The South Beach Diet was okay... it took a while to start to see any results but I truly love the variety in meals that they have and the snacks and everything.

The food was not great and personally I did not have any results. I did not lose the 7 lbs in 7 days. I recommend not using this diet unless speaking to a nutritionist first to see what works for your body. This is false advertising.

The food options are just not appealing. They are also overpriced for the quality. Not something I would recommend and I hope to see this diet fade forever.

I didn't like the South Beach Diet because I didn't feel like I had any enjoyment in what I was eating.

I felt like this was a fad diet and I was hungry a lot of the time. I didn't feel like myself while I was on this diet plan.
