Vegan South Beach Phase 1

27 May

That’s the plan, vegan south beach. At least 2 weeks and I will add fruits only back in for another two weeks and go from there. We just got back from my family reunion and oh boy was the food good! You can imagine what that means about the healthfulness of it.

For those of you unfamiliar with South Beach, it is a 3 phase diet. The first phase, the most restrictive, focuses on removing all sugar sources, including fruit. This starves the yeast in the digestive tract and helps eliminate carb and sugar cravings. From there you add all foods back in and focus on balancing intake. So for example, if you have bread for lunch, you will have a carb-free dinner. Additionally, this gives you a good method to evaluate “triggers” for overeating. I have had the most success when eating in a South Beach/low glycemic index manner.

Secondly, one cup of Smooth Move tea in the evening to help cleanse the digestive tract,and perhaps a liver or 3-day juice cleanse when I begin my new job as weekend Manager at Dtox!

Tomorrow’s plan:
Hoppin John Peas and eggs
Nuts
Eggplant park (not breaded)
Caprese Salad
Salad with Avacado and beans
