http://www.ivillage.com/ivillage/chat/singlechat/0,,589544,00.html

Now you, too, can join the ranks of the fit and fabulous with The South

Beach Diet! For years, cardiologist Arthur Agatston, M.D., urged his

patients to lose weight for the sake of their hearts, but every diet was too

hard to follow or its restrictions were too harsh. So Dr. Agatston developed

his own. The South Beach Diet isn't complicated and doesn't require that you

go hungry. Dr. Agatston's diet has produced consistently dramatic results

and has become a media sensation in South Florida. Join Dr. Agatston to

discuss The South Beach Diet and learn how to look and feel better!

**Think Yourself Thin

Join a dedicated group of women at various stages of losing weight and

getting healthy. Our members have come to the realization that diet and

exercise aren't always the complete answer. Share and explore emotional

reasons behind the struggle with weight issues.
