    Arthur Agatston, M.D., is a preventive cardiologist and associate professor of medicine at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. In 1995, Dr. Agatston developed the South Beach Diet to help his cardiac and diabetes patients improve their blood chemistries and lose weight. Since then, his book The South Beach Diet and its companion titles have sold more than 22 million copies. Dr. Agatston has published more than 100 scientific articles and abstracts in medical journals, and recently he received the prestigious Alpha Omega Award from New York University Medical Center for outstanding achievement in the medical profession. He lives in Miami Beach with his wife, Sari.


    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 carbs. It teaches you to use the right carbs and the right fats to change your body chemistry to burn fat, help reduce your cholesterol, and help prevent metabolic syndrome (pre-diabetes). As a result, you'll lose weight quickly and safely.

    Dr. Agatston's plan allows you to eat the foods you love-meat and fish, cheese, healthy oils and nuts, vegetables, and the right carbohydrates and sweets. There's no mandatory exercise, and you're never left craving more food. Structured in three simple phases, this may be the easiest diet that you've ever tried.

    PHASE ONE: Say goodbye to bad-for-you "goodies"!
    Your cravings will disappear...and so will eight to thirteen pound.

    PHASE TWO: Your stomach is visibly smaller and favorite foods are back on the menu!
    Your body is burning calories, not storing them!

    PHASE THREE: The stage that lasts the rest of your life-normal foods in normal portions.
    You will keep your ideal weight...and maintain your health and vitality.

    With recipes and meal plans for each phase!

    "The real value of the book is its sound nutritional advice."

      This book not only describes the diet but gives you wonderful recipies and menu plans to follow. I eat so much on this the first 2 weeks I just don't see how I can be losing weight, but I am. Personally, I don't go for a different entre every day, I cycle every 3 days or so because I am the only person at my home on this diet and I didn't want a lot of left overs not being eaten. The beginning means a lot of food preparation, but that is just start-up. It gets easier to prepare meals as you get certain things on hand. If you commit yourself to this diet, it works. I'm stuffed after every meal. I am never hungry which is unusual for me on a diet.

      The book came quickly. I didn't necessarily buy it to lose weight. It was to find what foods one should be eating. I applied the doctor's program to my diet and lost a little weight without trying! So I think that if you want to lose weight this would be the book for you!
