Lightbulb South Beach Diet HELP!!

Ok I just started the South Beach Diet and I am on Phase 1 right now but I always feel like I can't think of what to eat.. a couple of questions.. can I eat KETCHUP??? What about Thousdand Island Dressing with salad? I just don't know where to find these answers! Also do any of you out there have some good recommendations for snacks?? I hope this diet works.. thanks so much!

Re: South Beach Diet HELP!!

Ketchup has a lot of sugar in it, so it's bad for phase one. There is an Adkins brand ketchup that doesn't have any sugar that I use and it's pretty good, or the new cookbook has a recipe for ketchup that is good for phase one..I haven't tried to make it yet, but I'll probably try it soon. As for snacks, I usually like sweets for snacks, so I make a TON of sugar free jello so I always have that ( It's only 40 calories for a whole box!! So I eat the whole thing lol ). I also really like ricotta deserts a lot. You can flavor ricotta any flavor you like. There's a decent recipe in the first book for Ricotta creme, that's chocolate, I also found a recipe somewhere for a ricotta cheesecake that I eat ALL the time. As for thousand island dressing, I dont like it so I'm not sure, but I'm pretty sure you can't have it. Check the ingrediants and if there are sugars or carbs I wouldn't eat it. If you dont' like sweet snacks, I don't have a lot of suggestions, the only thing I've had is lunchmeat wrapped around cheese. You can have just plain cheese if you like that for a snack or there's a recipe for roasted chickpeas in the cookbook that I haven't tried yet, but as soon as I can actually FIND some chickpeas I will. I've been cooking every recipe out of the two books I can so I dont get bored with phase one, and I dont even like cooking, but I've lost 5 lbs so far and this is day 7 of phase one and I haven't gotten bored with the food. It really does work, I have friends that have lost so much weight they look like different people now!!! Good luck!!

South Beach Ketchup -
1 can (8oz) tomato sauce
3/4 cup tomato paste
2 tablespoons sugar substitute
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons light soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 1/2 tablespoons malt vinegar

In a large pot over medium heat combine all and simmer for 5 mins...refrigerate until serving.

Ricotta cheesecake -
1 package sugar free jello any flavor (try them all!!!)
1 cup low fat ricotta cheese
1 cup water

Boil the water and then dissolve the jello in it. Put the ricotta cheese in a blender and pour the jello and water over it then blend until smooth and frothy. Pour into whatever container you like and chill until it's set. YUM!!
