The South Beach Diet -- Is it as Drastic as Atkins?

With so much controversy over low carb diets, it's hard to know what to believe. If you've always wanted to lower your carbs, but were scared off by the Atkins diet, you should definitely look into the South Beach Diet. The South Beach Diet isn't low carb -- well, not exactly! It's what I call a "lower carb" diet. You do eat less carbs, but you're eating a lot less of those nasty, bad carbs that made you gain weight in the first place! Don't worry if you don't know a bad carb from a good carb. The South Beach Diet works by telling you exactly what carbs are good for you. You don't even have to count calories! You just follow their simple list of foods to eat, and make sure that you eat until you're satisfied. This definitely isn't the kind of diet where you need to starve yourself. (You know that's the wrong way to lose weight, right?)
