South Beach Diet – Day 1

27 Sep

So after a crazy wonderfully glutoneous weekend in New Orleans with my hubby we have started South Beach Diet.  I have been

No need to buy the book I checked mine out at my local library!

an avid Weight Watcher for years but had an epiphany last week and realized that I needed a plan that I was not familiar with so that I could be strict on myself and South Beach was my choice.  It’s kind of like Atkins with no carbs at first but it also focuses on low fat items so that you don’t die of a heart attack.

Here is my menu for the day.

Breakfast – 2 scrambled eggs and 2 slices turkey bacon
Mid Morning Snack – Light String Cheese
Lunch – Salad with Grilled Chicken Bell Pepper, almonds, cheese and cucumber
Afternoon Snack – Almonds
Dinner – Mexican Chicken Soup (recipe coming soon)
Desert – Sugar Free Popsicle

I think I had a great day so far but we will see if I can stick to and keep it going.  I have another 13 days of phase1 , the strictest phase and I hope I make it and don’t bite someone’s head off due to lack of carbs.

If you know any good South Beach recipes or low carb tricks leave them in the comments. I found some amazing recipes on kalynskitchen.blogspot.com Check it out.

Wish me luck 🙂

    Hey Drama Mama – Please don’t bite my head off! Maybe we can do it together so we can fuss each other. You can definitely do this. Day 1 sounded appetizing. Check this site out…http://www.southbeachrecipes.com/

    I like how it divides the recipes up by phases so you’re not even tempted to look at other yummy recipes you haven’t made it to yet 🙂
