From Dr. Arthur Agatston, creator of the South Beach Diet comes an urgent message: We need to wake up to the reality of just how fat and sick we are as a nation.

Statistics don't lie: In the past 30 years Americans have become heavier and unhealthier than at any time in our history. Yet while most of us recognize the devastating toll this is taking on our lives-compromising our productivity, our self-esteem, our energy, and ultimately our very longevity-we seem stuck in the sedentary, fast-food lifestyle that got us here in the first place.

But there is hope. In The South Beach Wake-Up Call , Dr. Agatston sheds light on the root causes of our current health crisis and also offers clear, actionable advice for addressing and reversing this growing problem. He explains how inflammation brought on by our toxic lifestyle is destroying the body's ability to heal and repair itself, and causing our tissues and organs to "rust," or grow old before their time. He shows why losing that belly fat is far more than just a matter of regaining your "bikini body," and how lack of sleep and inadequate exercise can rob you of years of vigorous good health. He also takes a close look at the American diet and what should (and shouldn't) be on the menu and exposes the real cost of eating out and consuming "cheap" fast food.

With a section of brand-new recipes created to maximize your intake of "Megafoods"- those foods packed with anti-aging antioxidants and dense with nutrients, not calories-plus meal plans and an easy-to-follow fitness routine for increasing both core strength and cardiovascular health, The South Beach Wake-Up Call is an essential prescription for anyone ready for a life-enhancing approach to diet and good health.

The book features:

- The South Beach Wake-Up Program: 7 simple, sustainable strategies for age-reversing, life-saving weight loss and optimal health
- The South Beach Gluten Solution to combat the potential harm that gluten-containing foods can have on sensitive individuals, including gastrointestinal problems, skin rashes, metabolic disorders, and a host of autoimmune conditions
- The Wake Up and Move 2-Week Quick Start Plan, an exercise program combining both cardio and core conditioning
- 15 MegaFoods for Healthy Eating, how to buy healthy food on a budget, how to snack strategically, and 32 all-new recipes from breakfasts to desserts using MegaFood
- Stories from real-life "Super Moms" who are fighting back and taking control of their families' health, plus tips for parents throughout Distributed by Syndetic Solutions, Inc.
Publishers Weekly Review
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.

Library Journal Review
Agatston, author of The South Beach Diet and its sequels, here discusses the severe health problems that American eating habits are creating in both adults and children. To prevent or resolve these problems, he suggests ways of making the South Beach plan part of a whole family lifestyle. He recommends homemade meals eaten together around a table and consisting of lots of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in addition to lean protein. He also strongly advises the purchase of organic foods whenever possible. A good, solid approach to health management for the whole family. (c) Copyright 2011.

Summary "From the creator of the South Beach Diet comes a call to change the fast-food, sedentary way of life that's aging us quickly and killing us slowly. There is a proverbial ticking time bomb in our midst. Its the toxic lifestyle that is wreaking havoc on our nations health and well-being and posing an equal threat to everyone from the very young to the very old. In todays fast-food-obsessed, couch-potato culture, two-thirds of all adults and one-third of all children are either overweight or obese, rates of diabetes and heart disease are soaring, and the future for many of us looks dismal. The time for a transformation is now, and one of the leading agents of change is renowned cardiologist and creator of the South Beach Diet Dr. Arthur Agatston, who is determined to reverse America's failing health profile. After explaining how we got to this sorry state, Dr. Agatston introduces his Toxic Turnaround. This empowering program provides realistic strategies and tools everyone can use to shop, cook, eat, and exercise better-- improving the family table, getting quality sleep, reducing stress, and making our homes and communities healthier. Informed by cutting-edge research and the tenets of a diet that has already changed the way America eats, this book goes to the next level, providing a blueprint for all Americans to make positive and sustainable lifestyle changes that will not only improve their own health but that of generations to follow. As a bonus, The South Beach Wake-Up Call includes 30 new, easy-to-prepare recipes featuring Dr. Agatstons' top "mega foods" for better health"-- Provided by publisher.
