South Beach Diet

While some diets eliminate carbohydrates altogether, the South Beach Diet does neither. The South Beach Diet seeks to simply replace "bad" carbs and fats with ones that are "good" for you.

I'm allergic to so many healthy food items that it makes it hard to go on a diet. I'm allergic to eggs - what can you substitute eggs with?

Although eggs are a healthy protein source, there are many substitutes that are just as beneficial. Tofu scrambles are a wonderful breakfast alternative, and there are plenty of vegan versions of all your favorite baked goods that omit eggs or use an egg replacer instead! Work with a qualified nutritionist to incorporate these substitutions into your diet.

First of all, do not follow any diet. Eggs are usually contained in most packaged foods, so if you simply adopt a nutrition program based on whole-food cooking, you will not have that problem with most of your meals. The next step would be to hire a nutritionist to help you address the root cause of your allergies. One of my clients was on 3 medications for over 17 years, but now, after 3 months, not only is she not taking medications anymore but her allergies are slowly diminishing. Consult with a professional--that is the best advice I can give you. We are truly what we eat and the quality of the foods we eat.
