I’ve learned a few things about the South Beach Diet and myself the last 10 days:
1) your blood sugar really does even out. I had no idea that all the crap I was eating was messing with both my body and my mind.
2) you don’t lose weight if you cheat. Even though I feel much better, I’m not losing because I keep cheating.
3) starting the induction phase while you have pms is just foolish! You will find yourself curled up around a bag of marshmallows, cooing at them lovingly while trying to stuff more than is right into your mouth. Then you will wash it down with an ice cold beer…or two.
4) beer and marshmallows are not allowed during the induction phase for a reason.
I either have to stop cheating or move on to phase 2.
