Today was my first day on the South Beach diet. I lost 43lbs from 2004 to 2006 and am now restarting from stratch.

My breakfast was two scrambled eggs and two turkey bacon, sprayed the pan with a touch of PAM, coffee with sweetner

Lunch was chicken breast with a Greek salad with 1 tbsp EVOO

Snack was a cheese string

Dinner was leftover lunch. I have had several bottles of water today and am going to exercise shortly. I missed my morning snack as I had an appt but I will definetely bring a snack in my purse from now on.

Dessert was a FF NSA Creamsicle

I hope I can leave this post here as I can't seem to start a blog and later will include this post

Thanks for reading!

:welcome: TO THE BEACH!

Your plan sounds good! Come join us in the daily threads, and check in daily. That helps me to stay on plan!

Your meals sound ok. Perhaps veggies to the egg or grab some v8 for breakfast? And for lunch and or dinner throw in some skim or 1% milk! Remember to get your dairy in there! And veggies! You need more than what you ate! *hhmmm, not one to talk Lori!!!! LOL

Thank you.

I forgot to add that I had a tomato with each meal. I plan in getting more veggies and the milk at meals is a great idea. I also have V8 cans in the fridge which I will start tomorrow, I didn't want to risk it before my appt this morning,lol

Yes previous weightloss was on the SBD. Having not read the original book in quite some time, I know I need to revise my eating a bit.

Today was a bit more substantial.

Breakfast was two eggs, two turkey bacon, coffee with sweetner

S: Part skim mozzerella cheese string

L: 4 oz water packed tuna on a bed of romaine leaves, 1/2 cucumber, 1 wedge Light Laughing Cow,15 almonds, side salad of romaine lettuce and EVOO

S: 8 oz skim milk

D: Talapia made with PAM, 2 cups lettuce with cucumber and tomato

Dessert: FF NSA Creamsicle...

Lots of water

I am noticing a slight burning in my tummy. Could that be from the restrictions of Phase 1?

Brock, any chance of adding V8 to breakfast? You need more veggies and more dairy in your diet!

you are light on veggies (none at breakfast) i only see milk once. I see no beans... what was your good fat at dinner?

what was your pm snack? that creamsicle is a sweet treat....

what was your coffee sweetener??? i use sugar free syrups...

My good fat at dinner was EVOO on my salad. In terms of PM snacks, what else can I try?

Sweetner was Sugar Twin...

It really seems like you are light on the veggies. - When I have eggs for breakfast it usually also involves tomatoes, spinach, zucchini, mushrooms and maybe onions with my eggs. - you could also have steamed asparagus on the side.

You could have a snack of hummus with bell pepper or light laughing cow cheese with celery. - I prefer to have my nuts as a snack in the evening but I am typically in my car at that time so that is just the easiest thing for me to take along. - I keep single servings of nuts in the car so I don't get carried away.

Yes I will buy some more veggies today. Good idea on the nuts, my first time on the SBD I would count out my nuts into zippies as they are easy to overdo. Thank you for the replies...
