Nope.
Broccoli yes, cheese sauce, no.
Too much crap in that sauce, if you don't mind me being frank......
You could make your own sauce with rf cheese and some lf milk.

Yogurt in Phase 1

Hi, I see that I am allowed Nonfat plain yogurt. I bought the Dannon nonfat plain but noticed it has 15 grams of sugar. I also saw Fiber One has a nonfat flavored yogurt with 4 grams of sugar. I'm assuming the Fiber One wouldn't be better - is any nonfat yogurt OK as long as the sugar is low?? How many grams is too many?? Thanks!

The "sugar" is naturally occurring lactose or milk sugar. It's not added sugar. Any plain, unsweetened, unflavored yogurt is fine.

Also, when you compare ounce for ounce, the count is virtually the same and you don't have cornstarch, etc in the plain.

Ok, i'm on board with the food lists but I don't see vinegar on the lists. Apparently you can use it when making salad dressing but which kind can you use?? Am I missing something?

Nope; vinegars are good - I use wine vinegar and balsamic regularly.

Hi all! Reading up on the SBD - I think I may be inadvertently following this plan! I'm trying to stay away from sugar and "bad" carbs/refined grains at the moment, so I'm just gonna pop on in!

Have you read any of the information? The Book? I would suggest you do and become well informed.

Regarding the above - Nat PB is allowed but only 2T a day and it counts for your nut serving......you can have it in Phase 1.

Rice however, not in P1 - you may allow it in P2 but only brown rice and it is portion controlled.

Without posting a novel, I would suggest you do.

You can add it in, in Phase 2

Hello again

Sorry everyone, i dont get too much access to a computer and since i work in Law Enforcement, my time is usually taken up by my job. I just have a quick question. From reading the original post....i tried to make up my own menu for Phase one. Can someone let me know if i'm doing something wrong.

Breakfast: 2 Eggs
Snack: combination of almonds and cashews and a V8
Lunch: Lean Ground Beef
Snack: combination of almonds and cashews
Dinner: Salad with Grilled chicken strips

I will usually drink water or use a "powdered drink".

Would i expect to lose some weight with this combination??

Please get the book; it will be so helpful to you. This is not a good South Beach menu. Look at the menu outlines in the this sticky. You need vegetables at all meals. Nuts are limited to one ounce a day and you should be having veggies at snack time, too. I understand not having much computer time. Maybe you could check in once a day on the checkin thread. You could refer to your book for guidance and ask questions for clarification. Main point: Protein and vegetables at every meal.

Much better! Throw some protein in the afternoon snack, maybe a string cheese. And don't be afraid of whole eggs, they're good food.

With SB we really don't eat bars......

If you are talking like popsicles? The No Sugar Added Fudge or Popsicle Bars are good.

Hi everyone,
I just started Phase 1 on Aug 15, 2010. So far, so good.
Funny story... read on...
all tho, I did drink abt 4 sips of orange juice yesterday when i visited a relative, but my bf stopped me... lol.... I pulled my glass away thinking, "drink your own OJ, this is mine.". I had completely forgotten abt the diet and for a second, i wondered wat he was talking abt when hubby said, "aren't you supposed to avoid fruits/juices?" .... after abt 10 secs, i was like ohhh oooooohhhhhhhhhh... and then felt guilty, annoyed, blahhhhhhh... rest of the night, everyone ate except for me 'n' my hubby...
The End
