Question Looking at crossing back over..a few questions i forgot the answer to?

Hi there! Remember me? I was on this forum for a month or so back last year.. I was trying desperately to lose weight. I had a serious dis-taste for veggies of all types and i wanted to lose weight fast and i got discouraged and ran away and sulked and came back an adult, and decided to take control over my life again. I jumped onto the IP bandwagon and had some success for about a month and then i cheated once and ended up quitting. I took a long vacation literally and gave the dieting stuff a break.. and i just came back to it. I tried to jump back onto an IP diet alternatives plan and all i could do was taste the chemicals in the pre-packaged food and i was crying out for veggies.. I have a new found love for lots of veggies and this artificial packaged stuff wasnt cutting it. So im trying to make a switch over from IP -Alternatives to South Beach.. im ready to lose weight the healthy way..and without expensive packets and most of all..with real whole fresh foods.. But i just had one question "Is cocoanut palm sugar an alloweable substitute on south beach in place of sucralose? cause i want to try and stay away from sucralose altogether and i heard that there is only 2.5 grams of carbs in aserving of cocoanut sugar and its low glycemic as well??? and i cant quite remember if beans are unlimited? what about tahini? whats the limit with tahini? I have read the book, but i dont remember coming across the tahini part , just nuts..but i remember you being allowed 2 cups of beans.. i was just wondering if i could have more then that because i really want to make chick pea burger patties..Also is veggie burgers allowed like yves? Can you have balsamic?

Sorry for asking so many questions.. i forgot the list of allowable foods cause my book is packed away in the box..by the way.. have they come out with a new south beach book since the supercharged one?


Hello to Ruth! and Matilda!

I think you should take a look at the SB FAQ. It should answer any questions you have plus some. I don't even own the supercharged book. I just read the faq.

Welcome back and good luck!

I have no idea about the tahini though. It's literally just chickpea paste, isn't it? If it is, I'm sure it's fine. Or I hope so. I've been gobbling down ready made hummus and labneh and my weight loss seems to be pretty steady.

tahini is sesame seed paste so has the same limits as PB and nuts and seeds in general. I recently discovered raw tahini. It's amazing.
