  1. I am so pleased that I found this web-site. 3 Years ago I lost 80lbs on SB, swore I'd never go back to being obese again and here I sit today having gained back 52lbs. I'm so depressed about it. I need to communicate with someone on line that is going through the same thing as me to encourage one another. Is this where I should be or do you know of an on-line forum that I can use? I will definitely use your recipes as I try to get back on track.

  2. Glad it's useful for you.

  3. Thanks so much! I can't believe how much information is on your blog! This is really a great resource.

  4. I'm not sure about Cool Whip; I don't see it anywhere on the list of things that are allowed. but it's not on the list of things to avoid either. I'd check the sugar grams, and if it's more than 2-3 grams of sugar per serving I wouldn't use it.

    The salad dressing made with a packet and tuna with low-fat mayo should be fine.

    Good luck!

  5. Hi. I'm new to South Beach and have been on it for about a week or so and doing well (down 3 lbs – yay!) I've done Atkins before and while they seem a little similiar I'm liking SB MUCH more. I was wondering if the following can be used on Phase One:
    Cool Whip, Good Seasons salad dressing packetil(with Olive Oil) and tuna with low fat mayo?

  6. Kathy, thanks! Hope you will enjoy the recipes.

  7. Awesome site. So glad that I happened onto it. My daughter is vegeterian and I would like to revisit the South Beach diet. I look forward to getting your recipes!!

  8. Jody, I'm always glad to hear that the blog is helpful to someone; good luck!

  9. I'm about to start the South Beach diet… maybe in my next weeks meal plan. I'm already trying to apply some of the basic principles.

    I was so happy to find your site! I think it'll be a great tool in helping me plan meals.

  10. Jenn, you're welcome; hope it is useful to you.

  11. My husband and I just heard about the SBD last week and decided to try it. I'm still waiting for the book from the library, but I was able to find the basic principles online to start this week. I figured, "I can do anything for 2 weeks," but I wasn't excited about everything I had to give up in Phase 1. And then I found your blog. I can't believe how many delicious recipes you've got here – what a fabulous resource! Thanks for making this that much easier for me and everyone else trying to make the transition to a healthier way of life.

  12. Anon- we all stray! The important thing is to get back to it.

  13. Thank you for sharing your recipes! I greatly appreciate that you include pictures not just of the finished product, but also of the steps along the way.

    I'm another person who has loosely followed the principles of South Beach for several years, but recently found myself straying too far and too often. Your recipes remind me that there are plenty of options for tasty, healthy food. Thank you!

  14. Terry, thanks for clarifying; I couldn't think of anything called nucleur cheesecake that I had made or mentioned.

  15. After I wrote the post I went back and looked at my recipes – Nuclear Cheesecake was from another site of SB recipes, not yours. It is a phase 1 dessert that is not ricotta, which I appreciate. We add fresh strawberries as a topping on phase 2. It's a no crust cheesecake which is 'nuked' in the microwave, hence the name.


  16. Anonymous, there are some ricotta-based desserts in the South Beach Diet cookbooks, but I'm not too crazy about them.

  17. In phase one are there any other desserts besides jello and cottage cheese desserts?

  18. Terry, glad you are enjoying the recipes. I'm not sure what nuclear cheesecake is though?

  19. Kalyn, I recently discovered your recipes while searching for something different to do with chicken on SBD. I love every one I've tried so far!! (well, Nuclear Cheesecake wasn't a big hit, but the fault was mine. I had only whipped nonfat cream cheese, and I seriously overcooked it. But I'm going to try it again!)
    Thank you for this outstanding resource.


  20. Allison, you're welcome. Glad to hear the recipes have been helpful for you.
