Everything You Need to Know About the Brand New South Beach DietArticle posted in: Diet & Nutrition South Beach Diet South Beach DIY
The South Beach Diet has helped millions of people lose weight. The plan was originally developed by world-renowned cardiologist Dr. Arthur Agatston to combat heart disease, with his first book publishing in 2003. There have been many discoveries in the world of nutrition since that time. The launch of The New Keto-Friendly South Beach Diet Book reveals how a keto friendly diet can help you reach your goals.
So, what is different about the brand new South Beach Diet? Keep reading to learn more about our new keto friendly approach to weight loss.
The New South Beach Diet Book
Our meal plans were designed based on the principles of Dr. Arthur Agatston’s New Keto-Friendly South Beach Diet book and are rooted in its nutritional foundation. Just like in the new South Beach Diet book, the focus of our program is on high-quality Healthy Fats, Proteins and non-starchy Vegetables. We took this low carb approach to dieting and turned it into a convenient meal delivery service that makes weight loss easier. Our fully-prepared meals and snacks contain wholesome ingredients that fit perfectly into the new keto friendly program.
What is Keto Friendly?
The South Beach Diet Keto Friendly program limits your net carb intake to 50 grams per day. This means that you can still enjoy healthy carbs in moderation on this lifestyle. This is typically more than other keto diets allow, as they want you to maintain nutritional ketosis.
Our keto-friendly lifestyle is not “strict keto” and is not intended to allow individuals to achieve or maintain nutritional ketosis. This is because we don’t believe nutritional ketosis needs to be obtained to gain many of the benefits of a low-carb, higher-fat dietary pattern for weight loss and overall health and wellness. This ultimately makes our version of keto an easier transition and a long-term healthy lifestyle. It allows you to enjoy the benefits of keto without cutting carbs completely out of your life.
Please note that these changes are not applicable to our Diabetes plan. The South Beach Diet has a program specifically designed for people with Type 2 Diabetes and prediabetes. Click here to learn more >
What’s on the Menu?
On the new South Beach Diet Keto Friendly plan, you will still get healthy, low carb, fully-prepared meals delivered right to your door. You’ll still get your energy from Proteins (like chicken breast and fish) and Healthy Fats (like olive oil and avocado). Exercise is still important (at least 30 minutes per day) and water remains an essential part of your healthy lifestyle (drink half your body weight in ounces of fluid each day).
In addition to the Healthy Fats and Proteins we spoke of earlier, you will eat at least three servings of fiber-rich, non-starchy vegetables like leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower and celery each day. There is a large variety of non-starchy vegetables to choose from. Click here for our non-starchy veggie cheat sheet >
Beans and legumes, whole grains and starchy vegetables are kept in moderation on our new plan due to their higher carb content. You can still enjoy these ingredients, just make sure they fit into your daily net carb limit of 50 grams.
Fruit is also extremely limited on our new Keto Friendly program because of its sugar content. If you’d like to enjoy a small amount of fruit on occasion, we recommend berries as they are lower in sugar than most other options. A quarter cup of raspberries can count as all three of your daily limited Extras. It’s also still important to make sure that they fit into your 50-gram net carb limit. Learn more about net carbs >
We’ve also developed South Beach Diet Keto Friendly shakes with probiotics to support digestive health (and prevent bloat). They also contain MCT oil, a quick-burning fat that’s easily converted to energy. These creamy, low carb shakes can also be delivered directly to your door to help you succeed on this weight loss journey.
What About Resources?
You’ll still have access to the tools that make the South Beach Diet so successful. Of course, this includes The Palm Weight Loss Blog, which brings you fresh keto friendly recipes and new lifestyle, fitness and nutrition articles weekly.
You’ll still receive a Grocery Guide and Meal Planner with your order, complete with approved foods, tips and note space to log what you ate, how much you drank and exercised. Speaking of tracking, the South Beach Diet Tracker app is available for FREE on your phones app store to help you keep track of your meal plan on those busy days.
