I bought and read the South Beach Diet book yesterday. I was surprised that he did not mention in the Phase 1 about diet sodas (though he did briefly in Phase 2). Are they allowed during Phase 1 or does he prefer we don't drink them?? :confused:
Also, he mentioned we could use a low sugar prepared salad dressing, but he really doesn't say what "low sugar" is. I have never done Atkins or anything similar, so I'm kind of new to the low carb thing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :o When you eat a salad out, he said to steer clear of the low fat dressings, but how do I know which regular dressings are good???
