Publisher's Summary

One of the most popular diets of all time, the South Beach Diet involves keeping a healthy balance between fats and good carbs. The diet is based on the glycemic index. It involves cutting down on bad carbs and thus improving the metabolization of the food you eat as well as enhancing your insulin resistance. Both factors combine to help you lose weight in a healthy manner.
But what can you eat, and what is it that you can't eat?
Does it really work? If it does work, how does it work?
What are the different phases of this diet? How do I follow these phases?
Will it help me?
Lots and lots of your questions about the diet will be answered if you just go through this guide from the beginning to the end.

So much information!! :-)

The audiobook Everything You Wanted to Know About the South Beach Diet by J.D. Rockefeller, Narrated by Mike Norgaard is jam-packed with useful information! It is only 23 minutes long, but every second of that 23 minutes is filled to the brim with lists, tips, advice, and guidance to help you successfully implement this new lifestyle. I wanted to learn more about the different diets out there, and I thought I would start with this one. I was excited to see it is on audio, well, because I love audiobooks. It gives the sense of having your own personal coach next to you helping you along your journey. Everything is explained to a tee! J.D. Rockefeller did not miss a beat. Each of the phases of the diet are explained with a given timeframe, list of foods, sample recipes, and even exercise tips! The book is very well organized, allowing no room for confusion. At the end, the main points are again reviewed, just to make sure the listener knows what steps to take next. This diet sounds fairly easy to follow, and being that the book is short, it does not overwhelm, like some books can. I can easily access this information again and again if necessary. Because it is broken up into chapters, I will easily be able to find the answers to any questions I have or review points I may have forgotten as time goes on!

Narrator, Mike Norgaard clearly expresses each of the phases of the South Beach Diet in an easy to understand manner. His voice, volume, and tone are perfect for this book. The way he explains everything makes me feel like he is my guide or coach in this South Beach journey! His confident presentation of the material makes me feel like this is something I definitely can do! His voice is pleasant, firm, kind, and controlled. This isn't the first time I have listened to his work, either. I love how he presents information to listeners, which is why I continue to choose books narrated by him . His consistency throughout is what makes people buy-in to what is being presented. I have to say he is probably my favorite narrator for this genre (all types of non-fiction).

I rate this audiobook 5/5 stars. Although the book is short, if you are serious about wanting to make the South Beach Diet your new lifestyle, it is well worth the credit! I would much rather have an easy to understand 23 minute audiobook that I can easily return to, than read a 300-page book that goes on and onnnnn about the same exact information presented here. It is very well organized and it is filled with useful information. I definitely recommend this book to others, like myself, who are interested in learning about ways to drop a few pounds and lead a more healthy life!

Thank you so much for reading my review. I hope it helped. :-)
