What You'll Eat
South Beach moves through three phases. Phase 1 lasts two weeks: lots of lean protein, vegetables, salads, beans, eggs, low-fat dairy and a bit of healthy fats, such as nuts and olive oil. No fruit, starches (pasta, rice, bread…), whole grains, sugary foods or alcohol. Phase 2 brings back “good carbs” like whole-grain bread, brown rice, whole-wheat pasta and fruit (and a glass of wine with dinner). When you hit your weight goal and enter phase 3, no food is off limits. There are still rules, however, among them no more than 2 tablespoons of fat, such as mayonnaise or margarine, a day.
Hundreds of South Beach recipes are available online and in books, with ingredient lists, calorie counts and nutritional facts. Here are some of the sources of collections of South Beach recipes:
