The South Beach Heart Program

The South Beach Heart Program: Main Image

Why Do People Follow This Diet?

The South Beach Heart Program is specifically designed to prevent heart disease and stroke, two of the most common causes of death and disability in the Western world.

What Do the Advocates Say?

Agatson, a cardiologist, says that the medical profession is oriented towards invasive treatment of existing heart disease rather than preventing the disease in the first place. He believes that certain noninvasive techniques for evaluating heart disease risk are underused by the medical profession, and that addressing risks identified by those diagnostic techniques using South Beach diet principles, regular aerobic and core-strengthening exercise, and use of medications as necessary will reduce the need for invasive procedures such as angioplasty and bypass surgery. Agatson terms this approach “aggressive prevention” and claims he has seen vast reductions in the number of heart attacks and referrals for heart surgery in his own medical practice as a result of this approach.

What Do the Critics Say?

So far, there has been no significant critical evaluation of the South Beach Heart Program. Critics of other diet and lifestyle programs say that they are often difficult for people to adhere to. Critics of the newer noninvasive tests such as those recommended by this program, say they are expensive and have not been adequately tested for reliability.
