South beach vs Dukan diet..Thoughts? Help?
Okay, so ive been on the south beach plan before..and successfully lost 20 pounds within a month and a bit the first time around..However, one binge and i was gone. It was evident that my motivation and timin g wasnt working out..Well..now its time to try again..Im starting a new job which is good for getting me out of the house..im getting married!!! yay!! Next May which means i have a year to get fit lose weight and look gorgeous in a lovely wedding gown..So thats my motivation for losing weight..However..upon deciding to do south beach again..(which im used to) I came across the Dukan Diet...and so i read the book and it begins with a 5 to 10 days pure protein time frame..aka..No beans, no nuts,no seeds, no veggies...nada..nothing.. Its just lean meat and non fat dairy for 10 days..and then you can add in veggies but depending on how much weight you have to lose depends on how long it will be till you can add in fruit and bread again..because i have so much to lose..it says it will take a year of staying on veggies and protein only before being able to add in fruit and bread....So ive been stressing for a few reasons about trying out the dukan diet..because 1) ive never done it before... 2)you cant have desserts like you can on south beach.. 3)you cant even have salsa!! I dont know why im stressing so bad thinking about it..is it possible that its my gut instinct telling me that its not a good diet to go on?? or south beach is better??
