  1. I have a recipe for an South Beach Diet Phase 1 –
    "Italian Cheese Cake"
    3 cups – part skim Ricotta Cheese
    1/2 cup – sugar substitute (spender)
    6 eggs
    Orange rind zest
    Lemon rind zest
    Salt – dash
    1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
    2 tsp. Vanilla

    Mix ricotta cheese, sugar, orange zest, lemon zest, salt, cinnamon, vanilla in a electric mixer. Add eggs one at a time. Mix until blended well.
    Spray a glass bowl with cooking spray. Pour mixer into bowl and bake for 1 hour @ 325*. Let it sit in the oven after it's done until it cools.

    • Thank you Kalyn, yes this is a great recipe for cheese cake. I have followed your recipes for South Beach Diet Phase 1 now for 4 weeks. I have lost a total of 16-20 lbs. I'm starting phase 2 but keeping on with most of your phase 1 recipes.
      Thanks again for your wonderful recipes.

    • Congratulations Mary, I have some ricotta in the fridge so I might try making this for the blog! Of course I will credit you if I share the recipe. Congrats on your success!

  2. I think this would be Phase 1 although I am not sure. I mix a small amount (1/4-1/2 cup) fat free regular greek yogurt with 1 tsp vanilla extract. Place in freezer and stir every 10-15 min until mostly solid (about 30 min in my freezer). Serve with a few mini chocolate chips for an extra treat but be very careful (only a few chocolate chips.

  3. Anna, that sounds like it could be an occasional treat on phase one to me, although the whole milk and whipped cream are not really permitted on South Beach.

  4. Thanks for your website, Kalyn- you are my first stop whenever I need culinary inspiration.

    Here's my favorite low-carb dessert (I think it's Phase One, but not sure):
    8oz milk (I use whole milk)
    2T unsweetened dark cocoa powder, or to taste
    1T. Truvia, or to taste
    unsweetened whipped cream
    cardamom, if desired

    Microwave the milk for a minute. Whisk in cocoa and truvia. Nuke for another minute. Whisk again, top with whip. Sprinkle a little cardamom on top.


  5. Dan, it sounds good. Will look up the ingredients to see if I think it's Phase One, I'm not sure either.

  6. I make a faux cheescake pudding that is very versatile.

    1 16 oz container of fat free cottage cheese
    1/2 cup skim milk
    1tsp. vanilla

    1 sm package sugar free instant pudding.

    Put first three ingredients in a blender and run till smooth, while running pour dry pudding mix in. Blend for another 10 seconds.
    Spoon into 4-6 small containers and chill.
    I've used every flavor of SF pudding available and all turn out good. Especially love white chocolate flavor,with a bit of sugar free raspberry syrup.

    Not sure if it qualifies for Phase 1 or not..


  7. I made the chocolate tofu pudding and it was good. Then I added some sugar-free DaVinci syrup to it for flavor and it was terrific! I had Peppermint patty on hand (yum) and I'm going to get some SF raspberry and make it again (yum yum). It doesn't take much. Just a teaspoon or so for flavor.
