AKA Arthur S. Agatston
Birthplace: New York City
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Nationality: United States
Executive summary: The South Beach Diet
A Miami-area cardiologist, his book The South Beach Diet has sold over five million copies. It is a low carb diet but more carbs than the Atkins Diet and more protein as well. The book has been so successful that his attorney-wife Sari has switched to managing the business of selling the book.
Recently beer companies have begun an advertising campaign against him, claiming that his statements about sugar in beer are in error. The commercials claim "beer does not contain sugar and is part of a low-carb diet." Agatston insists he is telling the truth, that indeed beer contains the sugar maltose. Sugar or no sugar, beer makes you fat.
