Where it All Started
The South Beach Diet was originally developed by world-renowned cardiologist Dr. Arthur Agatston to combat heart disease. But when Dr. Agatston observed that following the principles of South Beach allowed his patients to safely—and easily—lose weight, it became clear that this diet could also benefit those looking to slim down.
In 2003, Dr. Agatston published the first of his 12 best-selling books. These books have since become some of the biggest blockbusters in the weight loss world. To date, more than 11 million people have turned to the South Beach Diet to help them lose weight and live healthier—for life.
Fast forward to 2016, and we’ve taken those original principles and made the South Beach Diet easier than ever, by creating a meal plan that makes following the nutritional principles of the diet easy (and delicious!).
About the Diet
First and foremost, the South Beach Diet is a doctor-designed plan. So you won’t find any fads or gimmicks here. Just safe, effective weight loss and a plan you can trust.
Now here’s where it gets good: This isn’t your typical diet plan, full of cardboard “food” and constant calorie counting. Your body gets the energy it needs from real, whole food we deliver to your door plus fresh healthy foods you add in. Think fresh, clean, healthy food—high in lean protein, lots of vibrant veggies, healthy fats and good carbs from fruits and whole grains. So you’ll shed pounds and learn how to eat for life—without feeling hungry or deprived. It’s a total weight loss win-win!
The diet plan consists of three distinct phases designed to optimize your body’s needs during each stage of weight loss. In addition to the food we’ll send you, you’ll get recipes for your DIY meals, information and easy-to-follow exercise plans that match where you are in your journey. The best part? You’ll finish with a whole toolkit of knowledge that’ll help you keep the weight off and achieve the healthy lifestyle you’ve always wanted.
The South Beach Diet is packed with everything you need to get in the best shape of your life, plus tools to help you learn how to stay that way. You’re going to love this program. And what’s more, you’re going to love the way you look and feel!
So let’s dive in. Here’s an overview of the South Beach Diet:
Phase 1: Body Reboot
This phase is designed to reset your body’s chemistry for quick or fastweight loss, reduce your cravings for sweet and starchy foods, and prepare your body for steady weight loss in Phase 2.
During this first week, you’ll enjoy fast weight loss as you eat delicious South Beach Diet® meals we provide. That’s right: We’ll send you South Beach Diet meals all prepared with the nutritional parameters for Phase 1 in mind. With globally inspired meals (Chicken Fajita Bowl or Roasted Turkey with Herb Gravy, anyone?!), what’s not to love?
During this first week, you’ll go lighter on carbs like fruit and whole grains, and will fill up on lean proteins and healthy fats, which will keep you nourished and satisfied as you lose.

Phase 2: Steady Weight Loss
Phase 2 is designed to help you achieve steady weight loss and to teach you how to make the South Beach Diet nutrition principles a regular part of your life. You’ll stay on this phase until you’ve reached your target weight. Each week, you’ll enjoy fully prepared South Beach Diet meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. So, hello Hot & Spicy Chicken (AKA 20 grams of protein in six minutes)! Plus, you’ll gradually reintroduce other nutritious, delicious foods—say hello to fruits, whole grains and additional veggies!
In Phase 2, you’ll also enjoy some DIY meals, with guidance from us, so you can try your hand at cooking healthy meals or dining out. This way, you’ll be prepared for Phase 3 and beyond.

You’ll continue to embrace fitness and your new healthy lifestyle. Plus, we have all your South Beach Diet favorites available for A La Carte purchase, so you never have to go it alone!
