About the South Beach Diet

The South Beach Diet is the delicious, doctor-designed, foolproof plan for fast and healthy weight loss.

Originally created by world-renowned cardiologist, Dr. Arthur Agatston (who practices, teaches, and conducts research in Miami) to combat heart disease, Dr. Agatston observed that following the principles of the South Beach Diet allowed his patients to safely—and easily—lose weight. Pounds didn't just come off—they stayed off, and led to a healthier, more active lifestyle.

Word of his patients' dramatic successes quickly spread, and soon, the South Beach Diet was on fire across Miami. In 2003, Dr. Agatston published the first of his 12 best-selling books. These books became some of the biggest blockbusters in the weight loss world.

To date, more than 11 million people have chosen the South Beach Diet!

The nutritional foundation of the South Beach Diet is now recognized as one of the healthiest ways of eating: Enjoy normal-sized portions of lean proteins from beef, chicken, turkey, fish, even shellfish. Include good fats, from avocado, nuts, and olive oil. And have plenty of vegetables and other sources of healthy carbs. Eat so that your hunger is satisfied and your body is fueled.

New to the South Beach Diet is the announcement of its "keto-friendly" meal plan, designed to be a low-carb, high-fat dietary pattern consistent with a ketogenic diet. The South Beach Diet Keto-Friendly meal plan offers consumers the ability to select keto-friendly meal options, snacks and shakes that deliver about 40 grams of "net carbs" (i.e., total carbs less dietary fiber and sugar alcohols) per day in Phase 1 and 50 grams of "net carbs" per day in Phase 2. Look to the Palm for more information about the South Beach Diet Keto-Friendly plan, including meal plans, articles and keto-friendly.

Also new is the launch of South Beach's new nutrition pledge that includes commitments to provide foods that are free from the following items:

  • No artificial flavors or sweeteners
  • No colors from artificial sources
  • No High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • No Added MSG
  • No artificial transfat (No Partially Hydrogenated Oils)
  • The initiative is aimed at offering meal plans with simple, more recognizable ingredients as the company continues to evolve and innovate to help current and future customers succeed with weight loss and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

    The South Beach meal delivery program boasts a menu of more than 100 meals and snacks with globally–inspired flavors, including 24 new foods and two, new, keto-friendly South Beach Simply Fit Shakes. The Simply Fit Shake contains only 3 grams of net carbohydrates per serving, added trace minerals such as potassium, magnesium and calcium for hydration, and MCT oil (medium chain triglycerides) — one of the top supplements associated with a keto diet.

    The South Beach Diet's unique three-phased approach has revolutionized weight loss.

    Phase 1

    In this one-week Body Reboot that delivers quick weight loss, you'll dine on gluten-free foods high in lean proteins and healthy fats (like avocado and nuts). With three meals and two snacks per day, the idea is to satisfy your hunger, since nothing undermines weight loss attempts like the sensation of needing more food. For one week (just 7 days!), sugary and starchy foods are off the menu. The purpose of Phase 1 is to reset your body, reduce your cravings for sugar and refined starches, and prepare the body for Phase 2.

    Phase 2

    In week two, Phase 2 begins—get ready for steady weight loss. As a result of Phase 1, your body will react differently to foods that caused you to be overweight; you will have fewer cravings. During this period, continue eating lean proteins and healthy fats, more vegetables and more good carbs, including fruits and whole grains. Because the principles are simple to follow, you can take your new way of eating out to restaurants, to parties, anywhere life takes you. And as the weight comes off, add some activity to tone and shape your new body. Stay on this phase until you hit your target.

    Phase 3

    This is the stage that lasts the rest of your life. By this point, you fully understand and easily live the principles of the South Beach Diet. You'll enjoy all foods in moderation, following the basic South Beach Diet principles to eat your favorite foods in normal-sized portions. And, you'll have learned the way to maintain a healthy weight without hunger or deprivation and live a life of optimal health.
