I've not been a member myself, but I have read that others who have paid have said that the boards are much better and cheaper too.

But, if you do decide to do it, please pass on what you learn. We always are interesting in more information.

I'm a member I think it's really a shame they don't offer a trial period, even if it was just for one visit. They have the "tour" but it's not the same as actually getting in there and digging around.

They have a lot of recipes for all the phases. It also will generate daily menus for you, including recipes. If you don't like the meal that appears, you can click to choose from a variety of other meals. This would be really handy for someone that isn't sure what to eat.

Q/A's for the diet, answered by Dr. Agatston They include tips, health articles, and more. There aren't LOTS of articles, certainly not as many as in eDiets, but they are still good.

They offer a journal (public or private) where you can log your feelings, etc, as you diet. We also offer free journals, though they are always public, not private.

Their forums are good, though we think ours are just as good, and free However, they do have "Ask the nutritionist" which lets you get accurate advice from a registered dietitian, and you can learn a lot just by browsing that forum. I wish we had that

Whether or not it is worth $65, it's hard to say. If it was just $30, I'd say it was well worth it.

Suzanne, thanks for chiming in!

I know several people on here were members for a while and then stopped. They felt they had gotten enough after a couple of months. They stayed here. I think the support here is fantastic, but I can see how some of the items on SBD online might be worth it, depending on what you need.

Hopefully a couple of people who used it and stopped will chime in. I seem to remember that Barb was a member there once. Is that true?

Nope, Laurie, it wasn't me. I do get the Daily Dish but I just balked at spending the money.

Is that $65.00 a month or a year? If it's for a year then that's not bad, but for a month.

I receive the daily dish and there was an advertisement for a SBD PDA software, when I clicked on it, I say an ad for a trial subscription to the SBD Site. IF i find the link I will post it.

I thought the membership was $5.95 a week?

It's quarterly, so that's $260 per year. I think $10 per month is much more reasonable.

Connieliv, thanks for the link!

Ok everyone I got a 1 week free subscription to SBD online and the website looks great!! It has inspirations, the foods to eat what to avoid, a motivation section, success stories, diet buddies, health info, recipies, health center, excercise guidelines etc... it's Jammed pack with information!

This is the adaption plan for phase 1.

How to adapt your meal plan - Phase 1


The South Beach Diet™ is designed so that you can easily swap meals and ingredients. If you don't like eggs for breakfast, have low-fat cottage cheese or lean meat instead. Not a fish lover? Then choose lean beef or poultry. In Phase 1 of the diet, you can eat as many proteins and vegetables as you like, plus fats like olive oil. Fruit and starches aren't allowed until Phase 2. Here's a look at some general eating guidelines. For specific food choices, check out the Phase 1 Foods to Enjoy & Avoid list.

BREAKFAST
Protein: Vegetables: Fruit: Starch: Milk/Dairy: Fat:
Quantity is not limited. Start with a 2 oz. portion, eat slowly, go back for seconds if still hungry.

Minimum 1/2 cup or 6-8 oz. tomato or vegetable juice.

None

None

2 cups allowed daily (including yogurt)

1 tsp mayonnaise, trans-free margarine, or oil (optional)



SNACK
Snacks are required. Choose a protein, vegetable, fat-free plain yogurt, or nuts/seeds. A snack that combines protein (1 oz.) and vegetables is encouraged.

LUNCH
Protein: Vegetables: Fruit: Starch: Milk/Dairy: Fat:

Minimum 2 cups.
We encourage you to include a serving of beans (1/3-1/2 cup) as part of your vegetables.

Thanks for sharing. Those of us who are frugal (ok, ok, yes, I admit I'm cheap ) would love to read more of what you discovered on the pay site.
