Publisher's Summary

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 lose that stubborn belly fat first!
Dr. Agatston's diet has produced consistently dramatic results (8 to 13 pounds lost in the first two weeks!) and has become a media sensation in South Florida. Now you, too, can join the ranks of the fit and fabulous with The South Beach Diet.

SBD easy , controls weight, gives energy

The South Beach Diet rules are easy to follow. After years of yo-yo weight struggle, learning its principles has made it easy for me to control my weight. With more energy on the diet due to the types of food and without feelings of hunger (with the frequent, but healthy snacking) I am eating less and feeling more satified than when I ate more. Even with young children and an unpredictable schedule this is a very doable and healthy approach to eating that I depend on daily for well-being and weight control.

Good Overview Of Plan

Even though this selection is abridged, I think it did a good job of explaining what the South Beach Diet is about. (Eating the right carbs) This book didn't really teach me anything new that I haven't already learned from other low-carb plans. But I did find it interesting and I discovered a few new recipe ideas for eating low-carb.
