Notes about this book

  • rathgrith on March 04, 2010

    I like to make at least a couple SBD dinners a week. They are tasty and healthy. I use this, the Taste of Summer, and Quick and Easy books. My husband once complained (when I was actively following SBD) that he didn't want to have to eat "diet food," but he never noticed when I made recipes from these books! Now I like to keep them in rotation just to keep the calories and carbs down throughout the week.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Artichoke salad with olives

    • debiliem on January 31, 2015

      Phase 1 of the diet. Mediterranean dish. I used a light version of mayonnaise and artichoke hearts in olive oil. I omitted adding the extra tablespoons of olive oil to the mayonnaise dressing the second time I made it, I found it added additional unnecessary calories and the mayonnaise sort of separated with the oil. I used ready to use roasted red peppers from a jar. Serve with white fish.

Publishers Text

Since it was published in April 2002, The South Beach Diet has gone back to press 23 times with more than 7.7 million copies in print. The trade paperback South Beach Diet Good Fats/Good Carbs Guide has 3 million copies in print.

A key factor in the diet's success is the great-tasting, well-balanced meals Dr. Agatston promotes. In fact, requests for more recipes began pouring in as soon as the book hit the shelves! The South Beach Diet Cookbook fills that need by offering more than 200 recipes that adhere to the diet's nutritional principles without compromising on taste.

Beginning with a brief overview of the science-based eating philosophy and why it produces such dramatic results--up to 13 pounds in the first two weeks--the book also includes success stories, troubleshooting tips, and frequently asked questions. The fabulous recipes, from Whole Grain Pancakes with Berry Cream Syrup to Filet Mignon with Tomatoes and Rosemary to Chocolate-Hazelnut Flourless Cake, ensure that this cookbook will appeal to any one who wants to eat more healthfully (and who doesn't). And for every dish there is an indicator as to which phase of the diet corresponds, so followers can choose appropriate foods.

Also included are new recipes contributed by prominent South Beach chefs and readers themselves. Illustrated throughout with color photography, The South Beach Diet Cookbook will satisfy the needs of thousands who are already on the plan and draw in thousands of new followers as well.
