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,
