Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Balsamic vinaigrette

    • FoodSleuth on January 18, 2015

      Makes green salads tastes fresh and inviting for dieters.

  • Chicken en papillote

    • spharo00 on April 04, 2012

      The chicken and vegetables inside the parchment were very moist and flavorful. The tarragon and orange zest really put it over the top. I served this with a salad and boiled red potatoes.

  • Cracked pepper steak

    • MWFhome on May 24, 2014

      A great, tasty way to enjoy steak; can be cooked on a grill.

  • Pan-roasted steak and onions

    • spharo00 on January 27, 2013

      I made the mistake of buying the wrong cut of meat for this recipe and so it was a bit too tough by the time I finished cooking it. The onion mixture was delicious served over the top of the steak. I actually prefer this dish made with chicken. I've done that several times and it is always so good.

Publishers Text

When Dr. Agatston set out to develop a palatable, safe diet to ensure the long-term health of his chronically overweight heart patients, he also caused an overnight sensation among South Beach's body-conscious beachgoers. Why With Dr. Agatston's plan, you shed pounds fast--right from the waistline and belly. His scientifically proven program offers immediate results, helping dieters shed 10, 20, 30 pounds while radically changing their blood chemistry, reversing diabetes, and lowering high cholesterol.

The diet works in three stages to change your metabolism and then maintain it with a healthy assortment of meat and fish, cheese, healthy oils and nuts, vegetables, and even small amounts of carbohydrates and sweets. And it does all this without the dangerous long-term effects of the Zone, Atkins, or other severely restrictive diets, which is why The South Beach Diet has earned the support of the American Heart Association, which has warned against many other popular diets.
