Published in January 2004, The South Beach Diet Good Fats/Good Carbs Guide has sold more than three million copies and has continuously topped national bestseller lists. An essential tool for success, the completely revised and updated guide will feature a new, more user-friendly format and an expanded list of foods, as well as the most up-to-the-minute new information on nutrition and healthy eating to aid the now millions of early adopters.
The new edition will include: o An expanded nutritional breakdown: total carbs and net carbs, total fat and saturated fat, fiber, and sugar. o More food listings including meal replacement bars, other convenience foods, healthy fast-food menu items, and beverages. o FAQs organized by phase and designed to answer dieters’ most common questions. o A foreword by Dr. Agatston detailing new research and outlining the changes to the diet. o Each food listing will now have a recommendation by phase. For example, bananas might be a food to avoid in the first 2 weeks of Phase One but will be a food to enjoy in Phase Two.

1 Star the South Beach Diet Good Fats/Good Carbs Guide
I can not review this guide because it was not what I was looking for so I returned the book.
5 Stars my reference
Excellent reference for choosing the healthiest foods for your body, is completely revised and includes food not in the first book. For anyone seriously considering eating healthy and at the same time losing weight, this is your bible, to be read often. The Doctor who created this diet and reference book took in consideration, the heart patients and diebetics. I have been on this diet for 5 months, and have gone through a complete lifestyle change. I recommend this book to anyone, who will take the time to write a list of foods they enjoy from the list and then proceed to buy and implement them. You will benefit greatly from the purchase of this book.

3 Stars Not really necessary
I’m not sure this book is really necessary for the South Beach Dieter. It is a list broken up by categories of foods and whether they are ‘beachy’ and what phase of the diet they are allowed on. You can find all this information on the website if you subscribe or in the South Beach Diet book. That said, it is certainly thorough and small enough to be convenient to take with you if you need reminders of “allowable foods”.
