Why Is South Beach The Darling Of All Low Carb Diets?

Dec 4, 2007
Today we will review the South Beach Diet. With all low carb diets claiming success, it can be hard to pick the best diet for you. Are all low carbohydrate diets equal? What is the differences among the various diets? It can be confusing with all the products and plans you see out there. Doctors have been following most low carbohydrate diets for years. So what's known about
the South Beach Diet?

First enjoy this delicious recipe that is ok for most low-carb diets:

Chicago Deep Dish Quiche Pizza Delight
4 ounces cream cheese
3 eggs
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/3 cup plain yoghurt
1/2 teaspoon oregano, black pepper and/or basil
2 cups shredded yellow cheese of your choice
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In mixing bowl, beat together the eggs and cream cheese until smooth. Stir in yoghurt, parmesan and spices. Pour 2 cups cheese into a nonstick, 13x9 inch baking pan or equivalent.

Add egg mixture on top of cheese and blend together so that cheese is suspended in the mixture and not concentrated at the bottom of the pan. Bake in oven approximately 30 minutes and then briefly remove pan
to add on more mozzarella. Return to oven for 10 more minutes or until dish is bubbly and brown.

Yields 4 servings
Total Net carbs: 6 grams per serving

Here is a review of the South Beach Diet, one of the most well known of all diets:

Of all low carb diets, the South Beach Diet is a huge hit. Developed by Dr. Arthur Agatston, The South Beach Diet teaches dieters to eat the right carbs and the right fats. The diet has three phases. In the first dieter's banish their bad carb cravings and induce rapid weight loss. In the second phase, some types of carbs are reintroduced and weight loss is slower.

The final phase is the Diet for Life. Most report a good initial weight loss, and a pretty lasting weight reduction. Of all low carb diets, many feel that it is easy to follow. Probably the reason for this feeling about South Beach Diet is that there is no counting involved, just a list of foods you can and cannot eat.

As with all low carb diets, there are also negatives. Some say that if you don't stick with the lists of foods your weight can come right back. Others did not like the use of aspartame, as perhaps dangerous in the long term.

Many people bought the book, and tried the South Beach Diet plan. Big companies are pushing South Beach Diet more than all low carb diets.

I'll leave you with a great tip for success in all low carb diets:

Drink six to eight glasses of water a day. Water itself helps cut down on water retention because it acts as a natural diuretic. Taken before meals, it dulls the appetite by giving you a "full feeling."
