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.
No carbs for two weeks, then start adding things back in slowly.
This book is well researched, easy to read, and makes good sense to me. I have a good, standard understanding of nutrition and how the human body works as a machine. Calories as fuel, if not used then they are stored. This book reiterates that principle and shows you how the KIND of calories matters, especially when trying to trim/slim and make your machine work more efficiently.
I have been adhering to the SBD principles for about 6 weeks now and have lost approx 18-20lbs. The plan and course of action works. I keep it by my bed for "reminder" reading from time to time.
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.
While not an avid Southbeach follower, this book has some good recipes that are healthy and low in carbs. It particularly has some great main dish salad recipes (the Dilled Shrimp Salad is a favorite) and just makes you think about cooking in a more healthy way.
I love this book.. in fact I bought one for both of my sister also. The recipies were delicious and fun to make.. We are a pasta family and we lost weight easily following this diet.. even my husband and son enjoyed the meals..Great book for anyone who needs that extra push when it comes to dieting..
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.
Developed by noted Miami cardiologist Dr. Arthur Agatston for his patients, THE SOUTH BEACH DIET became a national phenomenon, because it works. It's not low-fat. It's not low-carb. This clinically proven, healthy plan to lose weight teaches you how to eat the right carbs and the rights fats. In addition, the South Beach Diet will help reduce your cholesterol as well as help prevent metabolic syndrome (pre-diabetes). As a result, you'll lose weight safely and keep it off.
This book is fantastic. Between the two of us, my husband and I have lost over 100 lbs. I love to cook, and the recipes are full of fresh flavors, and are easy to make. You will soon learn to adapt your own recipes to be South Beach friendly...and best of all...you get to eat a lot of food...all day long.
