South Beach Diet: Random thoughts

Jealous much? 

1. A few days ago I made a bowl of sugar-free Jell-O as called for during the "strict" phase of the South Beach Diet. Under ordinary circumstances I never buy artificially sweetened foods, but these aren't ordinary circumstances. I must admit, a tiny dish of artificially sweetened orange Jell-O is very sustaining when you're not allowed to eat, say, an orange.
Anyway, just a few minutes ago I discovered that my Jell-O was very thick and leathery towards the bottom of the bowl. I'll give this to the chickens, I thought. Then: Oh shoot, can't. It would be bad for them

Higher standards for chickens than for myself!!!!

2. Rented Pineapple Express. All the way home from the video store: pineapple, pineapple, pineapple.

Is this a good movie? It looks funny, plus: James Franco.

3. There's a "petite sirloin" steak in the fridge for dinner. I'm dreading it like a root canal. 

I dislike this diet intensely.


  1. i think you owe it to all us loyal followers to tell us what that disgusting photo depicts.

  2. That's Canadian bacon and a tofu scramble.

    Tipsy, you are completely bumming me out. I just decided to forgo the stupid diets and just like myself as is for a while. Ditch this and treat yourself to something wholesome and satisfying, please.

  4. Oh no! I didn't intend to bum anyone out. I will be done in three days and back to the usual cheerful eating.

  5. Well, you're not exactly the poster girl for the S Beach plan. There's a good-looking recipe for tofu scramble in Heidi Swanson's Super Natural Cooking, which I'm using a lot lately.

    As for "diet" books, what about trying Bittman's Food Matters and seeing if it does work as a diet, as he claims? I made the Thai Beef Salad from it tonight--bright, fresh and yummy.

  6. Petite sirloin--the unwanted stepchild of the steak family.

    My father-in-law swears by them, but it is a marked lapse in judgment on his part.

  7. I sympathize... To combat chronic anemia, for the past few years I have been eating beef for lunch five days a week. Just a small amount, 1 or 2 ounces, but even a good steak can get seriously tiresome when you have to eat it five days in a row, week after week. At least SB is only a temporary state of affairs for you! Hopefully you'll find the results worth it.

  8. You're beautiful the way you are ... forget the diets.
