Started the South Beach Diet a couple of days ago.
5th day today and I am holding up good. My sister and mother have been hounding me for months about my gut, which has gotten out of hand. I finally got disgusted enough to start the diet.
The first 12 days are the most restrictive, much like the Atkins diet. A friend of mine lost 35 pounds in 3 or 4 months. If it hadn't been for his success, I don't know what I would have done.
I would like to lose about 15-20 pounds. I hope the gut goes first, but I hear it is the last to go.
