Dear bathing lovelies

As you know, for security issues, Accountability had to be moved over to the South Beach Diet. Although our diligent mods would love to reconstitute the old South Beach for us, they dont have the present ability to do that.

So, idea 💡 as a former member of SBD I thought I'd shake out my towel here for a sunny afternoon. (I had some content over at the old South Beach, but can’t find it atm. I have screenshots though.)

Anyone wishing to join me on my little Beach visit, let’s flag our threads as Beach threads, and title them something like, “New South Beach + subtitle,” or just “Beach + subtitle”

I’m going to stretch out with my book for a while and catch some rays.

Why not!? It’s a good diet and a lot of useful info could be shared :)! (Please stop bragging about how nice your weather is- unless is just a poetic addition due to the name of the diet lol).

I'm interested in this beachy plan but would love some more info on it. Sadly I can't find any old threads! Was thinking to do a "fat fast" as soon as I am feeling healthy again (I have a cold at the mo) for 2 or 3 days to ditch carb reliance and then start up on Phase 1 of (New!) South Beach.

Oh good!

Still not a lot of beach umbrellas planted out on New South Beach.
But early days, still.

I can’t find any of my old content, either, but I posted on and off from 2014 to 2018, mostly. I saved some screen shots because I inspired my own self, and I wanted to remember them.

Also there was another bunch of posts about raiding the boss's candy jar of Reese’s when she was out of the office. So embarrassing, I never saved those.

Also, the thread “Food Has No Muscle”, so how did it get into my mouth? That was a fun one.

Good times.

I'm interested in this beachy plan but would love some more info on it. Sadly I can't find any old threads!

The old South Beach forum started out as a real forum for people following the commercial South Beach Diet. But then it (the forum) went dormant and then some MPA members drifted over to it and made it like their own hangout, like a clubhouse. There were lots of off topic threads. It was fun.

I was sort of fishing to see if any old clubhouse members were still around. Sadly, I don’t actually do the SB Diet myself. But it is a good one,if you can do it. I wouldn’t mind giving it a try.

The South Beach Diet is/was a low carb, high protein diet, as I recall. I think it is a good diet, but v hard for most people, because Phase I calls for cutting out ALL carbs for the first two weeks, no yogurt, no fruit, just protein and fats. Its a little like keto, except you later add limited carbs in, after Phase I. But in fact after two weeks of no carbs, people really actually lose craving for carbs. So there’s that.

Let’s see how it goes, shall we? And it's always lovely weather at the Beach.

Thanks for the info, and I'll admit I did come here for the weather too 😁
I don't know if I can cut wine for 2 full weeks so I might not do the diet lol

I think it should be the new south beach here! I haven’t heard of people doing weight watchers since mid 2010s honestly.

Does anyone know if the pro-ana convo moved somewhere else? South Beach pretty much is entirely accountability now which makes sense, accountability is a way bigger deal on here, but also kinda sucks that the original South Beach seems to be gone

I know. The old South Beach was great. There were some pro-Ana convos, some harmless mischief, some off-topic convos. okay, there were MANY off-topic convos.

Alas, the mods can’t restore the old South Beach to us. They had to move all the Accountability threads over there. Don’t know where the original South Beach content went to.

So we can just set up New South Beach here!!

Bring your towels on over. The weather's always fine—would anyone like a sparkling water, with a lime wedge?

I would like to propose "NSB" instead of "New South Beach" in the title for space reasons. Thank you for your consideration. smilie_verl_025.gif

 

But I truly love the idea in general, hopefully more people will come to use it! I wish I could think of a topic to contribute right now. smilie_denk_10.gif
