You knew this was coming, especially with all the weight people are putting on around the holidays. Rabbi Morris Allen of Mendota Heights wanted to shed some pounds, so he started the South Beach diet and made it kosher. Turns out it worked for him and he shed quite a few pounds. Now apparently, this is a pretty popular low-carb diet. Funny, some of us Jmericans live in Miami and we thought the South Beach diet was cocaine and Power Bars. You learn something new everyday. The picture is from the website of one of our favorite Boston eateries, Zaftig’s.
