From Publishers Weekly

Cardiologist Agatston ( The South Beach Diet) follows up his blockbuster book on weight-loss with this volume of more than 200 recipes, a number of which are culled from the kitchens of chefs in Miami Beach and other cities. Each recipe is designated as Phase 1, 2 or 3 to help readers discern the segment of the diet for which they are appropriate. Carbohydrates are off-limits during Phase 1, but "good carbs" (like whole grains) are gradually reintroduced in Phase 2. Phase 3 segues into a less restrictive but still healthy eating regimen. Among the Phase 1 recipes are the simple Reuben Wrap (which calls for cabbage leaves instead of bread; the author notes readers "will have to have a ''rye'' sense of humor for this"), as well as more complex main dishes such as Coconut Chicken and Sage and Rosemary Pork. Phase 2 and 3 eaters will find delicious options such as Sesame Baked Chicken, Crab Royale and Couscous Salad. Noting that a variety of foods and recipes combats the repetition and boredom that are many dieters'' downfall, Agatston presents a wide array of choices, with plenty of enticing fish and vegetarian dishes. He also includes breakfasts, snacks and desserts, as well as ideas for home entertaining "South Beach-style" with a focus on fresh veggies, fat-free dips, shrimp and nuts for appetizers, and main dishes of grilled tuna or flank steak. Agatston leaves no stone unturned, even providing shopping lists and recipes for homemade condiments that forgo sugars.

BREAKFASTS

IN MY MEDICAL PRACTICE, I''VE OBSERVED THAT A GREAT MANY PATIENTS WHO SAY THEY NEVER EAT BREAKFAST ALSO SUFFER FROM OBESITY. IS THERE A CONNECTION? QUITE POSSIBLY. GOING TOO LONG WITHOUT FOOD CAN BE A PROBLEM, BECAUSE THE RESULTING HUNGER PANGS CAN CAUSE YOU TO OVEREAT, USUALLY THE WORST FOODS. THAT ALONE MAKES IT IMPORTANT TO START THE DAY WITH A SATISFYING MEAL.

BAD BREAKFAST HABITS MAY ALSO SET YOU UP FOR TROUBLE AT LUNCHTIME OR LATER. ONE IMPORTANT STUDY PROVED THAT STARTING THE MORNING WITH PROCESSED CARBS-- A BAGEL, SAY--WILL STIMULATE CRAVINGS FOR MORE OF THE SAME THROUGHOUT THE DAY. THE SAME RESEARCH HAS SHOWN THAT A BREAKFAST OF GOOD PROTEINS AND FATS- -LIKE A CHEESE AND VEGETABLE OMELET--WILL ACTUALLY KEEP THOSE URGES AWAY. EGGS (OR EGG SUBSTITUTE), VEGETABLES, AND LEAN MEATS ARE ALL HEALTHY WAYS TO START THE DAY.

PHASE 2

Oat Smoothie

If you''re not a fan of strawberries, you can replace them with the berry of your choice in this quick and delicious breakfast shake.

2 1/2 cups strawberries, halved 1 cup fat-free plain yogurt 1/2 teaspoon sugar substitute 1/4 cup nonfat dry milk 1/4 cup chopped walnuts 3 tablespoons oat bran 2 tablespoons sugar-free pancake syrup 1/2 cup ice cubes

In a blender or food processor, combine the strawberries, yogurt, sugar substitute, dry milk, walnuts, oat bran, syrup, and ice cubes. Blend until smooth and frothy.

PHASE 3

Soy-ous Apricot Muffins

Rather than munching a sugar-full bakery muffin when the urge strikes, enjoy these healthy alternatives as an occasional breakfast on Phase 3. The soy in these muffins provides you with phytochemicals, protein, and dietary fiber and has been proven to reduce "bad" cholesterol.

2 cups whole wheat or whole grain pastry flour 1/4 cup sugar substitute 1/4 cup sugar 1/3 cup soy flour 1 tablespoon baking powder 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg Pinch of salt 1 egg, beaten 3/4 cup soy milk 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce 3 tablespoons canola oil 1/3 cup dried apricots, chopped

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat a 12-cup nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray or line with paper baking cups.

In a large bowl, thoroughly combine the pastry flour, sugar substitute, sugar, soy flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Hollow out the center of the dry mixture, and add the egg, soy milk, applesauce, oil, and apricots, stirring until moistened. Pour the batter into the prepared muffin cups.

Bake for 14 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then place on a rack to cool completely.

PHASE 2

Wholesome Oat Muffins

These healthy muffins are so delicious you''ll want to enjoy them for breakfast every day. Make a double batch and freeze half for later.

3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons oats 1 cup buttermilk 1 1/4 cups white whole wheat flour or whole grain flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon salt 2/3 cup chopped walnuts 1/3 cup canola oil 1 egg, beaten 1/3 cup brown sugar substitute 1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Coat a 12-cup nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray or line with paper baking cups.

In a small bowl, combine % cup of the oats and the buttermilk. Let soak for 30 minutes.

In a large bowl, stir together the oil, egg, brown sugar substitute, and vanilla until well blended. Stir in the oat mixture. Stir in the flour mixture until just combined. Do not overmix.

Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups, filling them about two-thirds full. Sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons oats over the muffins. Bake for 11 to 15 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool on a rack for 5 minutes. Remove to the rack to cool completely.

PHASE 3

Apple Walnut Muffins

Chopped fresh apple, not the usual applesauce, flavors these moist muffins. If you really like cinnamon, you can add an extra 14 to 1/2 teaspoon for added zip. Make these an occasional part of your Phase 3 breakfast plan.

1 1/2 cups whole wheat or whole grain pastry flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup buttermilk 3 tablespoons canola oil 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar 2 tablespoons sugar substitute 1 egg, beaten 1/2 medium apple, peeled and finely chopped 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

PHASE 2

Whole Wheat Loaf

If you have had a difficult time finding a bread at your local grocery store that fits your new diet, perhaps you might want to consider this simple whole wheat bread. It''s very easy to make, and the results are just delicious.

1 1/2 cups water (at room temperature) 2 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons sugar substitute 3-3 1/2 cups whole wheat bread flour 2 tablespoons gluten flour 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons quick rise yeast

In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, combine the water, oil, sugar substitute, whole wheat bread flour, gluten flour, walnuts, salt, and yeast to form a rough dough. Let the dough stand for 15 to 20 minutes.

Place the dough on a lightly floured board and knead for about 10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.

Place the dough in an oiled bowl and cover it with a damp cloth. Let the dough rise in a warm spot for about an hour, until it has doubled. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Turn the dough onto a board and shape it into an oblong loaf. Coat an 8 1/2" X 4 1/2" bread pan with cooking spray. Place the dough in the pan. Bake the bread for 40 to 45 minutes. Remove the bread from the oven and turn the bread out onto a cooling rack.

A Guide to Grains and Baked Goods

The biggest adjustment for most people on the South Beach Diet is having to change their relationship with carbohydrates. Many carbs are good for you, and they are an important part of this regimen. Vegetables are carbs, and you''ll eat them in abundance. You''ll enjoy fruit, too, once you''ve gotten beyond the first 2 weeks of the program. But to many people, carbs often mean comfy, cozy treats like breads and baked goods.

Some of these carbs--the highly processed packaged ones--are going to have to become "once in a great while" treats. There''s virtually no way to eat them as often as you once did and still lose weight. Nearly all the fiber and nutrients have been removed in the manufacturing process, leaving only the sugars and starches. They cause you to store excess weight, and they create cravings for even more bad carbs.

But I recognize that a normal diet also will probably include bread, and even muffins or pancakes once in a while. Luckily, you can go on eating these foods while on the South Beach plan. You may even be able to go on using your favorite, traditional recipes for baked goods. It will simply require a little adaptation--replacing the bad grains, which have low fiber, with better ones.

Take bread, for example. The kind that you buy in supermarkets and even in most bakeries is made with all-purpose enriched white flour, from which the whole grain has been removed. Once that grain has been stripped away, the fiber and many of the nutrients go with it. In fact, a useful rule of thumb is that manufacturers use vitamin-enriched flour only when the natural nutrients have been removed during processing. A single slice of white bread contains the equivalent impact on your blood sugar of a tablespoon of pure white sugar, straight from the bowl. Many people eat that bread with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can imagine the effect of six or more slices a day on your attempts to lose weight.

If you take any recipe and replace at least some of the white flour with whole wheat flour, or rye or soy flour, you increase the amount of fiber and decrease the degree to which it raises your blood sugar level. You still won''t be able to consume six slices a day, but bread will be back on your eating plan without wrecking your diet. The same is true for muffins and pancakes.

You can usually find several kinds of flour in the supermarket, nearly all of which are better for you than the traditional bleached white, all- purpose kind. Here''s how to get bread and baked goods back into your diet, once you''ve reached Phase 3. In Phase 2, you should still try to avoid white flour.

Bread: You can take any recipe for white bread and replace half the flour with whole wheat flour. It''s that simple. You can also try rye flour, which comes in three varieties: light, medium, and dark. Rye flour imparts an interesting, slightly sour flavor to bread. Because rye flour is denser than white flour, you should increase the amount of yeast so that the bread rises properly. If you use light rye flour, replace half the white flour with it. If using medium rye flour, replace one-third of the white flour. If using dark rye flour, replace no more than one-quarter of the white flour in your bread recipe. There''s even something called dark rye meal, which will give you pumpernickel bread--dark, dense, and very tasty.

You can also make bread using buckwheat flour or oat flour. Replace one- quarter of the white flour with the oat flour, and increase the yeast slightly, too.

"Quick breads" and muffins: "Quick bread" means any kind made using baking powder and baking soda instead of yeast. The dough doesn''t rise--you just bake the batter. You can simply replace half the white flour with whole wheat. Whole wheat flour is coarser than white flour, so do not try to sift it. Quick breads made with whole wheat flour will have a nutty flavor and may have slightly less volume than those made with white flour.

You can make muffins with oat bran instead of flour, too. You can also use barley flour, which has a mild taste, or oat flour, which is especially good in cookies.

Pancakes: You can readily find pancake mixes made with buckwheat. The taste may take a little getting used to, but they''re quite good served with sugar- free maple syrup and one of the heart-healthy (trans-free) butter substitutes. Or if you''re making pancakes from scratch, replace up to one- fifth of the white flour in your favorite pancake recipe with buckwheat flour.

You can also make homemade pancakes using whole wheat flour. Even oat bran can be used to make terrific pancakes.

PHASE 2

Breakfast Popovers with Parmesan

Here''s a popover that''s sure to please. For variety, you can swap the Parmesan for other cheeses, such as freshly grated Romano or Asiago cheese.

1/2 cup liquid egg substitute 1 1/4 cups whole grain flour 1 cup + 2 tablespoons fat-free milk 1 tablespoon trans-free margarine, melted 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Coat 8 custard cups or popover-pan cups with cooking spray.

Whisk the egg substitute in a medium bowl. Add the flour, milk, and margarine, and whisk until the ingredients are combined. Stir in the cheese.

Evenly divide the batter among the prepared cups. Place the cups on a large baking sheet.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until the popovers are puffed and golden. Remove the popovers from the cups and serve hot.

PHASE 3

Quick Nut Bread

This is called a quick bread because it is made without yeast. You can easily alter this recipe to include your favorite flavor with a couple of simple ingredient changes. This bread may be baked in virtually anything that you can put in your oven; just remember to fill the container only three-quarters full. If you don''t, it will overflow when it expands, and you''ll have a big mess to clean up!

1/3 cup sugar substitute 1/3 cup sugar 1/3 cup canola oil 1 egg, beaten 1 1/2 cups fat-free milk 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup whole wheat flour 1 tablespoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup finely chopped walnuts

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a 9" X 5" loaf pan with cooking spray.

In a medium bowl, thoroughly combine the sugar substitute, sugar, oil, and egg. Stir in the milk. Add the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, and stir until smooth. Fold in the nuts. Place the mixture into the prepared pan.

Bake for 1 hour, or until the loaf is brown on the top and firm to the touch in the center. Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then remove from the pan and cool on a rack. For easiest slicing, refrigerate to cool further before slicing.

"The Southbeach Diet Cookbook" was written to provide a number of recipes to complement the original "The Southbeach Diet" book.
The cookbook opens with an overview of the diet program. It describes the diet though not in the detail of the original book. It explains what you need to do to get your fridge and pantry ''southbeach'' friendly. It explains what is allowed in terms of diary, meat, oils, pasta, snacks, beverages and more.
Next the book has a question/answer session with Dr. Agatston. In this section he updates some of the information from the original book (milk and yogurt are now allowed in phase 1 for example) and he gets into more detailed regarding different types of food.
Then comes the core of the book. The recipe categories include breakfasts, appetiziers and snacks, soups, salads, side dishes and accompaniments, fish shellfish and poultry, meats, vegetarian entrees and desserts. Each recipe indicates what phase it is appropriate for and many of the recipes are pictured in mouthwatering photographs!
Sample recipes include Vegetable Salad with Feta, Homestyle Green Bean Casserole, Pan Seared Pecan Grouper, Whole Wheat Vegetable Lasagna, and Apple and Almond Souffle. Over 200 recipes.
One very nice feature is the inclusion of recipes so you can make many of your own condiments. Unfortunately ketchup, barbeque sauce and many other "toppers" are laden with high fructose corn syrup. So Dr. Agatston includes the details on how you can make your own.
Overall the quality of recipes is very good. The one negative I have is the total avoidance of sugar and reliance on sugar substitutes. I would rather use real sugar in moderation than sugar substitutes like aspartame. He has a recipe for strawberries with velvety chocolate dip and suggests you use sugar free chocolate syrup. Instead why not use a high quality cocoa bar and melt it down. This is healthier than the faux sugars like malitol,which are in sugar free products and so much more satisfying.
Dr. Agatston has some wonderful recipes in this book from top chefs and restaurants and they are worth buying the book for. But many of the desserts with the fake sugars and fat free sour cream fall flat. Moderation is key. Use the real deal in a tiny quantity like the French do.

I''m a long time (as these things go) south beach dieter: I started in January 2003, lost 30 pounds by July 2003, and have kept it off. I bought this cookbook because of the initial buzz that there would be some really interesting new recipes. Unfortunately, the first two I tried were bombs. The oven roasted chick peas had very little flavor and a really odd texture (maybe I didn''t roast long enough? Perhaps, but they still could have used some kick to the flavor.) Based on reviews here, I next tried the salmon in creamy lemon sauce, billed as having a remarkably rich and creamy taste. It was average at best; the sauce was thin and the flavor one-dimensional. At this point, I actually printed out an Amazon lable to send the book back. However, I had tagged one last recipe to try--the oatmeal pancakes. These were dynamite! I had tried some VERY expensive lo-carb pancake mixes that yielded odd little things that tasted like bad synthetic omelets, and had sort of resigned myself to no pancakes. But the oatmeal pancakes recipe here? Beautiful cakes, fabulous flavor, good texture. I made a whole recipe, ate 3, and put the rest in a bag in the frig. Then every morning, I popped some in the toaster oven, where they heated up beautifully. Re-inspired, I went back to the cookbook and made escarole with white beans. Another hit! Tonight I will try the salmon with 5-spice seasoning and lime juice, and see how that is. I think now that I will keep the book, and see what other jewels I can come up with.

I got this used like new and it came in MINT condition for just over $9 and free prime shipping. This is for the hard cover book, it is larger than most books which I like as it is easily accessed from the kitchen counter reader. I tried using the digital editions but found it too cumbersome and had to print out a lot of information wasting ink, thus wasting a lot of money.

I highly recommend and do suggest you look at the used like new books, mine looks brand new and saved me over $10.00.

I hope this helps, Cheers and Vidimo Se!

I have a number of diet cookbooks, but this is one of my absolute favorites that has stood the test of time. The recipes are so delicious that I''ve served them to guests and had them express surprise that they are healthy. I especially appreciate the chapter on vegetarian entrees as I''m a "flexitarian" who tries to eat meatless several times per week. I''ve also had success adapting many of the entrees calling for red meat (which I don''t eat at home) to use poultry instead.

Highly recommended!
