Default Question about mayo and yogurt....

I finally took the plunge and I'm doing South Beach. My mom is doing this with me and we have a few questions.

I am really enjoying the fact that I am able to eat fruit even if it's a limited list...my favorites are on the list anyway. But, my confushion is with the mayo and yogurt. What brand or type of mayo is best. In the book I have it encourages Dairy-free , soy based, eggless Mayo but.....what in the world is that? I came to South Beach right off of Atkins. I am use to using Helmans full fat mayo but I like light and fat free so I'm flexible. I would like to use what the book recommends but I need to know what brand they are refering too.

Also, why aren't we allowed to have fruit flavored yogurt? I see in the book that I have that light fat-free artificially sweetend is limited but the PLAIN yogurt in not....WHY? The only difference I see in the numbers is the fruit flavored yogurts have four more carbs per 8oz. serving. I would really just like to have the vanilla flavor but my mom likes the fruit flavors.

Thanks so much for clearing things up for me. I need to add that the book that Im refering to is The South Beach Diet Good Fats Good Carbs Guide. My mom has the big book...we share

Blessings to all,

Failure is never fatal~ Success is never final~ it's the courage to continue that counts~~*~~

Hi ChrissyB. It's nice to see you again.

Yoghurt ....mmmmmmm. I must confess I use the fruit ones. I think Dr A's problem with it is the fructose in it. Lac Tose in the milk part is OK but not Fruc Tose. That Tose family has quite a few deviants!

Chose whichever mayo has the lowest sat and trans fat level. Ignore the carbs. Miracle Whip is loaded with sugar so I avoid that but the Hellmans or homemade are fine.

It's nice that your Mum is doing the plan too.
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

I think the yogurt restrictions are about getting rid of your sweet cravings by eliminating all fruit. I use the fruit flavoured yogurts because the vanilla flavoured is actually higher in carbohydrates but I have completed phase one anyway. I also have the odd scoop of low fat icecream for desert because it is lower in fat and carbohydrate than ricotta cheese (and much cheaper).
