The South Beach Diet: The Delicious, Doctor-Designed, Foolproof Plan for Fast and Healthy Weight Loss

  • Great product!

For years, cardiologist Arthur Agatston, M.D., urged his patients to lose weight for the sake of their hearts, but every diet was too hard to follow or its restrictions were too harsh. Some were downright dangerous. Nobody seemed to be able to stick with low-fat regimens for any length of time. And a diet is useless if you can’t stick with it.
So Dr. Agatston developed his own. The South Beach Diet isn’t complicated, and it doesn’t require that you go hungry. You’ll enjoy normal-size helpings

    Easiest and most satisfying diet ever, July 9, 2003
    By A Customer
    I’m 52 and have had a slight to moderate weight problem my entire life (about 25 lbs.) Have been on many diets and always lost weight but never could make it a “lifestyle change”. This is so simple – I think some those who have given negative reviews are reading more into it and making it more complicated than it is. Who cares if it is a little like the Atkins diet in the first couple of weeks – at least I don’t have to do any carb calculations!! I’ve been on it for 5 weeks, have lost 12 pounds and have lost my usual cravings for candy, cookies, and chocolate. I am able to totally ignore the Krispy Kreme donuts in the employee lounge. You don’t have to eat the menu plan – those are just suggestions for people who don’t have any creativity when it comes to cooking. Just eat the things on the allowed list and don’t eat foods on the “may not eat” list and make sure you eat your snacks and eat enough at mealtime to satisfy you. Yes – once in a while I feel hungry because I’ve been too busy to eat what I should – so I just catch up by eating allowed foods. Up until now I’ve always been a “carboholic” and it’s really an odd feeling to not need that. I find the Atkins plan too complicated. I have found that most people doing the Atkins plan don’t really follow the “rules” but modify it to suit their needs, and I’ve never met anyone who has stayed on it permanently – so, to each his own!

    It’s A Keeper for Lifetime Eating, April 17, 2003
    By A Customer
    This review is from: The South Beach Diet CD (Audio CD)
    I started The South Beach Diet with Phase Two and I continue to lose weight steadily. This diet has balanced my cravings for foods high in sugar. I no longer obsess over food or when I can eat again. The South Beach Diet is not based on fads. It is not about eating a diet of fatty meat products, drinking glass after glass of water, eating expensive prepared foods, preparing time consuming recipes, counting calories or counting points. It is about eating familiar, unprocessed foods that are accessible in all grocery stores and all restaurants. Dr. Agatston has researched and developed a diet that is simple and logical. That’s why it works.

    South Beach Diet Updates
    The South Beach Diet (SBD) continues to evolve as new nutritional studies and information come out. Recently, the results of new studies have shown that some of the “foods to avoid” may not be as bad for us as the original studies on glycemic index demonstrated. There are also some new, exciting studies about the role calcium plays in weight loss. The end result is that you can continue to enjoy all of the foods recommended for the SBD-as well as adding back in a few of your favorites! Here are the major changes:
    Milk:
    Old Version:
    Avoid all dairy in Phase 1, except for less than 2 tablespoons fat-free = and =, nonfat milk, 1 percent milk, or soy milk allowed with coffee.
    New Version:
    Phase 1:
    Now includes low-fat milk (fat-free and 1 percent), soy milk, and yogurt (low-fat or fat-free plain or vanilla light/lite only) on the Phase 1 “foods to enjoy” list.
    Phase 2:
    May add light/lite fruited yogurt as a “food to enjoy” in Phase 2. Note: Since the SBD is still low in saturated fat, high-fat whole milk products will remain on the “foods to avoid” lists for all Phases.
    Tomatoes:
    Old Version:
    Limited to one whole tomato or 10 cherry tomatoes per meal in all Phases.
    New Version:
    Not limited in any Phase.
    Onions:
    Old Version:
    Limited to = per day in all Phases.
    New Version:
    Not limited in any Phase.
    Carrots:
    Old Version:
    Avoid carrots in Phase 1 and 2; allowed in moderation in Phase 3.
    New Version:
    Allowed, starting in Phase 2.
