as hard as I should. I can't blame any one thing I am just looking for instant gradification, I want my body to reflect that I have been good all day. But, by the end of the week I just stay the same (or gain 1-2 lbs.). I think for me I need to stablize my eating and stop skimming the surface and just dive in face first. I know the problem for me has to be diet, diet, diet because I think that I am fairly an active person.
What I am hoping to get from this site is may-be a bit of incouragement, some accountablility, and some great meal ideas. We'll see how it goes.

I have been having the same problem. My conclusion is that I'm going to work on my abs every time I work out. I have started at 300 sit ups and some times I do 400. You can mix it up or just do one type. It really is not that hard. I think I am starting to see some results. good luck

Chocolate Cheesecake recipe
You know I thought the same thing. I know that if you over do it on the splenda that is all you will taste so I just went with 1 1/2 cups and it still had the taste of splenda so I would have said to just add 1 1/4 cups and test that but you have already made it so what I did was to top it with other stuff like frozen whipped cream SB of course and chopped walnuts or pecans that was very good! good luck

Carbs in Phase 2?
Funny cause I asked the same question at the beginning of the week and someone replyed with "try out one at a time if it starts to slow your weight loss then switch it up and eat less of that thing fruit or bread. Because every one is different in the way we matabilise food so you have to reintroduce each one slowly.
Sorry no concrete answer.
But as far as the bannana I think that I read that they should be banned through the rest of your life because thay have toooo much sugar (may-be just half is what I say)Smile

Phase 1 SBD Buddy?
No, that is not cheating that's perfectly fine. Any combo of meats(You know what I mean of the lean, no sugary type) and most cheeses (again lower fat) is great I do the same thing some times.
I really like eggs but since I have been on phase 1 for almost 2 weeks I am getting tired of them. Thankfully Klow (on this site) gave me a recipe for green chili cassarole a couple of years ago and I almost live on it. It's like a chili rieno but in cassarole form and a bit spicy. I wish you willpower, you are doing great!Smile
