Default Another thing I like about South Beach!

Again I am new to this.. so I feel like every day is an epiphany....

Another thing I like about South Beach is the side effects from cheating! Complete lethargy and the sense of "not being able to lift my head up off my desk"... Is one more motivating factor to NOT CHEAT/eat simple carbs.

Does anyone else find this to be true???

Cheating does make me tired. If I cheat with something with sugar in it I get a huuuuge stomach ache, which I don't mind because it is a great discipline tool lol. Last weekend I had 2 little S'mores that my little sister made when I was visiting my mother and for about 2 hours after that my stomach hurt. They are good but not worth the pain.

Not pleasant, but I ate a brownie last week and spent some quality minutes heaving in the potty. First brownie I'd had in a year and definately NOT worth it.

I call it a "carb hangover". Quite unpleasant.

I totally agree...I love how sensitive this diet has made me to the negative effects of simple carbs.

I totally agree. People I work with ask me how I can resist yummy food. I'm in charge of birthday potlucks that I organize monthly. I tell them that I'm able to bake and make high calorie stuff and I'm not tempted to eat them (most of the time). I do enjoy the aromas. I'm also usually quite satisfied with what I'm eating on South Beach.

Smile Because it is the most loving thing I can do for me and my DH

I like knowing that it is something that I can do for the rest of my life. There is no beginning middle or end. I make the same food for my DH, as is suggested in the book. Not because I am "mean" but because this is a good way to eat for myself and my loved ones.

I made a Splenda-sweetened chocolate cake the other day and my DH could barely wait to try it. It is as close to stress free dieting as I have ever experienced.

I am not putting a spotlight on me in public by carrying around my carefully cut up carrot sticks or wistfully telling everyone that I am on a diet. I just eat healthy these days. I have decided that I will let my clothes and how my figure is resuming its old shape to tell "my story".

When I set out "treats" for friends of my DH this past weekend after they had finished helping us move our stuff, it was healthy "snack" food. Ice cold bottled water. Oatmeal bars. Fresh fruit. They didn't say, "Hey, what's this stuff?" I told my DH that 1) I didn't want to buy something that if there were leftovers I would mind having around here. 2) If this is a good way for me and DH to eat, why give our friends (whom we claim to care about) junk food? Are they "junk" friends? Of course not!

Sometimes, I have to remind myself that I am on a diet. It just really is common sense kind of eating. I wonder if he would have titled his book "The Common Sense Approach to Eating", if it would have sold. Hmmm???

You know, this is so true. This just doesn't feel like a diet. It feels like treating myself by eating good food that's good for me. I'm not feeling deprived at all.

But i was funny the other day i went out with friends and we were driving and i was smelling something nasty like old cheese or something one of my friends opened a bag of doritoz which i loved and i was feeling so happy that i found it to be nasty i guess i kicked my doritoz habit !

I most definitely feel bad effects from eating "not wise" carbs, especially if I make the decision to indulge in white flour carbs. I don't have to worry about dealing with guilt, because I feel really bad physically, a few hours later. The thing I notice after indulging in not good carbs, is that my potty breaks are less frequent, since all the water if staying inside to deal with the refined carb processing. Yuck

Nessa!!! That is so funny that you say that... The other night at the baseball game my daughter was sitting on my lap eating icecream... I wasn't craving it in the least bit.. but I smelled it on her breath and that's all I needed...

This SBD is amazing to me... My cravings are near zero and I am satsfied with my choices!!!
