The South Beach Diet in the Indian Context
Phase 2 allows you to reintroduce some whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables to your diet. A typical meal plan will be: 2 eggs now combined with 2 wholewheat bread slices or skimmed milk with all bran cereal flakes for breakfast. A bowl of vegetables such as carrots and cauliflower with one chapatti prepared with wholegrain such as barley and a bowl of low fat dahi makes a perfect lunch. For snacks, fruits such as apples and oranges and a few nuts make a perfect combination. Dinner is either a bowl of vegetable and 1 barley roti and curd or grilled fish with salad. This phase continues until you are 5 to 10 pounds (3 to 5 kgs) from your desired weight.
