Phase 1 - South Beach Diet

Phase one of South Beach Diet lasts two weeks. During this phase dieters attempt to eliminate insulin resistance by avoiding high carbohydrate food such as dairy, sugar, candy, bread, potatoes, fruit, cereals, and grains. Dr. Agatston claims the body will lose its insulin resistance, and begin to use excess body fat, causing many dieters to lose between 8 and 13 pounds after completing the first phase. Food that can be eaten during this phase include meat, fish, vegetables, eggs, cheese, and nuts. During this phase dieters are advise to take three meals a day, plus snacks, and are encourage to eat until their hunger is satisfied. No alcohol is allowed (though red wine will be introduced later in small amounts). At the end of the phase dieter loses weight, changes body chemistry, and ends cravings for sugars and starches.

I found that I missed crunchy foods especially when I am working at my computer. I also missed croutons in my salads.

I found a great solution for both! Pork Rinds! 0 carbs and nice and crunchy and salty and is a good substitute for croutons.
