Default New to south beach

Hi everyone. I'm new to the forum and to the south beach diet. I just finished day 1 of phase 1 and hanging in there ok. Hard for me to not have any fruit- that was a big snack for me - but so far so good.

I'm a 34 year old type 2 diabetic with mild complications and looking to drop about 130lbs total not only to look better but also to help control my diabetes.

I have the base book + cookbook + good carbs and dining out books so I feel fairly confident with the rules but we will see!

I'm trying new veggies that I haven't had in years. The new veggie of the day today is Jicama.

Only 2 weeks sans fruit - totally worth it I find when I have fruit before 12pm, I crave it all day so watch out! (do a forum search for phase 1.5 - what we call the re-intro of foods phase).

These forums, and the people here, are so wonderful and helpful.

Also hit up the recipe section!!! PM at any time!
