Let’s not sugar coat it: Losing weight is hard. Pre-planning meals, counting calories, and carving out time for the gym—it’s a lot of work. But the South Beach Diet has helped thousands of people lose weight with a science-backed plan that works with your busy lifestyle. They take care of the extra work for you by sending balanced, ready-to-heat meals right to your door. The meals are designed to help jumpstart your metabolism and are portioned for weight loss so you don’t have to count calories or meal prep. The plan focuses on helping you reduce your carb intake in three phases, so that your body becomes more effective at burning fat. The plan includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and two tasty snacks five days a week, with two days of flexibility to enjoy meals on your own (think dining out with friends or whipping up your favorite meal!). You aren’t left feeling deprived—plus, monthly deliveries mean you’ll never have to worry about running out of food.
The key to transforming your body relies on their 3-Phase program, which is designed to eliminate those annoying cravings for carbs and sugar that often cause us to overeat. Phase 1 jumpstarts your weight loss journey with a 7-day body reboot. Unhealthy eating habits cause your body’s sugar levels to spike, especially when eating a lot of refined carbs, which leads to higher amounts of fat being stored. This cycle is shattered by adopting a high protein, low carb dietary pattern into your daily routine. Sticking to a diet in the first week is hard, but with meals like delicious Artichoke and Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast and succulent Roasted Turkey with Herb Gravy, eating low carb can actually be tasty!
For all the carb lovers out there, Phase 2 involves adding “good” carbs from fruits, starchy vegetables, and even whole grains back into your meal plan. This lets you steadily reach your weight loss goal with more flexibility. Dozens of meals and snacks are available to choose from, including delicious Garlic-Ginger Beef & Broccoli, Fudgy Graham Crumble Bars and more. The snacks help you to never feel deprived, like @Emilydawnl who satisfies her chocolate craving with a tasty Simply Fit shake! Plus, after hitting your target weight you’ll be able to transition into Phase 3 and order your favorite meals via their A La Carte service while eating other foods in moderation.
The best part of it all is that The South Beach Diet doesn’t require endless amounts of exercise to lose weight, suggesting just 30 minutes of activity a day. In fact, studies have found that you’re more likely to lose weight by cutting calories than by increasing exercise. So, don’t worry that your physical limitations are going to stand in the way of your weight loss goals. If you focus on following the South Beach Diet meal plan paired with just 30 minutes of activity, you will have what you need to be a healthier you. Even better, you’ll find that you have stronger energy levels—it’s almost like your body’s way of thanking you for eating healthy.
