Those that don't know what the South Beach Diet is, I am currently in phase one. Phase one is the first 14 days of the diet (lifestyle) in which you take sugar and carbs completely out of your diet. This means no bread, ice cream, or even fruit. Before you decide that it sounds like hell, let me plea that it's only 14 days. I am on day nine and I can honestly say I do not crave sugar anymore! The first week was tough, but this week has been significantly easier. The first week, I would find myself on Pinterest day dreaming about recipes that require a lot of sugar and chocolate.
