What is the South Beach Diet?

South Beach Diet designs its plans to educate users on the best ways to keep weight off. Its meals are high on protein and good fats and avoid simple carbohydrates. The company encourages low-carb and high-fat foods to spark fat-burning metabolic change. All South Beach Diet plans include access to a tracking app and meal delivery program.

Each week, users have room for two DIY meals at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Dieters can make these meals at home following one of the South Beach Diet recipes or eat at a restaurant and order food that follows the low-carb, high-fat guidelines.

The company designed the South Beach Diet to provide nutritious meals with simple preparation requirements. The low-carb recipes use methods similar to ketogenic diets to burn fat. The South Beach Diet food list includes white bean chicken chili, Margherita pizza and chicken breast stuffed with artichoke and spinach. The company doesn’t use any artificial sweeteners or flavors in its meals.

How does the South Beach Diet work?

The South Beach Diet is divided into two phases.

  • Phase 1 concentrates on burning fat instead of carbs in the first week.
  • Phase 2 includes some carbs and fats that continue weight loss.

The South Beach Diet includes about 50 grams of net carbs per day — it is low-carb, not ketogenic. You do not maintain ketosis, which is when the body only burns fat instead of carbohydrates.

South Beach Diet costs

Depending on which plan you choose, the South Beach Diet costs about $9 to $15 per day.

How to start South Beach Diet

Starting the South Beach Diet is as easy as going to the company’s website and answering a few questions to get matched with the best plan. Once you choose a plan, you have the option to customize it before making a payment.

In each plan, Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet involves the 1-Week Body Reboot, which helps you start a low-carb routine. This means removing starches, sugar, alcohol, fruits and high-fat meats. The intention of Phase 1 is to begin burning fat instead of carbs. You can choose meals from an available menu or use the Chef’s Pick option to have the company select meals for you. The Chef’s Pick is recommended for first-time users so they can sample a variety of foods.

This was way too proprietary and expensive. The prescriptive meal plan was way too inflexible. The foods themselves were nothing to write home about and all of the ingredients and chemicals in them wreaked havoc on my digestive system. I lost weight only because I didn't stray from the diet but I also found the food so unappetizing that I would not finish the meals.
