Question Information on South beach

Hi All,
I am currently in week 1 of Atkins but my dad said to look at South beach so last night i went and bought the book and read it. The problem I have is I'm the kinda person who needs to see actual numbers as guidelines. For instance with Atkins you cant go over 20 net carbs a day in the Induction period. South Beach doesn't have these parameters. What is the saturated fat limit and carb limit for phase 1 of SB?


EDIT: Ok I found the FAQ page and it really helps! One question I do have when transitioning to phase 2 how many grams of carbs are recommended you gradually put back in? Atkins it 5-8 grams.
