How easy is South Beach Diet Recipes to follow?
South Beach Diet Recipes most restrictive phase calls for extremely limiting most food and grains. Even the more liberal phase two calls for limiting foods like bagels, white bread, cookies, ice cream, honey and jam. Same goes for pineapple, watermelon and raisins, permitted only once in a while. (These fruits are high in sugar.) While you don’t need to go into ketosis to see benefits, you will need to keep track of your net carbs each day to stay with your daily goal of 50 grams (phase one) or 100 grams (phase two). You may need to muster up willpower to stick to the program.
