South Beach even in Phase I isn't carbless, and there's no "law" that you can't skip Phase I and go directly to Phase II (which my doctor recommended for hubby and to a lesser degree me, because we're on blood sugar lowering meds - since hubby's on insulin it's more important that he reduce his carbs too low).
I have a number of whole-food cookbooks on my wish-list at amazon.com (after reading the reviews) and have been working my way through the list (ordering from my library, and then deciding whether I'm going to buy them).
So far, I can only vouch for the first one (I liked it, and have added it to my "to buy" list).
