This is a nice handy quick reference book to help you with the South Beach Diet. A lot of good information on what foods you can eat at home and especially out to dinner.

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.

Be careful if you're a diabetic. I found that a mostly protein diet for the first 2 weeks was not healthy and blacked out once for lack of carbs. There are GOOD carbs out there and this diet WILL incorporate them eventually. If you're a diabetic, add a small amount of good carbs to this diet and you'll do OK.

I lost weight. My son lost over 100 pounds in a few months and qualified for the Army enlistment weight requirements for low body fat and weight. It's a lot of discipline and can be costly because of all the fresh veggies and fresh fish that they ask you to prepare. I truly didn't care for the low-fat mayo because it tasted too sweet but you can substitute with other things like mustard or spices.

Seems more balanced than the Atkins diet and enjoyed the tasty recipes and snacks. Worthwhile reading on health and nutrition.

Doesn't require that you starve yourself. You can still eat normal size helpings of meat, poultry and fish. Snacks are required. Includes meal plans.
