Hi. I am brand spankin new to this ( the site as well as the South Beach Diet) and I would love to get some advice and guidence. I am on day two of the diet and so far so good. I am shocked, however, at how my previous eating habits were the mirror opposite of what I should be eating now. I am working out (Curves gym5 days out of 7 each week) and walking my wonderful dog. I discourage easily (or perhaps I should say I give up and give in easily) so if anyone has any good snack tricks or wisdom to help me live without bread for awhile I would love to hear.
Also, I must admit that I have only skimmed the book and am relying heavily on word of mouth guidence about what I should eat. I know that this is wrong so I will read the book. Has anyone used the southbeach website to get menu's and shopping lists?
thanks for any advice and support. I have a long long long way to go and I know that I am going to rationalize my way out of this unless I stay in contact with others who are doing it. CW/232 GW/170......
