South Beach Diet?

Has anyone with a bmi of over 35 been on the south beach diet and has it worked? and also lol did you stay on phase 1 for longer than 2 weeks. I read that you can stay on it for up to 2months if your obese or a bmi of over 35... someone please help i need to do something thats actually going to work!

I personally don't believe in diets but in lifestyle choice and way of eating that will last for the long-term. I have friends who did the South Beach Diet and once they went off of it gained all the weight back and then some. For me, it's about eating 4-5 smaller meals (portion control) throughout the day made up of protein, veggies, and fruits.
