Screw You Dr. Arthur Agatston. Wait. In 2 weeks I’ll be loving you, so just check back then. M’kay?

Update: I now have a recipe blog which has great low-carb, high protein dishes. Check it out and let me know what you think :) Delishix

The South Beach Diet Quick and Easy Cookbook: 200 Delicious Recipes Ready in 30 Minutes or Less3 years ago the South Beach Diet worked great for me and Mr. Plain. Then I got pregnant with Chip and gained it all back. Well, Chip is now 2 and I have no more excuses!

Mr. Plain does all the cooking and grocery shopping, and my Christmas present this year was that he was going to cook south beach-style again. Yay! He’s a great cook, and I’m relieved to be doing this again.

However.

The initial 2 week crap-festival that the diet starts out as is already kicking my ass. And we just started yesterday. I have a headache. I’m tired. Cranky. Dizzy. And hungry. None of the good dwarves.

I really remember that I felt great last time we did this, but not at the beginning. The beginning sucks ass, and that’s where I am now. Don’t worry, this won’t turn into a diet saga blog, but you all should know that I’ve got an even shorter fuse now than I did in 2006. So watch out! And for fuck’s sake, please stop blogging about delicious food. That is really starting to get on my nerves.

    sooooo, I shouldn’t tell you I’m cooking roast beef, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, and bread tomorrow for dinner. I should keep that juicy, excuse me yummy, infomation to myself then. Right?

    Just checking.

    Abi, those are great sites. Thanks for the pointers! I don’t usually eat micro-meals, but if I start I’ll contact you. Thanks for the offer.

    she, screw you and everyone who looks like you ;)

    Flo, I’d chew off my hands if I tried the pure calorie-restriction kind of diet. I admire your reserve!

    We are back on our diet as of yesterday. It is a low cholesterol diet for hubby, and I benefit from it by losing weight.

    We are heading to California this summer, and I need to get in shape as well! Agh!

    Yeah, the induction sucks big time. I had great success with it last January but have since slid back (read: approaching 8th month pregnancy weight). Must address that. As I sit here wolfing down mac & cheese. I like many of George Stella’s recipes.

    I just started the South of Hades diet as well, and I am hating every second of it. Woke up on day 2 and felt like I’d been attacked as I slept by large men with hammers. Fatigue, headaches, nausea, blah blah blah. At least I’m not the only one. I fear my man might leave me if I don’t curb the crankiness, pronto. Please tell me it gets better…and that I’ll actually lose some weight. On day 4 and the scale still reads the same as it did before the nightmare began.

    South Beach works great for myself, my family and everyone I know and it has been 3 years now. When reading comments such as “suck ass”, consider the source. Please do some solid homework. Phase 1 is a bit different I have to admit but when one has been eating so unhealthy for so long, the first phase is a bit different. If you go into it with with a bad attitude, you will most likely fail. It saved my life and when it came down to that, 2 weeks is nothing.
