Article posted in: South Beach Diet South Beach DIY

Have you tried many different diets without success? Stop trying diet after diet, hoping and praying this will be the one. Enough is enough. You don’t need a diet. You need a healthy, low-carb lifestyle. A lifestyle where you can be yourself, do the things you love, eat the food you enjoy and become the best-ever you.

That’s exactly what our low-carb lifestyle is all about here at the South Beach Diet. Instead of promising overnight weight loss (which is both unhealthy and unrealistic), we offer long term solutions for healthy living. Our low-carb lifestyle, in particular, is what so many people are talking about. And it’s no wonder: It works.

Lately, low-carb diets seems to be all the rage. However, cutting out carbs can be intimidating. On our plan, there are no crazy or strict rules and you learn healthy eating habits along the way. With our low-carb lifestyle, you can enjoy the benefits of low-carb without cutting carbs completely out of your life. Were here to tell you what this new lifestyle entails.

Here are five ways to live our low-carb lifestyle:

1. Fill Up on Proteins, Fats & Veggies

Typically, a low-carb diet keeps carbohydrate levels super low. However, the South Beach Diet plan is different. Our version of low-carb is designed to deliver about 50 grams of net carbs or less per day. Your meal plan will be filled with Proteins, Healthy Fats and non-starchy Vegetables. Proteins help to keep you full and build muscle, while fats provide energy and help you digest certain nutrients, says Healthline. Non-starchy vegetables provide the fiber you need for a healthy digestive system. Have fun and refer to the Grocery Guide to pick your favorites from each category.

2. Follow Our Plan


We make losing weight life-friendly with our easy to follow meal plan and fully prepared, chef-inspired meals. You’ll enjoy your South Beach Diet meals five days out of the week, then prepare your own DIY breakfast, lunch and dinner twice a week. For breakfast, how about eggs and turkey bacon? Make a tasty tuna salad lettuce wrap for lunch. Thai chicken with crushed peanuts over spaghetti squash sounds like a great dinner, doesn’t it? Follow the DIY meal guidelines we provide you and get creative using the Grocery Guide.

3. Get Moving

Our program is not only convenient and easy to follow, it’s also fitness-friendly. Regular physical activity is an important component of a healthy lifestyle. According to Mayo Clinic, exercise is said to increase energy, fight disease and support a healthy weight. For these reasons alone, we recommend at least 30 minutes of activity each day. Not sure where to start? We’ve made that easy too! Stay active and get moving with our Fitness section right here on The Palm Weight Loss Blog. Before you get started, it’s important that you consult with your doctor to ensure that you are doing exercise that is right for you.

4. Drink Up

Water is essential for life and your new friendly lifestyle. It’s a simple way to keep you full and prevent overeating before meals. It’s also said to improve digestion and blood pressure, according to Harvard Health. Aim to drink half of your body weight in ounces of fluid each day on the South Beach Diet. However, please note that this is just a recommendation and you may need more or less fluid based on your activity level and other factors. Try to spread your fluid intake evenly throughout the day.

5. Don’t Stress

Some low-carb diets expect you to measure your ketones daily. Others ask you to eat virtually nothing, which is silly and unhealthy. Our low-carb lifestyle is simple, flexible and requires minimal work. We did the work for you by developing our easy-to-follow meal plan and fully prepared meals, shakes, snacks and bars. Rest assured that you’re losing weight the healthy way and enjoy the ride. Once you have reached your goal weight, you can go forth and live the life you’ve always wanted.
