He also wrote the best-selling book entitled South Beach Diet: The Delicious, Doctor-Designed, Foolproof Plan for Fast and Healthy Weight Loss. The South Beach Diet gives emphasis on the consumption of healthy fats and carbs. Not only do doctors believe that too much intake of unhealthy or bad carbohydrates adds to the probability of a person having heart diseases but it creates a resistance to insulin. Insulin is important to our body without which we will tend to eat a lot but still our body will be in a state of starvation.
The South Beach Diet has three stages. In all three of them, Dr. Agataston advises to lessen the intake of unhealthy fats.
The first stage of The South Beach Diet lasts for two weeks. Lean meats are advised but dieters are asked to forget sweets that have high sugar content and that include the yummy cakes and bread of friendly neighborhood bakeshop. Staying away from this food will make your body non-resist insulin and in turn, your body will burn up the fats you wanted to loose leading to weight loss of up to 13 pounds. The objective is to eat three balanced meals in a day and to have adequate food intake so that you won’t crave for more.
