Description

With the publication of The South Beach Diet, renowned Miami cardiologist Dr. Arthur Agatston set out to change the way America eats. Now he has an even more ambitious goal: to change the way America lives by helping Americans become fitter as well as thinner and healthier . . . for life. 

In the all-new The South Beach Diet Supercharged, Dr. Agatston shows you how to rev up your metabolism and lose weight faster while following the proven healthy eating principles of the original diet: choose good carbs, good fats, lean protein, and low-fat dairy. 

Collaborating with Dr. Joseph Signorile, a professor of exercise physiology at the University of Miami, Dr. Agatston presents a cutting-edge, three-phase workout that perfectly complements the three phases of the diet itself. Based on the latest exercise science, this ease-into-it fitness program combines low- and high-intensity interval exercise (with a focus on walking) and functional core body-toning exercises. The result: You'll look fitter and you'll burn more fat and calories all day—even at rest. Also included is the latest nutritional research on how specific foods high in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and a host of phytonutrients help keep you healthy; new and expanded lists of Foods to Enjoy; taste-tempting Meal Plans for phases 1 and 2; and dozens of easy-to-prepare new recipes, including Eggs Frijoles, Chock-Full-of-Veggies Chili, Roasted Tomato Soup, Homestyle Turkey Meatloaf, and South Beach Diet Tiramisu. 

In every chapter you'll find inspiring success stories from real-life South Beach dieters and plenty of effective weight loss tips. And as an added bonus, Dr. Agatston answers the questions you've most often asked him about the diet since the original book was published.

    I have lost about 30lbs in 75 days - Even though it was the holidays when I started. Lost 3 lbs over the weekend in New Orleans! Feel better and I am much more alert.

    This book is a great resource for the right foods to be eating. It changes diet from a four letter word to a way of life.

    I read the original South Beach book and followed the diet a few years ago. When I decided to go back to Phase One a little while ago, I decided to see if the book was available for iBooks. I was pleased to see that the new version is available. Throughout the book, there are many references to other places in the book for additional information. The problem is that they all reference page numbers in the printed copy which is not at all helpful for the iBook version. The Index references page number, and if you touch one of the references, you're taken to the correct spot in the iBook. It would be extremely helpful if all of the other references for additional information worked like the references in the Index. As it is, they're pretty useless.
