The South Beach Diet Supercharged is based on the book called The South Beach Diet Supercharged: Faster Weight Loss and Better Health for Life, which is supposed to be the next level to the original South Beach Diet. It was created by Dr. Agatston, a cardiologist, and Dr. Signorile, an exercise physiologist, who worked together to try to create a diet that would suit the life of a person in today’s normal environment. That is, a person who has to eat on the go, eat in restaurants that might not have options that would suit a highly regimented diet, and learn to identify the right kinds of healthy foods by using their labels.

The South Beach Diet Supercharged does place a focus on eating reduced carbohydrate meals that are high in lean proteins, just as was the focus of the original diet. However, this version also goes on to describe the benefits of diets that are high in vegetables. The book provides its readers with several menu plans, a large number of recipes that suit those plans, and nutrition tips that help the dieter to properly practice the diet with as little frustration or inconvenience as possible. Overall, this diet is another low-carb diet which includes limitations on eating foods that are high in fats such as whole milk dairy.


The benefits of The South Beach Diet Supercharged are that it encourages the dieter to eat lots of vegetables and whole foods; which should be considered an important part of any healthy daily diet no matter whether it is to lose weight or maintain lost weight. Furthermore, exercise is a central part of this program, which should be included in any attempt to lose weight or maintain a healthy body. There are many handy tips that dieters can use when they are eating out at restaurants. Even the unique needs of people on vegetarian diets are considered by The South Beach Diet Supercharged.


The downside of The South Beach Diet Supercharged is that many of the food products recommended by this diet are prepackaged foods that have been manufactured and sold by the South Beach Diet company. These foods contain a large number of artificial ingredients and are often more expensive than a person’s typical grocery shopping. These foods may be too low in calories and carbohydrates; especially among the dieters who include a high amount of exercise into their routines.

The cost of The South Beach Diet Supercharged is $25.95 for the main book and an additional $20 for the DVD. These products are available from vendors all over the internet and in large chain bookstores. Some vendors do offer them at discounted prices; especially when both products are purchased together.

This diet is extremely hard to do and is time consuming. The shopping alone takes forever. I don’t think I’d ever get used to it.

Unfortunately all diets are hard work and take dedication to be successful. You would be hard pressed to find a diet that does not take some thought, care and planning. If there were such a thing we would all be skinny. I do like this diet for it’s encouragement of use of lots of fresh veggies and it gives you lots of tips for eating out.

You’re right about that. Every diet has its challenges. The whole reason that the weight is there in the first place is because the right habits haven’t been formed. So since you have to make new habits, you need to expect to do at least some work. The trick, I guess, is to be able to find the diet that is designed in a way that you can work it into your life and still get successful results. None of them will actually be easy, but at least some will be easier than others.

The South Beach Diet Supercharged seems more like marketing for its own food products than actually focused on helping you lose weight.

Ya it’s kinda true, I am not one for the pre packages stuff either. Would much rather eat fresh. I found if you stick to whole, real foods, and grocery shop regularly (ya I know not convenient) but at least you are not putting as much chemicals into your body.

It really is better if you do it all with whole foods instead of the packaged stuff

I found that this was a great book, but don’t get the electonic version for e-readers or kindle. I got it for the kindle and the fomat did not come out well at all. In regards to the actual diet, it did help me lose quite a bit of weight but I can’t stress enough how important the exersize component is. It was a real eye opener when I got to the section of the book that talked about how moderate amounts of walking (20 minutes every other day) with short intervals of fast movement spaced between moderate walking would do me more good for burning fat than doing all that walking that I used to do at one speed. Who would have thought I was wasting so much time before?

Thanks! That’s really good to know. I’ll get the print book version.

Even when you buy the book and the DVD – the entire kit of everything that is available – it’s really not all that much money. Especially if you get it for sale or if you compare it to the cost of one of the diets when you sign up and have to pay every month or whatever. I like that it’s pretty healthy, but it doesn’t starve you.
