How the South Beach Diet Works

Burn fat with a high-protein, low-carb, low-sugar
weight loss program.

Burn fat and transform your metabolism with a wide variety of wholesome foods, high in lean protein, with heart-healthy fats and good carbs from fruit, vegetables and whole grains.

Unlike other low-carb approaches, the South Beach Diet distinguishes between heart-healthy, unsaturated, "good" fats, like olive oil, avocado and nuts, and unhealthy "bad" fats, for weight loss that’s both satisfying and healthy!
