One of the stickies above says we should limit our bean intake to 1/3 to 1/2 cup a day.

edited to say: I guess it says START with 1/3 to 1/2 cup a day.

I read that, but think of it, 2 or 3 thin slices has how many cups of bean in it? certainly not that much....but I really need to cut it out. its been giving me gas and its the only thing I can say is different from atkins I was doing. I am eating NO fat where as before I was eating everything with fat and cream, so I was sure I would lose. Blame it on the bean cake..etiher that, or I am beginning to question this whole eat fat lose weight thing...does eating fattier foods make you lose? I dont know! I will stick this out though atleast for another month. DH is at 9 pounds as of this morning, so I will stick it out for him. next week we start Phase 2 so we add either a fruit or a grain a day. think I will go the fruit road and i will have him add a grain. he is craving pasta or rice quite badly poor guy!! this is really hard on him. I have been lcing for a while now, so those things dont even tempt me anymore....only that darn bean cake!

Conbo - I am thinking if I have one piece a day, that can't be bad....it's all OP ingredients, plus how much can be in one slice? There is only one 15 oz can in a whole loaf!

Maybe you can figures out how many SB servings are in a can and then cut the bean cake into that many slices then you will know its the correct serving size?????????

yeah I know Cindy, but since starting this plan, the only thing i ADDED was the bean bread and i REMOVED all the fat, so I cannot explain the gain of a pound versus losing anything. I was really really good with my portions, only veggies on list, V8, low fat everthing. so, will cut it out until next sunday and see what gives. DH is quite happy, cause now the chile/parmasan one and the lemon poppy seed are all his!!! greedy little man he is!

Tina, I bake it in a bread loaf pan, and cut a slice about 1/2" thick...so I figure there are a good 10 to 15 servings in there?....maybe my body is just having a hard time adjusting to the addition of the beans.. doing the water and tea thing now hoping to flush out whatever my body is hanging on to, and will retry a slice on sunday...I also had bloating and gas issues since eating the bread..( sorry if TMI!!) maybe I cant tolerate beans too well.

thanks for the input though ladies!! this is a constant battle and search for what our bodies like and accept as fuel I guess!!!

I might try bean cake again someday. Mine was wet / spongey and tasted like a splenda overload (aftertaste). I used pinto beans (chocolate).

dont know wendy, but mine were all GOOD!! I didnt put the whole cup of splenda though, cause it tends to give an aftertaste.. I put about 3/4 cup and I iused the black beans to make the chocolate one. the lemon one had 3/4 cups of splenda too and no aftertaste. wish they did though, that way I wouldnt even be tempted by them!

I followed recipe as written (used pinto beans for chocolate), and have never had a problem.....with sponginess or aftertaste!

Like Nat (Conbo), I wish I did so I didn't like it so much!

Ladies, I think it's not so much the beans, those are HEALTHY. I think it is all the Splenda. I have hesitated to mention this, but there are numerous studies that show that artificial sweeteners can provoke an insulin response just like sugar does.

but I made 2 without splenda...and I ate more of those than the sweet ones. DH kinda inhaled those and I had maybe 2 slices of each. the ones that got me were the plain one ( no spices, no flavors no splenda) and I would put a thin slice of peanut butter and the other one I made with parmasan and spices...so I dont think its the splenda that got me.

well, I am going to stay away from them until sunday, and weigh again to see. if still no change, then I could add them back in. monday phase 1 ends for me...so I get to add a fruit instead! cant wait to have an apple with cheese....YUMMY!!!

1 15 oz can of Great Northern or Pinto beans = 3.5 Servings

I get about 10 servings from one of my loafs.

Cindy - Is that the south beach serving of 1/3 or 1/2 cup? Or is it the serving listed on the can?

Ok, I just looked at a can. Looks like you should be able to have a couple of slices a day.

Tina that's what I thought - I am limiting to once a day; it's not hurting me, it's all OP and sometimes it's what helps me from choosing something not OP.

I used and have used splenda for years and it doesn't bother me....

morning ladies. well, I made the flax bread last night instead. need some help in the plumbing dept. and the flax bread always helps me!! only thing is, I cannot have it with peanut butter, since the flax counts as my nuts for the day right? and no butter on this plan either.....hmmm, need to think of what will be tasty on top. will prob have it with cottage cheese.

so, i will stay OFF the bean bread until monday and see if the scale moved then. since monday I am starting phase 2...i will re-introduce it with a fruit and see what happens, its all about trial and error right?!!

I am thinking c hocolate raspberry for the next one!! Lady has major plans for the future!! what about a brown-sugar-splenda rum one....OOOH!!!

Conbo - we can have one "fat" per meal. Such as mayo or BUTTER. You need to limit it, but you can have it.

Here is what is listed in the phase 1 as

Other Fat Choices:

Avocado - 1/3 whole = 1 TBS oil
Guacamole - 1/2 cup = 1 TBS oil
Margarine - Chose those that do not contain Trans Fatty Acids such as Fleischmann's Premium Olive Oil or Smart Balance
Mayonnaise - Regular or Low Fat
Olives (Green or Ripe) 15 = 1/2 TBS
Salad Dressing - Use those < 3 gms sugar per se

and here is the link, you need to scroll down to find your fats

PHASE 1 FOOD LIST AND SAMPLE MENU

really?? Smiles reallllly big! i read the margarine thing, but didnt see butter there. i cant stand margarine, so thought i would just stay away from the whole thing!

OK so didnt have the bread this morning, cause last night i had a stomache thing, and well....looks like something acted like liquid drano for me, so i will skip the flax this morning. but good to know tomrrow breakfst i can have butter on it... just a teeny bit though! cause i tend to spread butter like cheese..

thnaks for the heads up!

Unless something has changed recently, BUTTER is a SB no-no. It is the ultimate sat.fat. Does someone have other info?

I call it all butter, but it is probably margarine. That's why I posted the link and and the list of fats.

Conbo - sorry for the confusion.

ICBINB spray is on the good list; the spread kind isn't. Transfats.

This stuff can be a life saver......Just an FYI if you haven't tried to toast this stuff, I highly recommend it! Any of the kinds! It is SO good!

Last night for dessert, I had a piece of my pumpkin bread warmed up with Cool Whip!

Thanks for posting these. I will be making these recipes for a friend on Southbeach.

I thought you might be interested to know that a revised edition of South Beach diet is coming out in April with a new, revised food list in it. I saw it while searching amazon today. It's called South Beach Diet Supercharged. You can read a description of it in amazon. It stresses exercise and also features a new updated South Beach list, due to latest nutritional findings.
