My son loves the south beach recipes as well. He just turned two.
As healthy as SBD is.....it isn't healthy for babies and growing children. They need the carbs to thrive...make sure you aren't restricting her carb intake just because you are restricting yours.
With my family, my husband needs carbs at every meal because he is an athlete and my DS needs carbs because he is a growing boy. Ratios of protein to carbs are very important. If I make an SBD recipe, I always make sure to include a carb - brown rice, ww tortilla, ww pita, etc.- for DH and DS. They almost always request a fruit to be served after the meal as well. Apples with cinnamon sprinkled on top is their favorite. It saves them eating sugary desserts while satisfying their sweet tooth.
When I was fully on SBD, it was hard once in awhile to pass up those carbs...but it just takes some willpower and like Nessa says "Just Say No".
100 lbs. down plus a carrot for every 5 more
