    any hints or comments for south beach diet?

    i'm thinking of starting this soon... i haven't got the book yet and am weaning myself from carbs, going cold turkey would be too much of a shock. is it true that only the 1st 2 weeks is no/low carb? then you can have fruits again? i'd like to know your experiences and advice.

    South beach diet is not a low carb diet

    South beach diet is based on eating good carbs and staying away from the bad carbs.

    Atkins diet is a low carb diet. I think a lot of people get confused and think that South Beach is the same but it is not.

    The first 2 weeks of south beach is the strict part. No fruit in the first 2 weeks. But you do add back the fruit in the next phases.

    You should read the book to take the guess work out of it.

    Good luck with the diet. I know someone who had sucess with it.
