South Beach Diet Fruit
Fruit and fruit juices are totally off-limits in Phase One. After that, they are phased back in according to the Phase Two guidelines, starting with low glycemic fruit such as berries or grapefruit. This low carb fruit list is arranged in approximate "glycemic order" (South Beach list below is alphabetical). Note serving sizes.
Approved Fresh Fruit on the South Beach Diet
- Apples (small - 4 oz)
- Apricots (3 small - 5 oz)
- Bananas (medium - 4 oz or 7" long)
- Blueberries (¾ cup)
- Cantaloupe (and presumably other melons, since they are similar, except for watermelon) (1 cup)
- Cherries, pitted (1 cup) (sour OK, sweet occasional)
- Cranberries (½ cup)
- Grapefruit (½ cup)
- Grapes (1 cup, 3.5 oz, or 20 grapes)
- Kiwi (medium)
- Lemon (medium)
- Lime (medium)
- Mango (small or ½ medium - 3-4 oz)
- Nectarine (1 small - 5 oz)
- Orange (small - 6 oz)
- Papaya (small - 8 oz)
- Peach (medium - 4 oz)
- Pear (medium - 4 oz)
- Pineapple (1 cup - no more than once per week)
- Plum (2 small - 5 oz)
- Raspberries (1 cup)
- Strawberries (1 cup whole)
- Tangerine (1 medium - 4 oz)
- Watermelon (1 cup) - rare treat
Canned FruitFresh fruit is always preferred over canned - canned fruit is only for very occasional use, and never packed in heavy syrup. However, Agatston doesn't mention that there are some fruits now packed in a artificially-sweetened syrup.
½ cup of unsweetened applesauce may be eating on a limited basis (no more than once per week)
Dried FruitMost dried fruits are only allowed on a very occasional basis, even in phase three. Exceptions are one-ounce servings of the following:
- Apples (about 4 rings)
- Apricots (about 7 dried halves)
- Figs (about 3 - occasional on Phase Three only)
- Prunes, pitted (3-4 - once/week on Phase 2, OK on Phase 3)
- Raisins (1 oz - once/week on Phase 3)

Was developed to help people have healthier hearts. It is a sound approach to eating. However, the whole low-carb craze is ridiculous. Low carb yogurt? Low carb fruit? C'mon.
The doc who developed South Beach said he was distressed that it has become a "fad.: He developed a heart healthy diet, and a way of eating - no, a way of life- for anyone who was interested in getting and staying healty.

Check out the South Beach diet - it's sane.
NO SODA POP AT ALL. Not even diet. NO alcohol at all.
Limit your milk, yogurt, cottage cheese intake and go instead for low fat cheese & calcium supplements.
Veggies and Low fat protein only for 2 weeks with some cheese and eggs (read the book for best advice)
NO whites: bread, rice, potatoes...
No processed sugar and severely limit or remove the intake of other sugars.
REALLY NO POTATOES!
6 weeks is a long time to eat only Phase 1 - I would suggest following the South Beach diet for these 6 weeks (2 weeks phase one, 4 weeks phase 2)
OT: The South Beach Diet2004-01-06 14:29:43 by HopelessTease
I am in the process of writing a weight loss book and have been systematically reading all the other* best-selling diet books to make sure they're not covering MY material (they're not).
The one I read this weekend was "The South Beach Diet" and I must confess that this one actually makes some sense to me!
But only because this guy seems to be instructing us to do what I instinctively figured out on my own - therefore, he is brilliant.
The basis of this diet is to eliminate ALL forms of sugar (sugar, flour, fruit) from your diet for two weeks in order to "reset" your body to be able to process sugar properly

Has been used by some of the people here to kick carb cravings. Here's a post from marvel26 discussing it:
I'd have to re-read the book, but < marvel26 > 10/16 09:23:38
it's basically no fruit, grains, & starchy carbs for a week or two. Then you add that stuff back in slowly once you're done with phase 1.
Actually, here's a summary of it:
I know it's good for curbing my carb cravings, since I've done it before. I'd been eating tons of carbs during the season, but now that I'm in the off season, I need to get it back under control :-P
