The South Beach Diet by Arthur AgatstonMy husband lost 90 pounds using this book. I bought it for him for Christmas (he wasnt happy about that one!) and started the diet on January 2nd. That was almost six years ago and hes kept the weight off. Any time his clothes start to get a little tight, we go back to Phase 2.
It was especially difficult for him as hes not fond of eggs and many vegetables. Plus, he travels a lot. Airports arent diet friendly so living on the go was tough those first weeks. So, we pre-cooked chicken breasts, lean beef patties and pork chops for him to take along with him to eat in a pinch.
Because of his success, I have to rate this five stars. My husbands older brother died from obesity related issues at only 37 years of age, so I also have to thank the author for giving us my husbands life back.

The South Beach Diet Review
Let me back up a bit: Looking for a challenge, I had started a job that promised to put all my experience to the test. A ton of meetings are held at my office, with bagels, sandwiches, and pastries often left over. Before starting this job, I'd followed a paleo eating plan for a couple of years and had managed to cut most refined carbs out of my diet. When there were no sweet treats up for grabs, I began running out to buy myself a huge peanut butter cookie or a pita sandwich. And things just spiraled out of control. Eventually, I become a card-carrying member of the stretch-pants squad, never wearing pants with a button unless absolutely necessary.
They promise to take the guesswork out of dieting by delivering healthy, prepared, pre-portioned meals to your door each month. Like Nutrisystem , its convenience makes it a favorite of busy people. So, does the South Beach Diet really work? What is the South Beach Diet? He originally developed the 3-phase program to improve the insulin levels in his patients, but noticed that they also lost weight on the plan. Instead, the diet is about learning to eat the right carbs and healthy fats.
Created by cardiologist Arthur Agatston in , the South Beach Diet began is a best-selling book and has since expanded into a commercial weight-loss program. The goal of this plan is to boost your metabolism so that it burns fat more efficiently for lasting weight loss. Rather than branding itself as a ticket to fast fat burning, the South Beach Diet emphasizes sustained weight loss that produces results you can maintain for the long term. For your first seven days on the plan, you will focus on lean protein and healthy fats while avoiding fruit, starches, most carbohydrates, sugar, and alcohol. This is the hardest stage for many people, but it serves as the foundation for losing weight for the rest of the time.
