With more than 19 million copies in print worldwide, the best-selling phenomenon continues with fabulous all new recipes for healthy, delicious
South Beach Diet-friendly entertaining
The famed Miami Beach cardiologist who has helped millions of people worldwide to lose weight and eat healthier with his best-selling South Beach Diet books now addresses the special challenge that can undermine anyone’s willpower—the irresistible lure of diet-busting dishes at festive occasions.
As the more than 20 menus and 150 easy, all-new recipes in this cookbook prove, there’s no need to give up favorite holiday and party dishes to stay on the South Beach Diet. Dr. Agatston explains that healthy entertaining is not a matter of deprivation, but of “simply making as many good choices as possible.” His new book provides those choices, putting a healthy twist on favorite entertaining meals for every occasion, whether it’s a family Christimas Eve dinner, a Thanksgiving feast, a Passover seder, a football fest in front of the TV, or a backyard barbeque with the neighbors. Readers will also find:
• practical tips and helpful (and healthful) hints throughout—including make-ahead suggestions, ideas for nonalcoholic cocktails (mocktails), ways to use leftovers, and more
• 55 full-page color photographs that illustrate the finished dishes along with ideas for stylish table settings and centerpieces
4 Stars SB 1

5 Stars Great South Beach Recipes!
So great to have this! I have all kinds of great recipes for the holidays, without breaking South Beach!
3 Stars Pretty Good
This is a pretty good book for party recipes. However, I was disappointed that there weren’t as many as I thought there would be; and some look almost repeated from earlier books in series, or else reproduced in later books. I don’t know if they were or not. But they seem to be.
3 Stars Overpriced at Amazon….available elsewhere for much less!
I thought I was getting a hard copy of the book and was willing to pay the price at Amazon ($16.50) for it. When it came, it was a paperback! I had already seen the paperback at The Christmas Tree Shop in Cherry Hill, NJ, for $3.99!! I should have bought the cookbook there!! It would have been easier and much cheaper! Had it been the other way around, it would have much easier to return as well!
2 Stars Just OK
It has some recipes that are nice but I was hoping for more exciting ideas.
