Product Description

The all-science, deliciously heart-healthy diet that quickly sheds inches from your waistline. When Dr. Agatston set out to develop a palatable, safe diet to insure the long-term health of his chronically overweight heart patients, he also caused an overnight sensation among South Beach's body conscious beachgoers. Why? With Dr. Agatston's plan, you shed pounds fast-right from the waistline and belly. His scientifically proven program offers immediate results, helping dieters shed 10, 20, 30 pounds, while radically changing their blood chemistry, reversing diabetes and lowering high cholesterol. The diet works in 3 stages to change your metabolism with a healthy assortment of meat, fish, cheese, healthy oils and nuts, vegetables, and even small amounts of carbohydrates and sweets. All this without the dangerous long-term effects of other severely restrictive diets, which helped earn The South Beach Diet the support of the American Heart Association, which has warned against other popular diets.

Publisher's 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 regiments 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 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 to 13 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.
