The Diet Everyone's Talking About

"I have tried every diet--including Weight Watchers, The Zone, Atkins, Jenny Craig--and have had a difficult time staying on those programs. The South Beach Diet is easy, simple, and delicious. If you want live to be 103 and be shot by your lover's spouse instead of dying of heart disease or diabetes, I suggest you try it!"--Linda Richman, author of I'd Rather Laugh

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 of meat, poultry, and fish. You'll also eat eggs, cheese, nuts, and vegetables. Snacks are required. You'll learn to avoid the bad carbs, like white flour, white sugar, and baked potatoes. Best of all, you'll eat until you're no longer hungry.

Dr. Agatston's diet produced such consistently dramatic results (8 to 13 pounds lost in the first 2 weeks!) that it became a media sensation in South Florida. Now you, too, can join the ranks of the fit and fabulous with The South Beach Diet.

Review:

"Despite the glitzy title, this is one of the more appealing diet books among the new 'anti-carb' programs....[T]he enthusiasm of the conversational tone and the inviting manner make the book more appealing than many other diet tomes." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Dr. Agatston is a noted cardiologist who's made many contributions, but The South Beach Diet may be his best. Importantly, this is not 'another diet book.' This is a book about health and well-being. Dr. Agatston does an outstanding job of explaining the importance of the types of food we eat and its impact on preventing illnesses, such as coronary heart disease and diabetes. Not only will you feel better if you follow his diet, but you will look and live better." Randolph P. Martin, M.D., director of noninvasive cardiology at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta

Synopsis:

When Dr. Agatston set out to develop a palatable, safe diet to ensure the long-term health of his chronically overweight heart patients, he also caused an overnight sensation among South Beach's body-conscious beachgoers. Why? With Dr. Agatston's plan, you shed pounds fast — right from the waistline and belly. His scientifically proven program offers immediate results, helping dieters shed 10, 20, 30 pounds while radically changing their blood chemistry, reversing diabetes, and lowering high cholesterol. The diet works in three stages to change your metabolism and then maintain it, with a healthy assortment of meat and fish, cheese, healthy oils and nuts, vegetables, and even small amounts of carbohydrates and sweets. And it does all this without the dangerous long-term effects of the Zone, Atkins, or other severely restrictive diets, which is why The South Beach Diet earned the support of the American Heart Association, which has warned against many other popular diets. The diet will show you how to:
  • Shed pounds — without breaking a sweat (no mandatory exercise)
  • Banish frustrating cravings in 2 weeks
  • Forget willpower — diet relies exclusively on the physiology of appetite and metabolism

When renowned cardiologist Arthur Agatston, M.D., set out to develop a safe diet for his chronically overweight heart patients, he didn't expect to become a media star in South Florida. But news of his patients' dramatic successes soon spread far beyond the confines of his practice. Strangers started calling to ask for a copy of the diet, and local news began featuring stories of its popularity. Soon, the South Beach Diet was a bona fide craze in Miami.

And no wonder. South Beach dieters lose 8 to 13 pounds in the first 2 weeks without feeling hungry. Dr. Agatston's plan allows you to eat the foods you love--meat and fish, cheese, healthy oils and nuts, vegetables, and the right carbohydrates and sweets. There's no mandatory exercise, and best of all, you'll lose that stubborn belly fat first.
