General Diet Plans and Questions - WW or South Beach?

View Full Version : WW or South Beach?

09-09-2003, 12:39 AM
I'm trying to decide which one would be best. I keep waffling between the two. I've read the South Beach book and I know how weight watchers works. I just can't decide which one would be best for me. I've read posts in both the WW and SBD forums so I feel like I'm well informed. Has anyone tried both? Thanks!

JDD, I am doing both. i mix alot of my plans. in fact doing them and counting calories to. i like the SBD and i also like keeping the ww points . so if you want just do them. we are all so different i just always take plans and work them around me. good luck to you.. LaDean

Thanks! I guess I might try both. I suppose it can't hurt.

JB: My advice is to get on one and try it for several weeks and if you don't like it, try the other. You'll never know until you try!

JDD. GO FOR IT.. this is what i am doing and i am losing. so we just like i said take them and work them around us and our bodies. i think it will do ok for you. as with ww you eat what you want just points. the SBD you do after first phrase. so let me know how it goes. LaDean

Hi! I am currently on day 2 of south beach and I like it so far (easy to say at the beginning). I have done the WW points before, and it worked, but it was slow. The bonus there is I could eat pizza if I really wanted it. Pasta? Just count it. With SB (at least phase 1), there's not a whole lot of flexibility. I am trying SB because 90% of the weight I am carrying is in my belly and I hate it! Even on WW, it didn't seem to go away that much. I'm hoping this plan will help me cut the gut. Time will tell. Either way you go, I'm sure you will do well! Good luck!
