Low Glycemic Diet – Day 7 – South Beach diet

I kind of fell off the phase 1 wagon today. It wasn’t major as I ate something – a 140 calorie South Beach protein bar — that is for phase 2 and 3 only. It could’ve been much worse so I’m not going to beat myself up. I also ate: Breakfast – string cheese stick […]
