The South Beach Diet was developed by Dr. Arthur Agatston to aid weight loss & improve heart health. This diet contains 3 phases. It encourages you to add more high-fiber, low-glycemic index carbs, unsaturated fats, & lean proteins to your diet.
A poor diet that is low in dietary fiber and proteins and high in sugary food and trans fats can lead to belly fat. Lack of exercise, excessive drinking, smoking, and stress are also responsible for the accumulation of belly fat.
