For about three and a half weeks, I've been following the South Beach Diet. Initial results were great. I lost 11 pounds in the first 2 weeks. At this point, I began to reintroduce good carbs back into my diet, but my eating habits were still very healthy. The third week showed absolutely no loss. I was curious this morning and, to my undermost disgust, I found that I'd gained two pounds in the last couple of days. So, that makes absolutely no weight loss in the past nine days, but a gain of two pounds. I eat nothing but lean proteins like chicken, fish and steak, vegetables, and limit fats, especially saturated ones. The carbs I eat are whole grain, in the form of whole wheat pasta, whole wheat bread, or brown rice. I have only cheated a couple of times during the three weeks and they were very much controlled cheats, rather than a binge. Also, I do 20 minutes of intense interval cardio work every day.
