For years, cardiologist Arthur Agatston, M.D., urged his patients to lose weight for the sake of their hearts, but often diets were too hard to follow, too restrictive, or downright dangerous. So, he developed his own-the South Beach Diet. The South Beach Diet has produced consistently dramatic results and has become a media sensation: The South Beach Diet book hit No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list and has remained a fixture on the list for forty weeks and counting. The South Beach Diet 2005 Calendar is based on that best-selling book and includes facts, tips, recipes, and personal success stories. This calendar will encourage and inform those already dedicated to the South Beach Diet as well as those looking to begin a healthy lifestyle.
