Again, you are descrfibing the South Beach Diet.  I'm not sure what you are referring to when you emphasize the word planned, but South Beach is not about telling you what you have to eat, after the initial 2 week phase it's about eating healthfully by minimizing carbs and developing new lifetime eating habits.

Basically, regardless of whether or not you ever read the books, from what you've described about your current eating habits YOU are following the South Beach diet.
