I was thinking of trying this way of eating,so aside from here,I haven't found any information yet.Are there any really good books that list everything you need to know...or can I get all the information from this site? I'll be looking into the library for now(I couldn't find much in my short search and I'm not sure what to even look for),so any book recommedations would be greatly appreciated :)

I've seen the phase 1 food list,and will glance more in depth,but I'm looking for like how long phase 1 lasts and so on.

Before you start SBD, you need to read the book: The South Beach Diet by Arthur Agatston, M.D. If you get the paperback version, the lists (foods to enjoy/avoid) are more up-to-date. You can always find the latest lists here in our FAQ. :)

You may also find reading the 3 Fat Chicks book helpful as well...they review SBD, give you pointers on how to be successful, and lots of info to help you decide if the plan (or the many others in the book) are for you. It's fabulous and, of course, was written by the three sisters who started this very website! :D

Phase 1 should last only 2 weeks.
