I started the South Beach Diet 1 week ago and my husband's birthday was last night. He asked for cupcakes, so I baked pineapple cupcakes. I ate 5. One, then the second one a little later, third a little later until 5 were eaten by me. What would you call this emotional eating or what. I don't know what my problem is. It seems when it comes to special events I cave. Any suggestions would be truly appreciated.

    I followed the South Beach Diet regimen and lost the same 58 pounds three different times...the last time, I realized that the cravings were *enormous* for sweets and pasta and rice and bread...I can remember leaving Whole Foods eating a whole French baguette all by myself. It's sort of disgusting in retrospect.

    Desperate, fat and horribly unhappy, I picked up THE BIGGEST LOSER book and followed it [basically, you take your weight and multiply it by seven to get the amount of calories you need to ingest in order for quick weight loss]. I gradually lost almost thirty pounds and I'm on my way to losing another thirty.

    You can't deprive can't think of this as a diet, it has to be a life change, where you consume a healthy balanced diet with proteins and carbs and you exercise regularly. If you feel deprived, you're going to nosh on pineapple cupcakes like a madwoman, beat yourself and feel guilty, then have to start all over again...

    Remember balance.... portion control...exercise... and how badly do you want to do this?

    Here's wishing you the best of luck!

    Try giving them to the neighbors. =) or else put them in the freezer where it takes more work to thaw it out to eat it. (I know that when I get going like that I want something quick and easy, if I have to work for it 9 times out of 10 I'll just leave it alone)
