We are doing South Beach as well - sort of.  I'll admit that this first week 
has not been entirely hard-core, though we have SIGNIFICANTLY cut back - 
salads with protein for lunch, dinner of protein and veg with no carb.  At 
least it's only two weeks that you have to cut out the carbs...  It has been 
really difficult so far. 

I am having real trouble with breakfast.  I don't like to eat eggs by 
themselves.  This is something that goes back to childhood for me - I just 
don't like the texture of cooked eggs, at all, in any form.  Cereal is 
supposed to be out, english muffins are supposed to be out.  What am I 
supposed to have in the morning? 

I also have issues with the idea of giving up things like oatmeal, which has 
so many other healthful benefits that offset, or at least balance, the carb 

So I'll say as well, any tips or hints would be gratefully received!
