South Beach Diet Phase:
The South Beach Diet is not a low-carb or a low-fat diet. The South Beach Diet means choosing the right carbs and the right fats to eat healthy and lose weight. The diet claims that one could lose anywhere between 8 and 13 pounds in the first 2 weeks. There are three phases in the South Beach Diet. South Beach Diet phase 1 lasts for 2 weeks, sufficient amounts of protein, good fats and carbs with the lowest glycemic index are allowed. One can have normal helpings six times a day, so as to not feel hungry. Lean cuts of beef, skinless poultry, all types of fish and shellfish, boiled ham, fat-free or low-fat cheese, peanuts, pecans, pistachios, eggs, artichokes, asparagus, beans and legumes, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, cucumbers, eggplant, lettuce, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini, canola and olive oils, all seasonings that contain no added sugar, broth, butter sprays, pepper, sweets (limit to 75 calories per day) are allowed in the first phase. In the South Beach Diet phase 2, the goal is to eat more carbs again while continuing to lose weight.In the South Beach Diet Phase 3 is the maintenance phase, how you are supposed to eat for the rest of your life.
Gluten Free Diet Food:
Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and oats that give the dough its tough, elastic character. Agluten-free diet eliminates all wheat, rye, barley and oat gluten from the diet, as a form of treatment for gluten-sensitive enteropathy (celiac disease). Thus most grain, pasta, cereal and processed foods must be avoided. People can also buy gluten-free products. Hidden sources of gluten include additives, preservatives, and stabilizers found in processed food, medicines, and mouthwash. The gluten free diet food is a lifetime requirement, though some people with celiac disease, also known as gluten intolerance do not improve on the gluten-free diet. Use corn, rice, soy, arrowroot, tapioca, and potato flours or a mixture instead of wheat flour in recipes. Buy plain, frozen, or canned vegetables and season with herbs, spices, or sauces made with allowed ingredients. Other gluten-free diet foods that are allowed are all meat, poultry, fish, and shellfish, eggs, dry peas and beans, nuts, peanut butter, soybean, cold cuts, frankfurters, or sausage without fillers. Malted milk, some milk drinks, flavored or frozen yogurt should be omitted from the diet. Avoid sauces, gravies, canned fish and other products with HVP/HPP made from wheat protein.
