The South Beach Diet Phase Two

Phase Two: Ongoing Weight Loss
("Re-introducing Carbs").

Here, "Good Carbs" are re-introduced into your eating program, where a more gradual weight loss can be achieved (1-2 lbs per week). It is in this phase that you'll stay, until you reach your desired weight.

Gradually increase your intake of healthy carbohydrates - whole-grain bread, whole grain rice, whole wheat pasta, fruit, sweet potatoes.

There's still quite a few foods to avoid (or at least eat only rarely) :

  • mostly white bread and other things produced from white flour,
  • beets, carrots, corn, potatoes
  • Sweet fruit: bananas, canned fruit, fruit juice, pineapple, raisins, watermelon
  • Other sugary items: honey, ice cream, jam

If you like the occasional drink (as I do), you can now drink wine in moderation. Red wine is best.
