I just joined NC recently and I'm so happy there's a South Beach thread. My bf and I are doing the diet for the second time around. The first time he lost 20 lbs and I lost 15. Then we gained some back over this past year (stress, eating whatever was fast and convenient). But we're back on track now. I've lost 8 lbs and he's lost 12 so far. I feel so much better when I'm eating South Beach style!
