The South Beach Wake-Up Call: Why America is Still Getting Fatter and Sicker Plus 7 Simple Strategies for Reversing Our Toxic Lifestyle

Arthur Agatston, M.D. . Rodale, $27.99 (352p) ISBN 978-1-60529-332-5
Rather than writing a sequel touting his best-selling book, The South Beach Diet, cardiologist Agatston addresses additional facets of Americans' unhealthy lifestyles. Readers will recognize many of the foibles discussed here: sloppy food shopping, shortchanging sleep, and casual parenting among them. Plenty of stats support Agatston's contentions and colorful warnings abound: "Medical advances are showing us that our vessels and organs are rusting in a manner similar to a poorly maintained vehicle." Agatston offers testimonials from those winning the health battles and presents a riveting chapter on gluten that serves as a veritable expose on unrefined grains. The latter part of the book provides strategies to reverse a toxic lifestyle, a master shopping list for a healthy diet, and a number of recipes—some delicious, some not so much. (Sept.)
