Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Cardiologist Agatston (The South Beach Diet) follows up his blockbuster book on weight-loss with this volume of more than 200 recipes, a number of which are culled from the kitchens of chefs in Miami Beach and other cities. Each recipe is designated as Phase 1, 2 or 3 to help readers discern the segment of the diet for which they are appropriate. Carbohydrates are off-limits during Phase 1, but "good carbs" (like whole grains) are gradually reintroduced in Phase 2. Phase 3 segues into a less restrictive but still healthy eating regimen. Among the Phase 1 recipes are the simple Reuben Wrap (which calls for cabbage leaves instead of bread; the author notes readers "will have to have a `rye' sense of humor for this"), as well as more complex main dishes such as Coconut Chicken and Sage and Rosemary Pork. Phase 2 and 3 eaters will find delicious options such as Sesame Baked Chicken, Crab Royale and Couscous Salad. Noting that a variety of foods and recipes combats the repetition and boredom that are many dieters' downfall, Agatston presents a wide array of choices, with plenty of enticing fish and vegetarian dishes. He also includes breakfasts, snacks and desserts, as well as ideas for home entertaining "South Beach-style" with a focus on fresh veggies, fat-free dips, shrimp and nuts for appetizers, and main dishes of grilled tuna or flank steak. Agatston leaves no stone unturned, even providing shopping lists and recipes for homemade condiments that forgo sugars. Agent, Richard Pine. (Apr. 13) Forecast: Although it may seem like everyone and their mother is on the Atkins diet, South Beach is also popular. The diet book sold more than five million copies, and many of those readers will want this follow-up. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Excellent Cookbook

    I bought this cookbook when I started the South Beach Diet and was anticipating a very restricted diet. I found this cookbook to be very helpful even in the first phase of the diet and found more recipes I wanted to make than in any other cookbook I have (I collect cookbooks). Even on the first phase of the diet I did not feel like I was on a diet. I recommend this cookbook to anyone, even if you are not on a diet. This is one of my favorites.

    Thanks South Beach!

    It was time to get healthy. My husband and I have both lost over 20 pounds using South Beach recipes and strategies. It was easy and delicious! We still come back to this SB cookbook time and time again. Mostly these recipes are a bit of work, but well worth it. Even our daughter has vied for the leftovers and she's not even on the diet! Don't miss Chicken with Lime Dressing, Big Easy Shrimp, Oven-Fried Chicken with Almonds and South Beach Tomato Sauce (but I use half the amount of Italian tomatoes) - our favorites! My only problem is the pages are falling out of this well-used cookbook.

    Good Book

    Been on the diet now for three weeks and have lost 14 pounds. Not as profound as some of the other reviewers, but it is a start. The key to a diet is knowing when to occasionally splurge on a good meal. If you want to follow this advice, I suggest the title below.

    Great addition to the South Beach Diet

    My husband bought this for me as a Mother's Day gift, and I absolutely love it. The South Beach Diet is wonderful, but I was ready for new recipes and options to keep things interesting. This book meets those needs and then some! I've tried several recipes already, and they've been fabulous. This diet is so smart and easy, I will never NOT follow the South Beach Diet principles. With the South Beach Diet Cookbook in my collection, I have more than enough options to keep meals at our home interesting and yummy.

    great recipes

    This cookbook has so many good recipes that it should be on everyone's shelf. My husband and I are not on a diet, but I bought the cookbook after looking through it. We have made at least 8 of the recipes and they are all great. Even if you are not on a low carb diet-buy the cookbook!!

    Fantastic Recipes that fit with South Beach!

    This book is excellent. I was using the diet guidelines and cooking various meals but always had that feeling of wanting reassurance that the meals were in line with the plan. This cookbook has lots of great recipes and I know that they are good for me on the diet. The south beach is a winner and this book is a real blessing for that diet. Wonderful.

    Cook with a sense of Humor

    I'm always looking for a great cookbook and this one qualifies. I loved the simple Wrap that uses cabbage leaves instead of bread for which you need a `rye' sense of humor.

    Outstanding Recipes. Hard to Believe its a diet!

    This is a GREAT diet cookbook. The recipes are fantastic and not hard to cook. It is amazing how well this diet works because it just doesn't feel like a diet. I am not hungry and I love what I eat and I am eating healthy foods. Exceptional!

    If you have the last book, don't get this one

    I give it 2 stars because the author does not really disclose any new information. It is slightly informative; however, if you purchased the last book you do not need to buy this one.
