Dr Arthur Agatson: The South Beach Diet Supercharged
On “Live With Kelly” August 3, Diet Week concluded with Dr. Arthur Agatson, author of The South Beach Diet Supercharged. Dr. Agatsone explained that the South Beach Diet is not really a diet, but a lifestyle that promotes health and wellness. He developed it many years ago for his patients that suffered from heart issues, and since that time, it has been one of America’s best-selling and most popular diets.
South Beach Diet Supercharged: Strategic Snacking
The South Beach Diet contains three phases: a rapid weight loss phase, an educational phase, and a maintenance phase. During phase 1, you should eat large quantities of vegetables like broccoli and asparagus. Low fat cheese and nuts are also good foods to snack on– Dr. Agatson recommends strategic snacking to reduce cravings during the day.
During phase 2, whole fruits, berries, and whole grains are the foods that Dr. Agatson suggests eating. Avoid high-sugar fruits like pineapple and white starches. If you just have a few pounds that you’d like to lose, you can start directly with phase 2.
South Beach Tiramisu Recipe
Phase 3 is all about maintaining the great weight loss you’ve already achieved. You can even indulge in things like red wine and dark chocolate, as long as you don’t overdo it. Dr. Agatson showed the hosts a slice of South Beach Tiramisu, the recipe to which you can find in his book. Kelly and Nick both said it was delicious.
