Default Phase I Time Limit - from The Daily Dish

Phase 1 Time Limit


It can be tempting to stay in Phase 1 until you've reached your goal weight. Not only can you shed pounds quickly during the early part of this Phase, but it can also be scary to start opening yourself up to more food choices. However, Dr. Agatston has several good reasons for moving on to Phase 2.

Extending Phase 1 means you'll be missing out on a variety of whole-grain foods and fresh fruits that offer important nutritional benefits. In addition, Phase 1 wasn't designed to be a long-term eating plan. The meal options are limited and constrictive, so dieters are in danger of improvising to eliminate boredom. After a while, you may find old habits creeping back in, and before long, you're cheating more than eating healthy.

The three-phase approach of The South Beach Dietô is central to its success. We strongly encourage you to follow the diet as recommended. Look at this journey as a lifestyle change. It's important to take things one step at a time ó don't get caught up in the idea that this is a race to reach a particular goal. Remember, gradual weight loss will be more sustainable over the long term.

Just bumping this up for those who are having a hard time with the Phase 1/Phase 2 transition.
