    Wish me luck, I need it!:D

    They are both so similar..but I am going to allow myself to eat a fruit if I have a bad sugar craving...Atkins doesn't allow that..but SB does.

    Yesterday when I got home from work, I had starch cravings...so I made a elbow pasta with peas...really fast and simple to make...but afterwards:( OMG...horrible indigestion, up for hours unable to sleep, my tummy was bloated..I wanted to puke,,but didn't.

    I decided I need to get those starchy carbs out of my life..and I need to lose weight.

    Goodbye sweets, bagels, pasta, bread...etc....Only carbs will be vegetables and salads...and occasional fruit. Oy vey!

    Good luck with the diet. But I'm not realy sure any diet really works without some serious lifestyle changes.

    Please make sure you do more of the South Beach Diet than Atkins.

    Atkins is not healthy in the long run. Don't want to see you do something bad to yourself.

    She's pretty smart and works in health care. I'm sure she is aware of the dangers. I've seen her picture...she looks great now already.

    South Beach was an easy diet for me. Lost 60 pounds. Need to get back on it and start walking again.

    Good luck with it, know you will do well.

    My doc is extreme. He told me no fruit on South Beach til I reach my goal weight. I went along with it for a couple months, but finally cracked. I'm in phase 2 now, so added a few blueberries and raspberries.

    There is a pasta called Dreamfields (think that's right) that I get at Publix. It supposedly has less starch and was specifically mentioned on a little sheet of paper that my internist gave me. Tonight we had their version of macaroni with tons of veggies. I'm cutting down on the amount of olive oil used, too. I know it's allowed but think we shouldn't be quite so liberal with it.

    After too long on phase 1, I've lost my taste for sweets. SR had a small pie for his birthday pie and I didn't eat a bite.

    I'm getting discouraged as have lost about 20 pounds since April, but it's slowing down. My knee is hurting me so bad now that I'm having a tough time walking. Using a Pilates ring for exercise doesn't exactly give me the cardio I need. I guess that at this point that I should be happy to just maintain til my knee is fixed and I can start walking with SR again.
