THE SOUTH BEACH DIET COOKBOOK: More Than 200 Delicious Recipes That Fit the Nation's Top Diet
Cardiologist Agatston The South Beach Diet follows up his blockbuster book on weight-loss with this volume of more than recipes, a number of which are culled from the kitchens of chefs in Miami Beach and other cities. Each recipe is designated as Phase 1, 2 or 3 to help readers discern the segment of the diet for which they are appropriate. Carbohydrates are off-limits during Phase 1, but "good carbs" like whole grains are gradually reintroduced in Phase 2. Phase 3 segues into a less restrictive but still healthy eating regimen. Among the Phase 1 recipes are the simple Reuben Wrap which calls for cabbage leaves instead of bread; the author notes readers "will have to have a 'rye' sense of humor for this" , as well as more complex main dishes such as Coconut Chicken and Sage and Rosemary Pork. Noting that a variety of foods and recipes combats the repetition and boredom that are many dieters' downfall, Agatston presents a wide array of choices, with plenty of enticing fish and vegetarian dishes. He also includes breakfasts, snacks and desserts, as well as ideas for home entertaining "South Beach-style" with a focus on fresh veggies, fat-free dips, shrimp and nuts for appetizers, and main dishes of grilled tuna or flank steak.
