to The Beach.
The most important book to have is the South Beach Diet Book which helps you understand the theory behind this lifestyle. The Guide is handy to have and the newest one identifies the Phase for the food. The cookbooks are nice - I prefer the Quick and Easy one. However, there is a ton of good recipes in our Recipe section.
Once again, welcome to The Beach. Please join us in the daily chatter which isn't "daily" this extra long weekend.
