The South Beach DietAudiobook CD - 2003
Originally created by Miami's foremost cardiologist to prevent/reverse the heart and vascular problems that result from obesity, The South Beach Diet's main thrust is to provide a balanced, heart-healthy plan that fundamentally changes people's tastes in a manner that virtually eliminates interest in sugar and processed foods. During the first two weeks, in which dieters are asked to heavily restrict their consumption of sugars and carbohydrates and reduce their caloric intake, the pounds come off quickly, a valuable psychological jumpstart to the diet. During phase two, where most of the weight is lost, dieters blend carbohydrates back into the plan. Phase three is maintenance. The result, from not eating as many carbohydrates, is that dieters can eat whatever they want and still see a reduction in their waistlines more than any other area of their bodies.
