South Beach Diet

One of my co-workers is doing the South Beach Diet. If you're unfamiliar, during the first 2 weeks of the SBD, you fore go without anything to eat but fish, chicken, veggies and fat-free cheese. No bread, no pasta, no sugars. Impossible. We had a picnic at work- hot dogs, bakes beans, macaroni salad, brownies... so delicious. Do you know what my co-worker ate? Spinach and lettuce with oil and vinegar and celery stalks with low fat string cheese. My problem comes in that 1: I love hot dogs 2: I believe that ranch dressing is a cure-all and you can't eat it on the SBD 3: She looked miserable, sitting there, munching on her celery and I just can't do that. I have a relationship with food. A good one and I'm not willing to lose that. I'm afraid I'll be fat forever.

It really doesn't matter what you eat, as long as you keep your calories low you will loose weight.

I remember hearing someone say that you could eat 800 calories worth of donuts each day and still loose weight. Of course you would probably feel like crap, but you would loose weight.

The key is finding a way of eating that works for you.

Personally I couldn't ever live a life that didn't include a hot dog or two. :)
