Is South Beach a Keto Diet?

As keto continues to be a growing trend in the health and wellness world, we’ve created a new keto-friendly South Beach Diet plan to help people lose weight and learn how to keep it off.

What is keto-friendly? It’s our life-friendly take on classic keto. That means you’ll enjoy more quality carbs, higher protein levels and more food variety, including foods that are off-limits on the keto diet like milk, whole grains and beans.

Our ketofriendly approach to weight loss delivers about 50 grams of net carbs per day. (Net carbs are the total carbohydrates in a food or beverage, minus dietary fiber and erythritol, a type of sugar alcohol.)

While South Beach Diet is a low-carb, healthy-fat approach, it’s not “strict keto” or intended to allow individuals to achieve or maintain nutritional ketosis. And for good reason: We don’t believe nutritional ketosis needs to be obtained to gain many of the benefits of a ketogenic diet for weight loss and overall health and wellness.

By simply following the South Beach Diet plans, you can lose weight and get in the best shape of your life!
