My understanding is that Dr Agatston devised South Beach as a program to treat heart disease in the first place. Have you tried Googling it? There might also be info on The South Beach website.

Whoops! Just Googled it myself and it looks like a new plan - book out in 2007.

I have the book, new, just sitting on my bookshelf. I'd be happy to mail it to you. PM me, if you'd like it.

I've read the book. Explains a lot of the reasons for heart problems, understanding triglyerides, cholesterol, etc. & why the SB diet is helpful. I found it very informative.

Thanks all, I was out on some errands and popped into the library and they had the book. So, I picked it up to read. I glanced at the foods, its the same as in his other books. Just have to read all about the heart and stroke aspect of it.
