Default The South Beach Diet Just Announced A New Keto-Friendly Program For 2019

The South Beach Diet Just Announced A New Keto-Friendly Program For 2019

“Our goal is to make a keto-friendly lifestyle approachable.”

As if you needed even more proof that the keto diet is literally everywhere, the South Beach Diet just announced that they'll be offering a keto-friendly program starting in 2019.

The keto-friendly version is “designed to be a low-carb, high-fat dietary pattern consistent with a keto diet," according to a press release from Nutrisystem (which owns the South Beach diet). The program was “inspired by the growing trend toward health-conscious consumers pursuing keto lifestyle and products, which have been associated with health benefits, weight loss, and performance.”

Under the new program, South Beach fans can take the standard diet and “make it more keto,” the release says. South Beach's current diet is broken up into three phases:

Phase one requires you to eliminate nearly all carbs for two weeks.

Phase two allows you to slowly reduce foods like whole grains until you reach your goal weight.

Phase three is all about maintenance.

While South Beach hasn't gone into specifics about what the new keto plan will offer, they did reveal a new keto-friendly South Beach Simply Fit shake. According to the press release, the shakes have three grams of net carbs, along with potassium, magnesium, calcium, and MCT oil.

The South Beach Diet app—which offers up recipes and diet tips—will also support the program's keto-friendly option by delivering recipes, tips, and other keto content from South Beach's blog, The Palm, per the release.

Overall, the South Beach Diet's new keto program aims to make the keto diet a little more accessible for those who are interested in trying it. "Our goal is to make a keto-friendly lifestyle approachable for consumers who are looking for a place to start," said Courtney McCormick, the South Beach Diet's manager of clinical research and nutrition in the news release. "Our customers will see successful results on this low-carb keto-friendly program in a simple and safe way."

The keto-friendly South Beach Diet program is slated to launch in 2019—but the tried-and-true versions of the South Beach Diet will remain on the program list too (South Beach also increased its regular menu for 2019 too, offering 24 new foods; the diet also newly banned 71 ingredients—like artificial flavors and colors—from its menu).

That is interesting. I’ve been meaning to post the recent news that NutriSystem is being purchased by Tivity Health. Tivity already owns South Beach and Silver Sneakers.

Immediate reaction from the market wasn’t positive with Nutrisystem soaring up but Tivity going down 30% the first trading day. It is still bumping along near its 52 week low. It is a big acquisition for Trivity, the relative sizes hard to integrate, though I tend to think these packaged diet foods are all suffering with the Keto emphasis on real food.

To copy from the other article you posted today on the Paleo Diet...

Back to Basics

Part of the appeal of the paleo diet is how simple it is, especially compared to the complex food products and drinks we’re used to consuming. One look at a nutritional label can be overwhelming to the average consumer; there are probably dozens of ingredients that are hard to recognize, including complex chemical formulas that the average consumer doesn’t understand.
It’s illogical to assume that a chemical compound is dangerous simply because it has a complex name, but the average consumer isn’t looking for a complete, logical, scientific understanding of the world. Instead, they trust their intuitions—and their intuitions tell them that a piece of meat, or a fruit plucked straight from a tree is automatically healthier than something that was created in a factory. They can even use anecdotal and correlational evidence to support this; after all, the obesity epidemic is a product of the modern world, and not something Paleolithic humans had to deal with.

The people for whom the Paleo diet has the appeal of simple real foods, have that same view about Keto. A steak and salad works, no exogenous ketones or complicated Keto Recipes necessary. I believe they will look at a frozen SB Keto meal and will see a bunch of funky ingredients but not enough beef.
