Default Arrgghh, I cheated and it was ON ACCIDENT! Now what do I do??

We were out shopping today and on the way home we got a Pepsi for him, Diet Pepsi for me.

I was giving my son a bottle and picked up my soda without paying attention, took some big swigs out of it, put it down. Repeated said action a few minutes later, then realized that it tasted funny... I saw I had picked up my DB's Pepsi! Urrggghh!

I've been OP all day and we're having Turkey Cutlet Parmesan for dinner. But now I feel like the whole day is shot!

What should I do? Is there anything that will reverse the effects of that evil, evil hfcs? I was thinking I should chug a glass of V8. Or should I just calm down, cook and eat my healthy dinner, and keep trudging along?

Oh Lordy don't panic.

Remember "cheating," and "now the day is shot," or the need to "undo" is all "diet" mentality. You're done with that. South Beach is about following principles, not following yet more "forbidden" and "allowed" lists. It's not a magic spell that is broken by a few grams of HFCS.

What works about South Beach eating is the blood sugar control (I'm not a true Beacher, because I use an exchange plan, but I try to make my choices from South Beach friendly foods, and rarely not so SB friendly foods - like yesterday I had two small ears of sweetcorn as my lunch, and counted them as my starch choices for the day - all of them).

A couple swigs of soda is not going to zonk out your blood sugar if you stay on plan. My two ears of corn didn't either. Though I was a little hungrier, a little sooner at dinner time, I think because of the higher GI of the corn. Better than a slice of cake though, and I stayed on track.

But even the South Beach book, tells you that following SB, doesn't mean never having a piece of cake again - it's about making the best choices, most of the time, and limiting the worst choices to the rare occasion.

Thanks guys, I was relieved. Sometimes I have this "all or nothing" mentality. I'm going to cook my turkey parmesan and veggies and enjoy it thoroughly and forget about my pepsi flub.

Yum, corn. I didn't get fat from eating corn, so on phase 2, this may be a bit 'illegal' but I will have corn from time to time. For the most part I will stick to the greens though but I can't imagine not having a nice ear of fresh sweet corn from time to time.

I gained weight from bad carbs... beer, white breads (although I love whole wheat so never touching white bread again won't be hard) and stuff like that. White rice and stuff.

Relax and move on. Nothing you can really do about it, so why stress?
