Its creator, cardiologist Arthur Agatston has revised the diet several times since the initial book in Some of the most significant changes have been in whether dairy products are allowed and which types of dairy products are recommended. In the original plan, only small amounts of fat-free or nonfat milk were allowed. The diet aims to reduced saturated fat consumption rather than eliminating fats. Because whole milk and cream contain saturated fat, the original South Beach Diet restricted you to reduced-fat milk products. Most forms of cheese are high in saturated fat and their amounts were restricted on this diet. This advice was further changed over a decade later when research showed that full-fat dairy products showed protective rather than detrimental effects on blood cholesterol and lipids.
