|Phase 2 of the South Beach Diet|
Who Should do Phase 2?
Anyone who has completed Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet then enters Phase 2. You will continue to follow the guidelines set forth in Phase 2 until you have met your goal weight.
A few types of people must enter the South Beach Diet at Phase 2: nursing mothers, children, and teenagers. Anyone who doesn't need to lose very much weight can also start at Phase 2.
What Can I Eat on Phase 2?
You can now begin returning some of those "forbidden foods" that weren't allowed in Phase 1. You will continue to eat the Phase 1 acceptable foods as well. Foods returning to your diet will include low-GI fruits, whole grain bread and pasta, and low-fat dairy.
However, you'll still be steering clear of those "bad carbs" Dr. Agatston talks about like sweets; white bread; regular pasta; and potatoes.
