I can't speak for the South Beach diet, but the Atkins diet does not prohibit fresh fruits or veggies. Heck, I'm on Atkins, and am living on a 50% salad diet (mind you, salad with MEAT. . . .). We just keep away from high-sugar/high-starch beyond a certain point, depending on where you are in the diet (induction, continuing loss, maintenance)

Well, I can speak for the South Beach one. I've never eaten so many veggies in my life. Fruit gets added back in after 14 days. Unfortunately most of the stuff that's out now for low carb diets don't work for the South Beach Diet. It's hard to wrap my brain around the difference between low carb and good carb. And turkey bacon, 2 slices, is about all they mention on the SB plan. I know I'll do my part with Florida oranges. I'll just be eating them whole.
