Is the South Beach Diet a low carb diet? What carbs can I have in South Beach Diet Phase 1 and South Beach Diet Phase 2?

The South Beach Diet is a low carb, high-protein, low-added sugar diet plan. Our approach will help you learn the way to lose weight without hunger or deprivation.

During the first phase, or your weight loss phase, you’ll eat plenty of proteins, heart-healthy fats and carbohydrates from non-starchy vegetables.

In Phase 2, or your weight maintenance phase, you’ll continue to enjoy adding proteins, healthy fats and vegetables. You’ll also begin to add in high-quality carbs from whole grains, fruit and starchy vegetables like sweet potatoes.
