That South Beach Diet does work is proven by the success stories of many dieters. For example, someone states that her total cholesterol level dropped from 253 to 199 being on South Beach diet.
The blood sugar control test (A1C) of another person decreased after two months of South Beach Diet from 14.4 to 9.7.
A very good effect was also registered with blood pressure: persons who had a history of really high blood pressure improved it only after 6 months of diet, obtaining normal results at BP analysis, and no longer needed medication.
Another South Beach diet success story is that of a woman of 5 feet 4 inches and 255 pounds who reached 134 pounds in a few months'time. Her triglyceride level had a remarkable lowering from 270 to 98.
