original or revised South Beach?
Just wondering if folks are mostly using the original or revised South Beach Diet?
Thank you!

Hi, Colleen. I just started back in SB today, and I am sort of combining a few versions. The most recent book I have is "Supercharged" but I use the original as my base. However, I have found info on the blogs where changes have been made (like beans and tomatoes) so I do incorporate them. I did fine today, and I am actually sort of relieved to be back on Phase 1. I have about 15 pounds to lose, which slowly crept up on me due to a very stressful year and a half of settling my dad's estate. Are there any dramatic changes on the newest version?

I think Supercharged is the newest one. Or I thought it was. Am just now reading it.
I did the original years ago, and did fairly well, but had a boyfriend who kept sabotaging me. :dunno:
Have since dumped boyfriend, have a new husband (who loves chubbies, but knows I need to feel better), have had a stressfull year like you, mentally and physically, and have hit the place where I realize I have to take care of myself to be able to take care of others.

Sorry! That was long winded! :)

Hey Glider, sorry I did not respond sooner, I was on vacation. But Southside was correct, Supercharged is the new version. I lost my weight originally on the old version, but did pick up the new book as well. There were a few more tips, some updates to food lists, and a revised exercise plan. However, I think you will be fine with either version!

Please join us on the daily check-in thread, I just started a new one for the Spring:


And, I too, want to lose about 15 lbs. Same deal here: lots of stress from my MiL passing, Hurricane Sandy, my husband being out of work, my Dad having Cancer surgery, etc. Not to mention a very stressful job!! The lbs really crept on and now it has just gotten ugly for me. :sad:

Thank you, wiz. It's nice to know I'm not alone in multiple struggles.

Oh, how nice to know I am not the only one who has gained from stress eating! Even at my "normal" weight I am not skinny, but I cannot believe the difference 10 pounds makes on my frame! Hoping that I can get back down to 135 by my trip to Europe with my daughter at the end of May!

New to this thread
I put on 15 pounds due to a back injury and depression . I hope to lose it before July. Going on a trip to Israel. I am starting with The older version because that's what I know. Picked up the newer book but haven't had time to look through it yet. Now all I need is to get back on the bike for exercise and some callanetics for shaping up.

Stress does it!
Plus I think when we are stressed and busy or depressed, we don't really pay attention to what we are eating or how it's affecting us.
