So glad I came across these forums as I begin the South Beach Diet! I'm on day 2 of phase 1 and all is good so far. I actually tried this diet about 5 years ago and had no problems with phase 1...it was transitioning into phase 2 that was my problem! I feel better prepared for it this time so hopefully I'll have more success this time around.
Anyway, just a quick question about a food item that I'm not sure is phase 1 "legal". I'm not sure if you're familiar with pappadums but they're like an indian flatbread. The ingredients on the brand (Patak's) I have in my cupboard are as follows: lentil flour, salt, sodium bicarbonate, rice flour, vegetable oil. One piece has 30 calories, 5 carbs and no sugar. Would these be suitable for phase 1 or should I stay away from them until phase 2? I have some hummus in the fridge and while I'm not a fan of veggies dipped in hummus, I thought these pappadum things would be a good low cal dipper. Thanks for your help!
