  1. Thank you so much for all these wonderful recipes. I`ve been meaning to start South Beach since New Years Day but wasn`t very motivated. Then I found this website with all these AMAZING recipes and now I`m super excited to try them. I have all my meals mapped out for the next two weeks. Thank you again!

  2. I'm the same as above. As a guy it's not easy to convince myself to start eating well. In my mid 30s and my wife and I decided let's TRY a diet. We're in phase 1 and running out of meal options. Then I googled and found this site and guess what, I could eat this stuff no problem. I have to change my relationship with food and not think of stuffing myself at every meal. Thanks Kalyn for your excellent blog :)

  3. Thanks Jake. Glad you are enjoying the food!

  4. I just started South Beach 2 weeks ago. My mother bought the book years ago and I never bothered to look at it. Now that I just had my second child and turning 32 soon, I finally decided to do something about my weight. I was trying to stay motivated, but getting tired of the same ole foods until of course I came across your website. I LOVE IT! Thank so SO much for all these great recipes. Now I'm even more motivated and excited. Thank you! =)

  5. LL, wishing you all the best with your weight loss program. So happy my blog is helpful for you.

  6. Kalyn,

    I know there are no portion size limits for meat and fish, but is that to be taken literal? Can i eat a whole steak, whole salmon filet, more than one chicken breast, etc if i am still hungry? I load up on veggies too, but still might want some more protein.
    Same with salads too. Can i make a nice big salad with SB friendly toppings and eat the whole thing?

    Rebecca B.

  7. I would adjust your portion sizes for everything based on whether you're still losing weight. If you are, eat as much as you'd like of the allowed foods.

  8. Can I have whitefish salad on phase 1?

  9. Today is my 1st day on South Beach. I have such a sweet tooth and I found your almond coconut cookie w/ splenda.


  10. Hi Kalyn. Just wanted to let you know how helpful your section on South Beach has been. Both my boyfriend and I are a bit overweight, and he has cholesterol problems too. He wasn't keen on "dieting," but I managed to convince him to give SB a try, as I had a lot of success with it a few years ago. I happened upon your site one day and sent him the link, and that night when I got home all he could talk about was the great sounding recipes you have that he wants to try! LOL. We've made a few so far and like them all. We started SB just over a week ago and he's already lost 9 pounds and I've lost 4. :-)

  11. Patty, that's great. So glad the blog has been helpful.

  12. I live in India n I m trying to lose weight... Your recipes are very helpful....I just love your recipes...they are so simple n easy...most of all I like that you put pictures of every recipes, which really helps a lot ...I love you... You did a great job are really helping so many people...keep it up....god bless you... :-)

  13. hi there

    i love rice..can you tell me a good substitute to use in phase one?

    Thank You

    And AMAZING blog

  14. Thanks Kimmy. The only thing that comes to mind is "cauliflower rice." I have a recipe for cauliflower rice with Sumac but you could also make it more plain.
