If you’re trying to watch your weight, I don’t have to tell you that diet books come and go. Fad diets are a dime a dozen.
But about 20 years ago a new diet book appeared and has had incredible staying power. It was called the South Beach Diet, the creation of acclaimed cardiologist Dr. Arthur Agatston.
With its emphasis on limiting fat and carbs, and on adding more dietary fiber, the South Beach Diet has demonstrated its popularity.
Yet by 2011, Dr. Agatston was still worried about how well the American people were doing. That’s when he wrote a book called The South Beach Wake-Up Call, and that’s when I spoke with him.
So here now, from 2011. Dr. Arthur Agatston.
Dr. Arthur Agatston Is medical director of wellness and prevention at Baptist Health South Florida. He practices at South Beach Preventive Cardiology.
