Overview

In the first phase of the South Beach diet, which lasts two weeks, you eat normal-sized helpings of lean meats, such as chicken, turkey, fish, and shellfish. Vegetables are also allowed, as are nuts, cheese, and eggs. A salad with real olive oil dressing is fine. Coffee and tea are OK, and lots and lots of water is required.

Overview

In the first phase of the South Beach diet, which lasts two weeks, you eat normal-sized helpings of lean meats, such as chicken, turkey, fish, and shellfish. Vegetables are also allowed, as are nuts, cheese, and eggs. A salad with real olive oil dressing is fine. Coffee and tea are OK, and lots and lots of water is required.

The second phase is similar to the first phase, but you'll start to reintroduce some of the banned foods. You can start eating high-fiber carbohydrates, such as whole-grain breads, which raise your insulin levels in a much milder way that do simple, starchy carbs.

"We don't want prolonged, severe weight loss," says Agatston. "You stay on the second phase only until you reach your goal weight."

The Third phase is the maintenance phase: how you'll eat for the rest of your life. It's the most liberal stage. You can continue to eat snacks if you need them, but most people find that they are satisfied without them.

    Ripoff

    This isn't an official South Beach diet book. The author barely speaks English and the sentences don't make sense.

    Total scam! Not the real South Beach book!

    This type of pirated ripoff is or should be illegal. It appears to be a badly scanned or transcribed version of the real book designed to fool people and rob them of their money. I can't believe the Nook store allows this kind of thing.

    South beach diet

    I just purchased this book, and I am disapointed with the quality of the sample meal plans.
    The pages 17 to 18 overlap, same for pages 24 to 26 and are hard to read.
    There seems to be page flow missing from page 28 to 29.
    Page 28 the meal plan diagram is cut in half.
    Disapointed

    Very disappointed

    I have the original book. I thought that's what I was getting. Instead, it is a very consolidated version. Minimal amount of pages and very little information.

    Disappointed,

    I had an earlier edition of this in hardback. There was a lot more to the book that what is in this. I will try to use it but not real optimistic.

    It works!

    So far, after one week, my husband's belly and my tummy are disappearing! Whatever this diet does, it does it great. Hoping to see progress and maintenance of the shape we are in.
