More About the Author

Arthur Agatston, MD
Leader in Cardiac Disease Prevention and Creator and Author of The South Beach Diet

Dr. Arthur Agatston is the Medical Director of Wellness and Prevention for Baptist Health South Florida. A pioneer in cardiac prevention, Dr. Agatston's work with Dr. Warren Janowitz resulted in the Agatston Score, a method of screening for coronary calcium as an indicator of atherosclerosis that is used at medical centers throughout the world and considered by most experts to be the best single predictor of a future heart attack. Dr. Agatston is a clinical professor of medicine at Florida International University Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine and an associate professor of medicine at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. His cardiology practice in Miami Beach is focused on preventing heart attacks in high-risk patients.

Dr. Agatston has published more than 100 scientific articles and abstracts in medical journals, including the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Circulation, the American Journal of Cardiology, and the Annals of Internal Medicine. Among his many television appearances, Dr. Agatston was featured along with President Bill Clinton on Sanjay Gupta's 2011 CNN special, "The Last Heart Attack." He is a frequent lecturer on diet, cardiac imaging, and the prevention of heart disease both nationally and internationally and participates as a speaker, faculty member, and organizer of numerous academic cardiology meetings and symposia. Dr. Agatston has also served as an expert consultant to the Clinical Trials Committee of the National Institutes of Health and has served on committees of the American Society of Echocardiography, the American College of Cardiology, and the Society of Atherosclerosis Imaging. He is currently on the board of directors of the Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE). In recognition of his contributions to cardiac prevention, the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) created the esteemed Arthur S. Agatston Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Award in 2011, which is given annually to pioneers in cardiac prevention. In 2009, Dr. Agatston received the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Award from New York University Medical Center for outstanding achievement in the medical profession.

In 1995, Dr. Agatston created his balanced approach to healthy eating to help his patients improve their blood chemistries and lose weight. His eating plan worked so well that a Miami TV station asked if it could offer the diet to its viewers. Hundreds of South Floridians went on the diet and lost weight three years running, and its popularity eventually led to the publication of Dr. Agatston's internationally bestselling book--his first nonacademic work--The South Beach Diet, in 2003. Today, the South Beach Diet is the trusted choice of millions seeking a total solution for losing weight, reversing metabolic syndrome, and gaining health. There are more than 23 million copies of The South Beach Diet and its companion books in print worldwide, including The South Beach Diet Cookbook (2004), The South Beach Diet Good Fats/Good Carbs Guide (2004), The South Beach Diet Quick & Easy Cookbook (2005), The South Beach Diet Dining Guide (2005), The South Beach Diet Parties & Holidays Cookbook (2006), The South Beach Diet Taste of Summer Cookbook (2007), The South Beach Heart Health Revolution (2008), The South Beach Diet Supercharged (2008), The South Beach Diet Super Quick Cookbook (2010), and The South Beach Wake-Up Call (2011). His most recent book, The South Beach Diet Gluten Solution, was published in April 2013.

The South Beach Diet lifestyle program has grown to include Web-based materials and a family of healthy and convenient foods, including delicious and nutritionally balanced bars and snacks. Its popular online program, SouthBeachDiet.com, provides weight loss tools, recipes, exercise routines, customized meal plans, support from registered dietitians, and a vibrant community of South Beach Diet followers.

In 2004, Dr. Agatston founded the nonprofit Agatston Research Foundation for the purpose of conducting and funding original research on diet, cardiac health, and disease prevention. The foundation is dedicated to improving the heart health and wellness of the nation through research, education, and prevention. In the fall of 2004, the foundation implemented the Healthier Options for Public Schoolchildren (HOPS) initiative to provide nutrition and healthy lifestyle education programming, including daily physical activity, to more than 50,000 elementary school children nationally. Data from the initiative, presented at national conferences, including those of the American College of Cardiology, the American Heart Association, the American Dietetic Association, and the American Academy of Pediatrics, and published in 2010 in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, show that children in HOPS schools improved their weights, blood pressures, and academic test scores more so than children in non-HOPS schools. Today the foundation is also working with the University of Pennsylvania on the Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative (AUNI) to further pursue better nutrition in public schools and with the Mayo Clinic, Johns Hopkins, and the University of Miami on research projects dedicated to developing healthier lifestyles and preventing cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Agatston also can be found on the Web at SouthBeachDiet.com and EverdayHealth.com, and he is an advisor on heart health for Prevention magazine. He lives in Miami Beach, Florida, with his wife, Sari. They have two grown sons.

I got this right before Thanksgiving, which I would be hosting for the first time, and the few recipes that I've tried turned out great! I served the stuffing, the green beans amadine, and the butternut squash, and they all went over quite well. My mom (who is really hard to please) enjoyed them all and commended me on serving such a healthy Thanksgiving meal. What I also like about this book are the many dessert recipes. I tried the ranger cookies today and MAN, are they good! Can't wait to try the cheesecake, and the pumpkin pie. Highly Recommended.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The South Beach Diet Parties and Holidays Cookbook is an excellent addition to your cookbook collection whether you are following the program or not.

The oversized soft cover book features 150 healthy recipes. It begins with a chapter on preparing for your special time. This chapter explains simple techniques to make your occasion go smoothly. The book is divided into 2 sections. The first section covers festive parties. 10 parties ranging from a Super Bowl Bash to a Baby Shower to a Tuscan Feast.

The second section includes Holidays throughout the year Mother's Day, Christmas Eve, and Valentine's Day for example. Each occasion includes a complete menu. The Family Buffet party menu includes such fare as dogs n' dips, asparagus and ham spears, baked chicken with artichokes, south beach waldorf salad, penne with homemade sauce and banana orange pops.

Each menu includes when to start preparing. For the Family Buffet, it is suggested you make and freeze your pasta sauce up to a month ahead, make and freeze the pops up to 5 days in advance etc.

The 242 page book also includes a conversion chart at the back and mouth watering photos of the different recipes. Each recipe gives prep time, ingredients, tips, and nutrition information calories, fat, saturated fat, protein, carbs and fiber. Make ahead info is also given which is a handy feature.

The recipes in the book can also be used as regular meal fare and if you are on the program, phase 1, 2 or 3 is listed for each recipe. They are easy to prepare with easy of find ingredients. Lot's of great recipes here! Delicious and nutritious!

This is a wonderful addition to the South Beach franchise. I have prepared several meals based on these recipes, especially the Thanksgiving menu, and everything was outstanding. My guests were surprized and delighted when I disclosed they were eating healthy! Keep these books coming!

19 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Man TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 9, 2006
Format: Paperback
Holidays. What a frightening moment for anyone who is livin' la vida low-carb! These special occasions are the one time that most people let their low-carb plan flail in the wind like a freshly plucked feather. Casting all your cares about your weight aside, you stuff your face with all the wrong kinds of food and then later regret that decision when you attempt to get back on track again.

Sound familiar anybody?

Well, enough already with the games we play around parties and holidays when we should be celebrating. How about an all-in-one low-carb resource guide to offer up some healthy low-carb recipes that are oh-so-yummy and delicious while packing a powerful nutritional punch as well? I think I've found it for you with "The South Beach Diet Parties and Holidays Cookbook: Healthy Recipes for Entertaining Family and Friends."

Don't let the bright red color of this sixth book in The South Beach Diet series fool you into thinking it's just for Christmas! While it certainly provides recipes that are perfect for Christmas Day, including a unique Wake-Up Breakfast menu as well as Christmas Dinner, all of the other major holidays feature low-carb recipes as well, including New Year's Day, Valentines Day Dinner For 2, Passover Seder, Easter Gathering, Cinco de Mayo Celebration, Mother's Day Luncheon, Fourth of July Revel, Thanksgiving, Hannukkah, and Christmas Eve Dinner.

I bought this book and made several of the recipes (as a practice run before the holidays) and must say that the recipes were easy and absolutely delicious. Two of my favorites are the Sweet Potato Rounds with Feta Cheese, and the Pumpkin Pie using whole wheat phyllo dough (which makes the look beautiful as well). Everyone I served it to loved it and no one suspected it was "diet" food. I definitely plan on making more items from this book for future get togethers. I will probably even give this book as a gift to certain foodie friends of mine.

The south Beach Diet Parties and Holidays Cookbook is a disappointment for me . There are some fairly good recipes , however many of the recipes could be found in any health oriented cookbook. I really was looking forward to having some innovative recipes for holiday treats that would carry me through the holidays without eating all the un-healthy goodies. There really isn't any one recipe that appealed to me as being special.This cookbook just didn't fit the bill for me .
