Description

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, as you lose weight, you’ll lose that stubborn belly fat first

Dr. Agatston’s diet has produced consistently dramatic results (8 to13 pounds lost in the first 2 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.

    So I've struggled with my weight my entire life. Finally, at 36 I decided I had enough. So I began exercising like a mad man and saw minimal weight loss. It was then that I started South Beach Diet. Eight months later & 80 pounds lighter, I'm in the best shape I've ever been and this book and my exercise program are the reason for it. This books helps you to understand the relationship between simple carbohydrates and blood sugar and how the processed foods we eat are slowly killing us. Cut the processed foods, switch to whole grains, high fiber and you positively will lose weight. It isn't exaggerating by saying this book changed my life; it will change yours too.
