South Beach is not the same as LA Weightloss and there are many restrictions in prepared food.
Tomato soup and Progresso Lentil canned soupsare both allowed in Phase I. You can make the tomato with skim milk for extra nutrition. SF Puddings are not allowed (cornstarch) but sf Jello is fine. Chicken and broccoli would be fine if you make it yourself; Chinese sauces are loaded with salt, cornstarch and MSG.
Check out The Revised Food List in the FAQ Section for the allowed Phase I Foods. There are also lots of great recipes in the Phase I Recipe Sections.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?
