Just recently released is the newly expanded South Beach Diet. I’m so happy to report that this latest book, The South Beach Diet: Supercharged Faster Weight Loss and Better Health for Life, has added a strong exercise component to its traditional diet. The diet hasn’t changed per se, but the menus, recipes and food selections for Phase 1 and Phase 2 have been enhanced. I myself have never done the South Beach Diet, but I was speaking yesterday to a registered dietitian about the diet’s components. She gave a big thumbs up to Phase 2 and Phase 3, but felt that Phase 1 was a bit too strict to do for 2 weeks. Three days seemed a more appropriate time span according to this diet expert.
Regardless of what you think of the South Beach Diet, it seems like the Supercharged edition includes a more practical and longterm approach to keeping weight off. That’s great news because most diets fail since there are little lifelong lessons built into their program. If you love the Supercharged version, there is also a Supercharged Workout DVD that goes along with it.
