The South Beach Diet

I hate it.

  1. Annie--Once, when my mother was at a party with my brother, he was telling her all about this great diet he was on-- and it allowed red wine. Well, she put down her vodka, picked up a merlot, and declared herself on the same diet! You go girl!

  2. All of these diets make me crazy. My doctor said that at my age, I would have to starve myself to lose weight. Thanks doc.

  3. "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOO HOO what a ride!!!"

  7. Have you tried the Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes...it's my all time favorite.

    I don't think diets work. I mean they do for short periods but you just have to change proportions and eat what you love. It works and with a bit of exercise you could do it.

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I wish you could get some grosbeaks - this one was absolutely glorious in his spring finery.

  10. Double digits! Yea! (comments, not weight!)

    Diets suck...It's not worth it...you deprive yourself for a while then reward yourself for doing such a good job..soon you are part of the ya, ya, yoyo club. Try this...make your plate for the meal and eat 1/2 for 2 weeks...condition the body to expect less...then take a walk...or the next time you are shopping for groceries take a spot that is further than closer to the store...I'm just sayin';)

  11. What Jules said...if you are eating balanced, healthy food - and I am including some wine and some "cake" (or whatever your pleasure is) in the "balanced" part...reducing quantity just a bit and upping walking, gardening - some sort of activity - the body will change.

    I admit, that I do a bit of strength training - muscle burns more calories and also supports the bones ...and makes us less prone to injury in normal activity. You don't have to do a lot or have fancy equipment to make a difference. I do it from home with barbells and a balance ball...20 minutes 3 - 4 times a week. I walk a LOT, outside chores, a bit of bike riding - all stuff I enjoy - enjoying is key!
