Hello everyone- I am curious to how well this sbd would work for me... I am currently doing low carb with a catch- I am a vegetarian:carrot:. Is south beach vegetarian compatable? I have done atkins before when I used to eat meat, now I am basically doing the same things such with meat substitutes(soy based and such)...

Any info would be appreciated!!! :)

if you eat eggs and dairy products it's very do able.

I only eat one meat meal a day. I have eggs for breakfast with vegtable juice, snack on almonds, string cheese and cottage cheese throughout the day and have a large salad with cheese for lunch. I usually only eat meat with dinner and even then only have a little.

If you;re already successful doing low carb I don't see how your couldn't do SBD.

If you google "vegetarian south beach" you will find alot of information and even entire websites geared toward vegetarians on south beach.

rdw, we have several Beachers here who are vegetarian and are doing very well following the plan. I like to use Morningstar crumbles in recipes that call for ground beef, and use many other Morningstar and BocaBurger products. This plan is very adaptable to a vegetarian diet.

I eat meat, but I realize...I eat a lot less meat than I used to. Better for ya, less expensive!

I think you will do well on SB. It is very compatible with a vegetarian lifestyle.

Thanks everyone! I think I will continue to do low carb for the next couple of days and go get the book this morning so I can start reading it... Sounds like this may be the plan for me!

Think I will check with the local library as well to see if they have it so I don't have to purchase it!
