that is what is the guideline for SBD approved foods. If you look at that Kashi it is too high in sugar to be considered "legal" for this diet.
These are the SBD approved cereals that I copied and pasted from the official web site www.southbeachdiet.com:
Also above these choices, it says " Use sparingly"
Cereal-Fiber One, Kellogg's Extra-Fiber All Bran, oatmeal (not instant), other high-fiber, Uncle Sam
I take this to mean that when you do add carbs back in it should be done with those carbs that won't have the glycemic index affect of raising your blood sugar. I have been really careful about this. I have really monitored my weight closely while I am seeing how certain foods I add back in will affect my weight lose.
I have only had slow cooking oatmeal a couple of times in the past 26 days.
My personal choice, while it is still cold (yes, even here in Georgia) I have the slow cooking oatmeal with no sugar and skim milk along with my two eggs and turkey bacon. I am still eating the 2 eggs/turkey bacon breakfast that is stated in the Phase One. I have tomatoes as my vegetable choice.
