This is NG: Eat foods that are nutrient dense (like meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese, low starch vegatables and water) avoid foods that are not nutrient dense (like starches and sugars, including fruit) nutrient dense foods will increase your basal metabolic rate. On the other hand, starches and sugars impair thyroid metabolism via affects on your liver (which helps activate thyroid hormone).

First and foremost: Please believe me, there are no shortcuts. Consult with your doctor, have an examination and make sure you are healthy enough to exercise. Concentrate on one goal at a time. First- breakfast every day, no excuses. Next, a bit of walking every day, even if it's just 5-10 mins. Increase every week or two by 5-10 mins. Then, cut down on the bedtime goodies, especially sweets and carbs. On your way!

Can you tell me how much weight typically will you lose daily on the south beach diet?

It depends : A lot of weight loss depends on your weight age and gender as well as the type of diet you're following. On the South Beach Diet which is a hypoglycemic ketogenic diet for most part the typical weight loss is about 2 to 3 pounds a week. However if you are heavy, and exercising while dieting i've seen as much as 5 to 10 pounds a week for the first few weeks as you lose weight the weight-loss slows down.
