When renowned cardiologist Arthur Agatston, M.D., set out to develop a safe diet for his overweight heart patients in south Florida, he didn't expect to become a national media sensation. Now, millions of people have lost weight on the delicious, doctor-designed, foolproof plan for fast and healthy weight loss, and The South Beach Diet has become a cultural phenomenon: After twenty-eight printings, The South Beach Diet book has 7.6 million copies in print and has remained on the New York Times best-seller list for more than eighty-two weeks and counting. The South Beach Diet Calendar, based on that best-selling book, is being reissued for 2006. The calendar follows the three phases of the diet and also includes recipes and personal success stories. This calendar will inform and encourage anyone who wants to look, feel, and live better.
