Thread: South Beach?

    Default South Beach?

    I know it seems rather old hat now. I had heard of this diet but didn't pay
    much attention to it. I had thought it was 40% carbs and the rest fat and
    protein but apparently not.

    Anyway... Angela saw the gastroenterologist today and he said she must be
    on Atkins or South Beach but that South Beach would be easier to follow.

    Had a hard time finding the books. Went to three stores before we found
    them although I did find what seems to be a new hardbound book about South
    Beach. It isn't the diet proper but it did have sections about kids and for
    parents and diet in general so I thought I should read it too.

    We bought the paperbacks of the basic diet and the newer diet and Angela
    found a book about dining out. Since we were going to go out to eat and
    since we hadn't a clue what she should eat, we bought it. Panera Bread was
    listed so we went there. We have a new one with a drive through. We tried
    to order one of the sandwiches that was listed in the book only to find
    there is no such thing. So we ordered the closest thing to that, that
    didn't have almonds in it since she can't have them.

    I still need to read the books but that will take a while. In the meantime,
    I am confused. For instance, why is the whole grain bread allowed at
    Panera? The pieces of bread looked pretty big. Buns are also allowed at
    Arby's but they are not at a lot of restaurants. Almonds are allowed but
    walnuts are not? Cheese is sometimes allowed? Looks like whole eggs might
    not be allowed but egg whites are? This seems to also be a low fat diet.
    Fruit seems to be allowed. But no potatoes? Not sure about other veggies.

    Does anyone have any quick pointers? For instance what would be allowed as
    snacks or for lunch? We are really low on food at the moment. We have the
    rest of the Easter eggs. Some cooked hamburger patties, cooked chicken
    breast, a little bit of sliced turkey, some roast beef, baby carrots, sliced
    apples, canned green beans, canned tuna, chicken and turkey and
    well...mostly a lot of other stuff I know wouldn't likely be on there like
    potatoes, rice and pasta.

    We will probably just go out to eat or get takeout again tomorrow night at
    least for her because until I have it all sorted out at least I know what
    she can eat via the book.
