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.

Great "diet" program. No points counting, no weighing/measuring. First phase can be hard because you are eliminating sugars and carbs, but after the first few days hunger abates. My husband's cardiologist recommended this program and I can see that this can be an easy lifestyle change to a new way of eating. Makes you look on labels for sugar content - and there are some surprises out there! First two weeks, we both lost 9 pounds with no hunger pangs. Entering Phase 2, you re-introduce fruits, juices, and some carbs. But you have to say goodbye to white rice and potatoes forever. Book has an exercise plan as well; guess that's the supercharged part. If you have tried and failed at other diets, give this a shot. Book has lists of good/bad foods for all phases, plus suggested menus and some great recipes that are in my permanent repertoire now.
This is a great book. It really gets down to business and adds to the first book I already had. South Beach has one of the best, easiest to follow, programs, and I have tried MANY. This has great ideas to help you avoid being too hungry. LOVE IT!
