Dr. Arthur Agatston, leading preventive cardiologist and author of The South Beach Diet®, says, “I know that achieving optimal health and maintaining a sensible body

weight involves two key components: following a healthy eating plan and getting regular exercise.

I brought my patients — and you — a delicious eating plan made up of fiber-rich, nutrient-dense foods, like poultry, fish, lean red meats, and fruits and vegetables, as well as beans and whole grains. That was more than a decade ago, but the overwhelmingly positive response endures because it’s easy to follow, beneficial to your health, and fits seamlessly into your life so you can follow it forever. And that means you don’t just lose weight, you keep it off.”

Eating right and exercising go hand in hand. People who eat well feel better and exercise better — and vice versa. That’s why I developed the South Beach Fitness Club with my personal Pilates trainer. The regimen (with two basic levels) consists of an easy, yet comprehensive two-part functional fitness plan that can be done anytime, anywhere, and it doesn’t require any special equipment.

The first part of the program is a fun and varied walking routine to get your heart pumping and your blood flowing.

  • The second part of the workout emphasizes strengthening the core muscles (your abdomen, lower back, pelvis, and hips). Training these muscles improves your ability to function in the real world, whether that involves lifting a child, carrying groceries, or running to catch a bus.

Best of all, this plan will help keep you injury free — and that’s the key to staying active and living a longer, happier, healthier life.
