What is the South Beach Diet all about?
The diet was created by Dr. Arthur Agatston, a cardiologist in South Florida who was looking to develop a long-term diet plan for his chronically overweight heart patients. The diet involves building your meals around specific allowable and forbidden foods. After 3 unique phases are complete, the South Beach diet will help you achieve an optimal body weight and give you the necessary skills to maintain this new way of life.
The Glycemic Index is the science behind the South Beach Diet. The Glycemic Index, (or GI), ranks foods based on their effect on blood sugar in your body. For example, a potato is a very high-GI food and raises blood sugar very quickly after being consumed; berries have a low-GI rating, so they don't have an adverse effect on your blood sugar.
