This book includes recipes from the expanded food selections introduced in Supercharged. It's recipes are creative and flavorful without being terribly time-consuming. For followers of the South Beach Diet, this is a must-have recipe book. Try the Feta Sirloin Burger with Chipotle Onion Rings and Overnight Slaw!

I have a different South Beach Diet cookbook that is falling apart because I use it so much. This book has some good recipes for summer grilling and such. There's not a lot of recipes for everyday use, but it will be helpful during the summer when I'd like something healthier than grilling a fatty burger on the grill.
