The South Beach Diet Author:Arthur Agatston 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. — ... more »So Dr. Agatston developed his own. The South Beach Diet isn't complicated, and it doesn't require that you go hungry.

This book was well written & had a lot of great pointers. Also has some good recipes. A must read for anyone trying to improve their lifestyle and incorporate a better diet & way of living that fits into everyday normal life with "normal" eating.
This is a great recipe book. I have tried several of them and have enjoyed it. One in particular is the spinach mini quiches. They are made in muffin tins-super easy to make and a delicious, on the run breakfast. The book is full of good ideas and really fresh recipes. Great summer food.
A lengthy explanation of the South Beach Diet along with a lot of "real life" stories and a few recipes. The diet has worked amazingly well for my husband and sister in law. Less so for myself, frankly my own eating habits are not far off from his recommendations so weight loss is slow and minimal. But Sister in law lost 60 lbs. in about 9 months and husband 15-20 lbs. in just a month.
