The South Beach Diet book by Arthur
Cardiologist Dr Arthur Agatston
originally tailored this diet for his patients to improve the state
of their hearts, and of course their general health as well. But
almost by mistake, they began to lose weight too, growing in popularity
as it did so.
Developed with the help of a professional nutritionist, Dr Agatston's
diet provides easy-to-follow eating plans and recipes to keep you
firmly on track.
The recipes are simple to prepare and aim to lose weight from the
waist first. The results and health benefits are immediate and long-term
and positive results can start to show within just two weeks.
There is no counting of calories, no fighting with exercises and
no banned foods.
The verdict is in: those simple carbohydrates
we've been living on are killing us. For good health, we've got
to get our blood sugar under control and stop the incessant cravings.
Or so says Dr Arthur Agatston, author of The South Beach Diet.
The first half of the book details the science behind the diet.
Most of the explanations revolve around why things you thought were
healthy--orange juice, wholemeal bread, carrots--are actually evil.
To avoid blood sugar surges, Agatston created a modified carbohydrate
plan, recommending plenty of high-fibre food, lean protein and healthy
fat and reducing bread, rice, pasta and fruit...
The last half of the book covers his three-stage plan; daily diets
are mixed with recipes, some of which are from South Beach restaurant
chefs. The most restrictive period lasts just two weeks, enough
time to stabilise your urges and lose a few pounds; stage two adds
fruits and a handful of other carbs, while stage three is meant
to last the remainder of your life, with occasional lapses for white
bread or birthday cake.
