In the all-new The South Beach Diet Supercharged, Dr. Arthur Agatston shows you how to rev up your metabolism and lose weight faster while following the proven healthy eating principles of the original diet: choose good carbohydrates, good fats, lean protein, and low-fat dairy. Collaborating with Dr. Joseph Signorile, a professor of exercise physiology at the University of Miami, Dr. Agatston presents a cutting-edge, three-phase workout that perfectly complements the three phases of the diet itself. Based on the latest exercise science, this ease-into-it fitness program combines low- and high-intensity interval exercise with a focus on walking and functional core body-toning exercises. The result: You’ll feel better and you’ll burn more fat and calories all day long.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah Wescott | 2/11/2014

    " In just a couple weeks I've been able to regulate my blood sugar so I don't have hypoglycemia spikes. For that, I thank my doctor for recommending South Beach. It's accessible to the average reader and I don't feel like I'm on a diet. I just need lots of protein, fiber and whole grains. If anything, I chastise myself when I don't eat enough, which is kind of cool. Now that my body is working again, my brain can get back to my usual reading diet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 1/24/2014

    " The morning after I finished the original South Beach book, I checked this out of the library so I would have as much information as possible. Pretty much all of the diet information remains the same (with a few minor changes), but I'm really glad he added a section talking about the importance of excersise and offering some workout suggestions. "

    " This version, compared with the first, is much more informative. With the first version, I felt confused and wasn't sure how to begin. Though I still have questions, I felt this book covered more basics and provided a good foundation. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 11/7/2013

    " This book was more like a science book...and it just kept going. I had lost interest in the diet by the time I even got to the exercise program. No offense, I am not stupid however I need a diet that requires just a little less reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeannie Mineer | 8/13/2013

    " Good book telling the reader alot about diet and lifestyle change instead of dieting. Very much the same as a Mediteranian diet of lots of fresh fruits and vegatables and vegie protien. Fish and other white meat instead of red meat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 5/8/2012

    " I hate the name South Beach Diet - it sounds like such a fad diet. People continue to confuse this diet as a "low carb" diet when it fact it is just healthy eating, plain and simple. The new information in the book is worth reading, and the recipes are delicious! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megg | 4/16/2012

    " This is the only "diet" that has ever worked for me. It's really more of a lifestyle than a diet, and it has completely changed my life for the better. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to understand how food works with their body, and anyone who is looking to get healthier. "
