Do you know if success on the South Beach Diet is possible if you skip the induction phase and go directly onto the 2nd phase of this diet? I have been doing LC for about a year and a half now and can't stand the thought of starting on induction again in any diet. Please advise me on what to do. Thanks...Fran
Note from MizFrog: I've read in some of the Q&As (several are on this site) where Dr. Agatston says that it's okay to go right into Phase 2. People who do that don't experience the rapid weight loss during the first two weeks, but lose at the rate of 1 to 2 pounds per week. You can combine Phase 1 and Phase 2, doing some of each. Remember, this is not a low carb diet, it's a "good" carb or "smart" carb diet. Even in Phase 1, you don't have to count carbs. Just avoid the high glycemic carbs. Eat plenty of veggies. I wish you well!
I was thrilled to find your web sight. It will be a great help as my wife and I plan to start the SBD this weekend. B. Spitler. PA
Thanks so much for the info on starting the SBD at the second phase. I'm psyching myself up for the slow weight loss. I feel that patience during weight loss is important to me. Thanks again.....Fran
Thank you for the wonderful site on the SBD! I think it's the most complete collection of information on this topic. I'm so happy to have found it! Thanks again! Valentina from Romania
Great site! I've added you to my favorites. I'm still in week 1, and looking for recipe ideas. THANKS!
Thanks for sharing valuable information
I was just searching for information on SB Diet and stumbled on to your site. What a goldmine of information!! After reading through some of your recipes I've added your site to my favorites. I plan on returning here often. I have one of your zucchini recipes in the oven now. Thank you for such a great site. I know this will be a great help for me in reaching my goal. Keep adding those good recipes they are great for people like me who are not imaginative cooks. Judy
I so so glad I started this diet I'm still on Phase 1 but I have already lost 3 pounds!!! I'm so excited and the information I got off your website is wonderful I plan all my meals by it. The south beach diet is the first diet I have ever tried and it's working. So I just want to say Thanks for such a good website.--- LaTasha
Thanks so much for including vegetarian recipes! Natalie W.

Hi Sandy... WHAT A TRANSFORMATION !! You really put some time into this and it shows. I'd say it's almost as perfect as you are... :-) Love to you both... say "hi" to Mr. Frog for me. Bill & Linda
Hello, Thanks for supplying all those recipes. Your added comments with them is especially helpful - TM, Vancouver, Canada
So glad to have found your site. What a lot of effort you have put into it. I will be back to it often as I go through my diet life style change. Thank you, Karen
Thanks for all your hard work!! I LOVE your site & I am sure I will visit you often!!
What a great site. Thanks so much for your hard work. Ginger
What a wonderful informative site you have set up and share with others!! I know it required a ton of work to set up and even more work to maintain. Thank you for your efforts. I look forward to spending a lot of time here and learning about the SB diet.
Linda G=thanks for putting all this info together in one place. lots of help to us.
What a great resource. Thanks so much for doing this! JannieB
THANK YOU FOR HAVING THIS WEBSITE AVAILABLE TO US. SINCE I HAVE READ YOUR SITE I AM GOING ON WEEK 2 OF PHASE 1 OF THE SBD. AND SINCE YOU HAVE BROKEN IT DOWN. IT IS MUCH EASIER FOR ME TO TAKE IT 1 DAY AT A TIME. THANK YOU SO MUCH. WITHOUT THIS SITE I DON'T THINK I WOULD HAVE AT LEAST MADE IT THIS FAR. THANK YOU, ODESSA
Hello, Thank you for your web site. It's wonderful. I have about 90 pounds to lose and I'm looking forward to doing this diet. One question... I didn't notice the amount of milk or yogurt to have in Phase 1. Can you please advise? Thanks Heather
From MizFrog: It's on the Phase 1 Foods to Enjoy list, and maybe in another place or two on the site. Formerly it was 2 servings daily, but that has been upped by Dr. Agatston to 2 to 3 servings of dairy daily, dairy meaning milk and/or yogurt, not cheese. For this diet, cheese is counted as a protein, not dairy. I wish you well in your journey to good health!
Thanks for your help. I've lost some pounds but more importantly, it's great to have someone take the time to compile a helpful website such as yours. Bob
If everyone had a sister like you they would be the luckiest people in the world. I know cause I'm your brother. Love ya, Jerry Lee. PS: Great web-site.
Betsy from PA
I have marked this site so I can return whenever I have time. I am cheering you for doing this. I started following South Beach diet this summer and back in the size of clothes I wanted to be. Thanks for having this page. I'll send others your way Ellie Braun-Haley
thank you for all your hard work. I find your recipes and lists so, so helpful!! Lana Sternberg
Great info & tips!!
Thank you for going through the trouble of organizing and listing all the information here! This is great! The book is kinda bulky to run and read every time I need to check something! Thanks again! Great job!
Thank you for all the great South Beach Diet recipes! I'm just starting out, and they are very helpful!
MizFrog, bless you for being such a caring person to put all this together for those of us who are trying to lose weight. More info than any other site I've found. I have spent hours reading here. I can see so much love and WORK in it. I truly appreciate what you have done. Thank you!!!! Nina
Wow! I love the South Beach Diet! I lost 25 pounds last year to fit into a wedding dress that was 2 sizes too small when I first tried it on. It had buttons in the back that wouldn't close. The lady who did my alterations was ready to accept that she would somehow "fix" the dress so I could wear it open instead of buttoned. Well, we opted to hold off on the project to see if I could lose the weight I needed. Yeah! South Beach did it! I focused and used the book as my guide. Got married in July and looked great. My cholesterol was normal as was my blood values in general. My doctor said I couldn't bring the numbers down with diet. I guess I proved him wrong. I am so glad I found this site so I can get back on the wagon in 2005!! I put back on about 10 pounds but I am back in the groove with my beloved SBD!!
I just completed my first week following the SBD guidelines. Your site gave me great ideas to try and continue the plan. Thanks so much!!!! -Jean M. Houston, TX.
This is a fabulous site! Thanks very much! I used your Salmon with Rosemary recipe, but substituted dill weed for the rosemary - delicious! Also, one question - you have pinto beans listed as allowed in phase 1; everything I've read says that they are not allowed until Phase 2. Can you verify this? ~L (Atlanta, GA)
Note from MizFrog: Pinto beans and black-eyed peas are now on the Foods to Enjoy list for Phase 1 on the official South Beach Web site. There have been many changes since the original book was released. And thanks for the tip about using dill. I'll add that as a note to the recipe.
MizFrog, Wonderful job on this site. Thank You! Michele
Thanks for all these great recipes. My husband and I are on Day 6 of phase 1 and I was looking for a little inspiration. I have found it here, I think I can continue on. I've lost a few pounds already but I could really eat a piece of bread right now. All the new recipes have gotten me excited to keep going. Thanks! Amanda Hill
I can't tell you how many people I have sent to your web site. All agree it is a great one. I like the links you have added....the fibre info is very useful. It has been a year since I lost 17lbs.I need to get back on track after Xmas...this site really gets me going again. Thank you so much Myrt
Thank you so much for this website. I am just starting out on the SBD. As a busy mother of four and home schooling I am finally taking time for me! Finding your site is a true blessing!!!! Thank you! wendy
MizFrog you are the best. I have been trying to find a site that can give me up to date information on the SBD and yours is the one. I have recently been advised to try the SBD to control my Fibromyalgia symptoms. Thank you for this site, I will be visiting often.
I am so thankful that I found this site and that you take so much time gathering all this helpful information to share with others on SBD. I visit here almost daily, for information and new recipes. Thanks again for this AWESOME website! Donna Greenfield, WI
Thank you for all the "quick" info. It was very helpful and encouraging for going into Phase 2.
I Plan on referring here often for recipes and answers to questions I might have. Thanks for the help.
The site is just great and very helpful. Thank you for your time and effort!!
What a great resource! This is my 2nd time doing Phase I, and you remind me that I don't have to eat boringly. Just the ricotta section alone would have been a good find. Thank you. About smoothies... My favorite is a cup or so of skim milk, with a half cup or so of any frozen fruit, esp. blueberries or peaches (I freeze them in the summer), with artificial sweetener and extracts (vanilla, almond, etc.) to taste, all blended. Can also use Torani Splenda-sweetened syrups for flavors. Depending on the proportions of milk to fruit, it can be thicker, like ice cream. The key for me was investing in a VitaMix. Expensive, but I love it for smoothies. It gets rid of every chunk.
Thanks, from England. !
What a great site. This is my second time around with the diet and I know it works. I started last July and was very successful and then due to health issues put it on hold. I am 2 days into my second week of Phase I and I have lost 8 lbs. I was wondering about kidney beans and I was able to find my answer here. Kim from CT
love the music as you enter your web page. love the recipes and the frog dance.
You are the greatest! Your site will really help me make this a real Lifestyle change! Jill
Can't wait to try it. Heard all good about it.
A great big Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I look for a new recipe every week to cook. Something new and different. You have help make it come true with numerous recipes. I love good, simple cooking.
This website is wonderful! I just started the South Beach Diet today and your food lists will help me tremendously until I receive my South Beach diet books from amazon.com. Actually, your South Beach info is so complete, I don't really need the books, but they will be helpful in giving me the background on the diet, which I find interesting. Thank you so much for all the info and recipes your wonderful website provides!

Thank you so much for the recipes. I just started yesterday and found your web site. Last night we tried the steak in peanut sauce, served it with steamed asparagus and it was a huge hit with my family of 6! I think with recipes like this I can stick to this eating plan. Keep up the excellent help! Gidget started 1/24/05
Thanks-I am just beginning the diet. My doctor recommended the South Beach diet, and also this web site after your site had been recommended to him by another patient who had lost a lot of weight. After checking it out, my dr. liked what he saw. Pam

MizFrog, Thank you for your informative and entertaining web site. I am becoming a frequent visitor. Elston
Thanks a million for helping my husband and I get started! We are reading the books and just purged the unhealthy foods from our pantry to rid us the temptation and make room for our good foods. I really appreciate the printable food list and menu planner. Wish us Luck. Nicole
Your site is awesome and I especially like the recipes for "party foods"...sometimes hard to come up with tasty AND healthy things. As far as beverages go, my SBD beverage of choice is the Diet Snapple Lime Green Tea. It's awesome and even mixes well with other drinks for a change (like sometimes I add a few tablespoons of Diet Rite Tangerine to my Diet Snapple LGT.) THANKS!
Love your site! The South Beach Diet helped me fit into a teeny size wedding dress last year. Unfortunately Ihave been quitting smoking a put some of my weight back on! The GOOD NEWS is...I found your site! Now I can get back on track!! It is all good!!

My husband and I just began our weight loss journey together and we started the South Beach diet...after 4 kids I have become insulin resistant and am 40 pounds overweight and my dr recommended south beach. I finally talked my husband into trying it with me as he needs to lose about 60 pounds. We are excited and motivated with making a lifestyle change and showing our beautiful children that you can eat to live and enjoy life rather that living to eat. Thanks for your website...we have it on our favs to be able to access information easily. Emily McLain
i am really looking forward to the frozen entrees. i enjoyed the site. eileen
I loved your frog theme and can't wait to have more time to browse. The recipe collection you have for sbd is the best I've seen yet. I needed to add variety to our meals and this will help. I'm still looking for easy lunch ideas on the go. Thanks, MN Alaska
Great site! I think I understand the diet better from here than the sb diet page.
MizFrog, looooove the site, and leapin lizards what a lot of work for you, thank you so much! I am a new fan of the diet, but an old fan of the internet. When I look for recipes, etc. it is so much easier than in a book, I just look up, print and keep in my own notebook, everyone is always asking for my recipes...God bless you and all your efforts!
I am so grateful for your very helpful website! I love being South Beach and appreciate the support! My husband and I are beginning week 2 of phase 1. This site serves as an important reference for questions and answers.
Great website MizFrog !!! The S.B. links and articles are my frequent read and I pass your web page on to the expanding numbers trying the SB way. Keep up the good work Take it from a Type II insulin dependant diabetic who in the first 6 weeks of the SB Diet lost 32 lbs. and stopped the insulin per Drs. orders. Frank
Note from MizFrog: Wow! Keep up the good work.
Great SBD info!! Thanks so much for effort! Mark, Stoddard, NH

Hi, My husband and I have just started the South Beach diet. If feel we will do real well with it. The recipes you have on this website are fantastic and don't seem so "way out there," but ones most people should be able to follow and be able to find the ingredients in just about any grocery store whether you're from the mid-west, the south, the north, the east, from a small town or a huge town. Thank you for your efforts in putting this all together. I know it will be of great help to us. God Bless!!!! Bev Ehrenberg 1310 Crystal Court Waupaca WI 54981
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR DOING THIS SITE. IT HAS HELPED ME A LOT WITH QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT FOOD I CAN EAT AND GREAT RECIPES. THANKS AGAIN SANDY NAJMY
Thank you for creating and maintaining the South Beach Diet page. As a newcomer to the diet, your pages have proved invaluable. -Linda
I just wanted to send my condolences to you on the loss of your mother. With this site, that you have so graciously posted for all of us to use, you have helped so many people. I constantly give out the link and people are so thankful for it. I cannot tell you how many people that you have helped. Thank you for taking the time to keep this updated. You are truly a blessing. Anita Bernard
Miz Frog, This is a wonderful site! I am new to SBD and am half way thru P1. I am on the 3fatchicks forum and by chance clicked on a link that lead me here. I am thrilled. I am from South Carolina and I too collect frogs. In fact , my hubby calls me "Frog" like Sally Feild in Smoky and the Bandit. Anyway , great work you are doing here. I will visit often:)
Thanks for the South Beach Diet Recipes!!
My name is Meg Wagner from Temple TX. Thank you for this site. I love the South Beach information and the recipes. I have lost about 65 lbs 60 of it being from pregnancy with our second child. I am now maintaining but check with the site often. Thank you again for the wonderful site. Also I am sorry about you Mother. Meg
Great site - thanks for the info! :)
Just started the SBD two days ago. So far so good but I am glad to have found this website. Its been helpful to see the updates to the phase 1 foods. Anything added to what I can eat is always exciting. Now if I can just get over the sugar cravings! L Sandfrey
Sorry to hear about your mum. I've been dealing with struggles around my own mum's health lately too. Hang in the Miz Frog! Thanks for the invaluable SB info. Gawdess
I'm getting frustrated. It's been 4 days since I started Phase 1, and not have I not lost a single ounce, but I am tired, cranky, have no energy, and light-headed at times. I'm beginning to wonder if this is going to work at all. I usually have a scrambled egg for b-fast, string cheese for snack, spinach salad with grilled chicken for lunch, cheddar cubes for a snack, then fish or steak with green beans or broccoli for dinner. I allow myself 1 diet coke every morning, but have not eaten a single food on the "bad" list, and am exercising every day. Is there something else that I'm not doing that I should be...please tell me how to make this work.
Note from MizFrog: Please send me a personal e-mail, as I don't often respond to comments left here in the guest book, but I always reply to e-mails.
Hello Miz Frog, I just started SB a week ago and I already lost 5 pounds! The good thing is that my sweet craving is totally gone (and I was the kind of person that needed chocolate everyday!). I loved your site and I will use it as my "bible." Tks, Fernanda (Tampa - Florida)
I am sorry to hear about your mother... my thoughts are with you...
I just visited your site for the first time. I really enjoyed my visit and will definitely be back!! delma
I am so sad for your the loss of your mother. My thoughts and prayers are with you today. delma paulk perry FL
I am so sorry for the loss of your Mom. Remember when doors close there is always an open window. I just started this diet this week and really am excited to check out your web site. Thanks for taking the time to keep it up and going. Ces
What a great site....thank you for being such a wonderful source of information.....
i read your web site a lot ...thanks so much for all the info ....great recipes and updates...that are not in the book.... thanks. sandy.
This is Day 1 of Phase 1, 9PM. Today went very well. Frankly the only thing that bothered me a little was that I couldn't have a glass of wine...or a beer. There was certainly plenty of great food, and I exercised 30 minutes this morning, on a Gazelle. Am enjoying your site. Thanks for the tips. Sandy.
Fran Hanneken St. Peters. Mo. I love this page site with the frogs. It's because it makes you feel happy.
Thank you for this page!! It's such a wonderful resource for me, since I have two children under the age of 2 and limited time to search through books for recipes. I told everyone I know who is doing this diet about your page. Bless you for your efforts!!! ~Rebekah
Hi. Loved the site!
I downloaded your seven day meal planner! I love it. It is soooo convenient. I use it to keep track of what I've eaten rather than plan ahead. I'm hoping to use it in the future for planning my meals, but right now I just don't have the oomph. I love your sight. It's very informative. Shannie_annie
Thank you for your work on this site. I am very sorry to hear about your mother. Praying for you.
My husband and I are just starting the diet and think that this website will make it easy on us. Thanks for all the great recipes!
i would like to thank you for setting up this site and i feel the recipes you have on your site are fantastic
Your updates and info are just wonderful.
Thanks for such a great page and awesome support, best wishes and God bless, michele
I am so sorry to hear about your mother's death. My thoughts and prayers are with you. ruthie_b
I chance upon your site. Fantastic site on SBD. Thanks you
I had a great time looking around. I haven't even started yet. But I am reading through the book and need this to work for me...or should I say I need to do what I know is right. Thanks...Linda
I was sent your website by a friend. I have started the South Beach Diet about 4 weeks ago. Your site is just great. I enjoy looking at all the recipes. Keep up the good work! Teri
Well, after a very frustrating first week on Phase 1, I am starting to see some results in looser fitting pants. I'm not sure exactly how much I've lost because I haven't been consistent with weighing on the same scales at the same time of day, but I know it's at least 4lbs. Not what I was hoping for...but it's a start, I'll take what I can get. Hopefully all the exercise is turning some of my fat into muscle tissue which weighs more and that's why I haven't seen the numbers go down as much. I'm just happy my pants fit better. Thanks for all the tips on the website.....it keeps me going to find new and interesting things to eat that don't constitute "cheating". I'm proud of myself for being able to stick with it, which would have been inmpossible without this site. C. Lewallen - Huntsville, Alabama

I think your site is great! I can get so much information on the South Beach diet. I thank you for your hard work! Brenda
Great site for new SB dieters...thank you for being here
Thank you so much for taking the time to put together all this information on the South Beach Diet. It truly is a great resource for us newbies trying to figure out the South Beach way of life. Your hard work and dedication is appreciated by us. The Atwals, Dallas, TX
Day 2 Phase 2, weight loss to date - 15lbs. Thanks for all the tips and encouraging words from everyone who visits the site, it keeps me on target each day. Watching my waistline shrink is quite addictive, so much so that I've decided to increase my original weight loss goal from 30lbs. to 45lbs.... that would put me back where I was 6-7 yrs ago in my early 20's. I look forward to hearing more success stories from others. - N. Allen, Alabama
I started South Beach yesterday and am looking for all of the support I can get!
I went to my mom's (72 yrs) for thankgiving in 03. She looked her normal slim self. She showed me some pictures from the summer before. She was much larger. I asked how she lost the weight. South beach she said. I read the food list and thought that these were all the foods I really liked. I always thought it was important to eat a "starch" with every meal. It opened my eyes. I started 1 year ago. 50 pounds so far. 6' from 225 to 175 and stable. I even taking up biking daily. I feel so much better now. Getting in better shape is now more important than weight loss. I am thankful for your site. It's been my guide. Like they say, phase 3, or 2, is forever. But maybe from meat to tofu.
Thanks again for the Excellent SBD Vegetarian recipes. I also am glad to finally get an answer about: can you just start in Phase II? Anybody have any Vegetarian, SBD, slow cooker recipes?
Note from MizFrog: There are some vegetarian slow cooker recipes on my site, and I'll try to find some more to post.
Thanks for such a fantastic resource all in one place! I've used this site often and given it out to many many people since August 2004. Within my circle of family and friends, there are over 20 of us on the SBD. Between us all we figure we were minus a "couple of people" at our last get-together. I think everyone I know that is on it agrees that it has stopped being a diet for us and become our lifestyle now. Just a note from Southern California about the new South Beach line of foods, they're all out here and all that I've tried are fantastic! Cereals, cereal bars, pizzas, lunch wraps, and frozen dinners, haven't found anything I don't like! Bravo to Kraft and Dr. A!!!
It's good to have a group that works together. That makes it easier. About those new foods, I'm not impressed with them. More about that on my site later on.
Thanks for the great dessert recipe variations for the ricotta creme. Appreciative in Oregon, Leah.

Tanya Kemp from West Palm Beach Florida. I just started the SBD two days ago. I'm craving something sweet. I ran a search to find a SBD Ph 1 dessert and came to your page. Thank you. I also have an online gift shop if your interested www.coolgiftsanytime.com
I love it. The material is interesting and the music is great. Thanks very much. Susie in Tacoma
Looking for encouragement? Been on SBD for 7 weeks, have lost 22lbs and 2 dress sizes. Going to do Phase 2 for two more weeks, then do 1 week of Phase 1 to kick start loss of my final 15. Started at 166 size 14, now 144 and loose size 10. If you can stick with it, it gets easier and the results will be addictive. Good luck to all of you just starting!! Carrie in Huntsville, Alabama
