how many carbs on induction?

Looking around, looks like 20 grams of carbs per day is he norm? when I tried it last time, I was sick and dr told me to add some, but, not a lot. How many carbs per day should I keep it under during induction? 20 isn't enough, but, I don't want too many. I don't want to get discouraged this time for any reason and want to get this weight off and keep it off this time.TIA

South Beach doesn't have an Induction period and you don't count carbs. Maybe a reread of the SBD book would help? What you are describing sounds like Atkins.

Hmm, maybe I did read that on Atkins. I had started that one first and dr said switch. Dang, thank you!! I guess I just had that in my head when I was going through the SB list. And I meant phase 1, not induction. Wrong wording.

Hi there! My husband doesn't do well on only 20 carbs per day (he works outside in very hot heat and needs the energy) so we simply put him on 35 carbs per day and he loses weight like crazy still! Just a much modified version of Atkins, but he still follows all of the other rules, just a higher level to start.

But I see that you are actually trying to do South Beach diet instead, so nevermind what I just said. LOL!
