Developed by Arthur Agatston, a cardiologist, and dietitian marie Almon, the South Beach Diet was a response to the low-fat diets being recommended for heart health. This diet is based on the idea that hunger cycles are triggered by eating "bad carbohydrates," which create blood sugar spikes. Bad carbs are replaced with good carbs (foods that have a low glycemic index) and bad fats (trans-fats and saturated fats) are replaced with good fats, such as unsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids. Several books and a cookbook are available detailing the diet. Kraft Foods produces a line of South Beach Diet foods.
