We have been following the South Beach Diet since November, and it IS the best diet around. Very healthy, easy to follow, and a way of eating we have adopted for the rest of our lives to remain healthy. BUT...this guide book was useless. The same food lists are available in the original book or online for free. The book lists mostly things to avoid, and those same things are listed in the original diet book. The book COULD have been helpful by sharing products available which are better choices. SUCH as the fat free, sugar free pudding one of the other reviewers listed. Also, so many restaurants now have South Beach friendly choices, this would have been a helpful topic. Save your money. Buy a good carb cookbook instead. There is a free website that is a wealth of information, with many South Beach recipes, it is 3fatchicks.com Good luck to everyone.

This is the best book for learning about what to eat and what not to eat, whether you want to "do" the South Beach diet or not. I've bought extra copies and given them away. It's the easiest way to see at a glance the nutritional values of just about every food out there! Very easy to use; helps you at home and when dining out, drive-through or sit-down. This way of eating can be simple and cheaper than buying processed, ready-to-eat meals, etc. Just do it!

This book is very useful for being on the South Beach Diet. It gives you a broader selection of food options that the SBD book doesn't. I always take this book grocery shopping so I know more of the food choices that I am allowed.

I have been on the South Beach Diet since August and have lost almost thirty pounds.Once I got past the first couple of days it was easy. The guide is a good reference for those who don't want to carry the original book around. And while there are duplications between both books, the guide does have more listings. And the next edition will probably be more up to date. A great reference! And the fat-free, sugar-free pudding is AWESOME!

The South Beach diet has been great for me. I have not had cravings after the first couple of weeks and have been eating so many foods. I have meals at home and out that are very satisfying. This guide is a great portable way to keep within the guidelines with a quick reference. Both the diet and the books are highly recommended.

Good to have close by or on travel to refer to if you are still counting closely.

I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN OVERWEIGHT AND I'M NOT TALKING JUST A FEW POUNDS HERE AND THERE. AFTER HAVING MY DAUGHTER I GAINED 90 LBS. THROUGH THE PREGNANCY AND FELT AND LOOKED HORRIBLE. SHE IS KNOW 3 YRS. OLD AND I DECIDED ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. I'VE BEEN ON A LOW-CARB/RAW VEGGIE DIET AND LOVE IT. I KNEW I COULDN'T CUT CARBS 100%, SO I ALLOW MYSELF ONLY A FEW CARBS A DAY AND IT CURBS MY CRAVINGS. I'VE LOST ABOUT 20 LBS. IN 4 WEEKS AND STILL LOSING, I HAVE ALSO DECIDED TO MAKE THIS A LIFE STYLE CHANGE AND NOT LOOK AT IT AS A DIET.

I really use this book and it's a great reference for a lot of common foods. However, I hope the next edition will include an index and a more complete list of foods. For example, there are several types of pudding listed. However, the sugur free/fat free instant isn't included. I would think that this would be of interest for those following a low-fat/low-carb diet.

This book helps you get started and keep up the South Beach lifestyle. The lists make the planning for dinner much easier. I recommend it highly.

Very handy and succinct. This is the perfect companion to THE SOUTH BEACH DIET for people like me who have been on the diet for a month or more and are beyond Phase 3 and living the 'South Beach Diet Lifestyle'.
