If you're following a healthy eating plan, what you drink is just as important as what you eat. And on the South Beach Diet, certain high-calorie beverages (like sugary sodas and fruit juices) can be diet busters. But what about alcoholic beverages like wine and beer?

The South Beach Diet has always been a fiber-rich plan, designed to encourage eating plenty of legumes, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. Why the emphasis on fiber? A high-fiber diet can help normalize your blood-sugar levels, improve your cholesterol, regulate your bowel function, and help keep you from feeling hungry, which aids in weight loss.
