RE: Plumeria and stuff--Andrea--South Beach Diet

Isn't the South Beach Diet basically a reasonable low carb diet?  Maybe that
is where that comes in since some folk (especially my mother) think that if
you don't eat sugar, you can eat anything you want.  However, carbs do count
as they too turn into sugars in the body, though at a somewhat slower rate.

rather confused by the diet issue too!
