Good Fats/Good Carbs
By P. Hayes - March 21, 2006
This is a great book to carry with you all the time. It summarizes the diet and gives a handy reference to what foods you can eat for each phase of the diet. I keep this in my purse all the time. I'm now in the 4th week of the diet and have lost 12 pounds. I'm never hungry and feel better than I have for years. The book and diet are easy to follow.

Next, an outline of how to use the Food Guide. Then the food guide itself. Easy to read, and use. This guide is a must for anyone on the South Beach Diet. And, even if you aren't, but watching your fats and carbs, it's amazingly useful. I am having greater success, and much less stress adapting to this healthy lifestyle, thanks to this guide.
