Five years ago, with the publication of The South Beach Diet,
renowned Miami cardiologist Dr. Arthur Agatston set out to change the
way America eats. Now he has an even more ambitious goal: to change the
way America lives by helping Americans become fitter as well as thinner
and healthier . . . for life.
In the all-new The South Beach Diet Supercharged, Dr. 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 carbs, 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 look fitter and you'll burn more fat and
calories all day—even at rest.
Also included is the latest
nutritional research on how specific foods high in vitamins, minerals,
fiber, and a host of phytonutrients help keep you healthy; new and
expanded lists of Foods to Enjoy; taste-tempting Meal Plans for phases
1 and 2; and dozens of easy-to-prepare new recipes, including Eggs
Frijoles, Chock-Full-of-Veggies Chili, Roasted Tomato Soup, Homestyle
Turkey Meatloaf, and South Beach Diet Tiramisu. In every chapter you'll
find inspiring success stories from real-life South Beach dieters
andplenty of effective weight loss tips. And as an added bonus, Dr.
Agatston answers the questions you've most often asked him about the
diet since the original book was published.
