Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Five years ago, 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.

Five years ago, 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.

Rated 3.9 out of 5★ by 11reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Good Diet Book The South Beach Diet is a very easy to follow guideline to healthy eating. The book guides you through each step. It is very helpful if you read the entire book before beginning the diet. This will help to understand why you must do as it says and also keeps you motivated to what is to come. The exercise portion offered some information which is more current and actually corrected my thinking on the way to exercise. 08/22/2010
Rated 5 out of 5★ by revised south beach diet I found this book very helpful and encouraging. Hub and I have been following the recommendations in the book. We are both diabetic and our doctor recommended we follow the eating plans as recommended in the book. It seems we are eating all day, about every 2 1/2 to 3 hours. This would be hard to follow for a person working full time I would think. We have the honor of being retired so have time to spend most of the day in the kitchen. If not cooking I am doing prep work. I do my best to multitask the food entries. This diet is set up similar to Atkins with little to no sugar, however the SB diet also recommends low to no fat. Takes a lot of label reading when shopping. We live in a small town and some of the recommended food items are not available, which means I substitute and hope I am doing it right. Phase 1 is no fruit which I do miss, love cold fruit in this heat but I can go without for 2 weeks.Breaking meals down from 3 mains to 5 smaller versions, plus a sugar free dessert will help our sugar level stabalized and the concept is recommended for diabetics.The only drawback I have fond is that there is no recommended portion size in a lot of the recipes. For example it will say cook salmon with enough left over for the next day lunch. Does that mean we each get 2 oz, or 10 oz, no idea so I guess on that sort of thing. Another example is scrambled eggs and turkey bacon for breakfast but no idea how much of each. We are slowly loosing weight so something is working. 08/19/2011
