Well..they gave me a list of food , basically low carb diet.
But i just made my modifications. For example, i dont use eggs...i only use whites or egg beater. and i dont give up my bread..i used to eat ligh weath bread three o four times a week.
But during my lunch and dinner my carb counts are low!
I used to eat salad with chicken for lunch I make a chicken soup (just with breast) and just the broth.
Basically , my diet consist in salad, chicken,egg whites and turkey breast(Oven rosted)
I insist..if need more help..call me!
PD: Sorry for ma aweful english!!!!
I think it great if you are losing your weight with south hampton health services. Years ago I went their after my pregnancy. It was great. I recently called them to see if they would work with someone out of state and they said no. Of course I was heartbroken because this was the best diet ever for me. I am in need of losing weight and I am searching for a program like it but cant find the diet if anyone could send me a copy of the diet they use I would greatly apprecaite it. I think my posts are going through now. I wonder where the others went. If I lived back in virginia I would not think twice about going their.
I am back on I guess I was having trouble with my login. Had to get that straight. Anyways, I have found a place. You pick your own diet. Don't know how that will work. I don't know if anyone was writing me or answering me about the south hampton diet. If you don't want to send me a copy that is fine. It's just a food list. I thought we were here to support each other.I am going away for a few days need a break from Tennessee. Do you know someone knocked down two statues of Mary the mother of Jesus at a Catholic church up here. What is the world coming to. To everyone on the South Hampton Diet I wish you well. I sure know when you reach your goal it's a great feeling.
i am interested in losing at least 50 pounds. i have heard a lot about south hampton health services. is this the place where i ask a question about them or is this a discussion board only? My question is about the B12 shots. after having taken them and then achieving a weight loss goal, when they are stopped will your metabolism slow down making it harder to maintain a target weight? i would hate to lose my weight only to have it return and i dont want to be hemmed into a B12 injection forever. Also, what is the HCG all about? I appreciate any help and information anyone can give me. I think u can tell i have not been very successful in any permanent weight loss and it is very scary to me. thenk you.
I started b-12 shots on Tuesday 10/27/09, and started eating the foods on the diet list on 10/28/09 given to me by the South Hampton Health Services in Hampton.. Well I weighed in today, over 18 pounds GONE!
It wasn't difficult, I was a little hungry so hopefully the phentermine will suppress my appetite. Once I get to 350, I will incorporate walikng, because my knees hurt a bit, so I can't wait to see 350lbs...
10/27/09: Start weight: 379
11/06/09: 361, I was prescribed today phentermine 30 mg and some water pill.....I'll pick up the prescriptions in the morning.
This program helps you lose, but there has to be a change in the way WE view food. I have played the yo yo game forever. I am at a point where I have to lose the weight because of the pain in my knees. I am appreciating the foods I'm eating. I never thought I would like cottage cheese and now along with my fruit cocktail, it has become my preferred breakfast... All Diets do work to get the weight off, but it is our behaviors about food is ultimately what will keep the weight off....
"Eat to live and not live to eat!"
Good luck everybody on incorporating Healthier Eating.....And Exercise!
There is an office at
2115 Executive Drive
