Is the South Beach Diet safe? Is it recommended by doctors and medical professionals?

Yes. The South Beach Diet is a doctor-designed, safe, effective weight loss plan. Originally created by world-renowned cardiologist, Dr. Arthur Agatston (who practices, teaches, and conducts research in Miami) to combat heart disease, the South Beach Diet was recommended by Dr. Agatston to his patients.

Dr. Agatston observed that his patients who followed the principles of the South Beach Diet lost weight safely and easily. To date, more than 11 million people have chosen the South Beach Diet! The new South Beach Diet® follows most of the core principles of the original South Beach Diet that was created by Dr. Agatston, with a few minor updates based on the latest research in weight management.
