The South Beach Diet

What I eat has a great affect on how I feel, I know this, so you think I would eat super healthy right!? Not so much, I do great for awhile then before I know it I am eating like crap and drinking way to much caffeine again. I have woken up the last 4 days with a headache and stomachache. I know it is because I am eating poorly. Food also affects my mental health, I am just way happier when I eat right and lay off the caffeine. I am also getting a bit chubby which you women know is just depressing all on it's own!

So tomorrow I am officially starting the South Beach diet (again). That means two weeks of no sugar not even fruit, no bread and no pasta. For 3 days you feel like shit, then after that it's pretty easy. I am sure I will have a ton of complaining to do so here's the deal - I will do it all under this post so it does not become the main topic on my blog. If anyone wants to join me on this difficult yet rewarding journey that would be fun. And feel free to leave any questions or share your helpful hints with me in the comment section.

  2. Thank you so much for the kind words! Good job on both 2 weeks of not drinking and starting South Beach! Mmmmm...my only advice is when you have a craving eat something sweet. I know that kinda messes with the SB deal, but it works. Maybe a sugar free fudge pop or a little piece of chocolate. Keep up the good work! Emily

  3. Thanks Emily that advice helps, I will go buy some fudge pops and search for something else. I had a rough day yesterday and almost cracked, But i remember something I read on your website..."without a drink you cannot be a drunk". With that I went and had a warm bath!
    Thanks again Emily; you keep me inspired.
