I’m trying to really prioritize my health this year, so of course, my resolution is to be on track with @southbeachdiet. They went keto-friendly this year and I am loving it so far – it’s low carbs, and healthy fats. I’m finding it’s easy for me to stick with it because there’s so much flexibility and more food options. You can try the new keto-friendly @southbeachdiet with me! – source

Bachelor in Paradise star Ashley Iaconetti is proud to endorse the South Beach Diet to her million+ Instagram followers.
There are also a number of celebrities who followed the South Beach Diet for some time in the past. Most of these celebrities and famous people probably followed South Beach in the mid-2000s when the South Beach Diet book was at peak-popularity. (as opposed to the current meal-delivery diet)
6. Nicole Kidman (Celebrity & Actress)
Although actress and celebrity Nicole Kidman is not a spokesperson for The South Beach Diet, she has reportedly been on it for some time to eat healthy and lose weight. source
7. Kim Cattrall (Celebrity & Actress)
The Sex and the City Star, Kim Cattrall, reportedly used the South Beach Diet for some time to stay in great shape. Apparently it’s not the only diet she’s tried as Kim once said, “I’ve been on a diet since 1974,” adding that, “I like to eat, and my body type is not naturally this thin, especially at this age. So I do watch what I eat and drink but I’m not obsessive — it’s just a way of life.” – Source

9. President Bill Clinton & Hillary Clinton
Bill Clinton has struggled with his weight his whole life. In 2004 he reported losing 35 pounds on The South Beach Diet eating a healthy diet of good carbs and good fats. Of course, that was when The South Beach Diet was based on a book and didn’t have a meal-delivery option.
In an interview with New York Magazine, Clinton claimed that his wife, Hillary, and “all his Hollywood friends” were converts to the South Beach Diet. source
10. Oprah Winfrey (Celebrity, Media Mogul)
Years before Oprah was a spokesperson for Weight Watchers she reportedly lost weight on The South Beach Diet. Seems like it was around 2004 when South Beach exploded in popularity and celebrities like Bill Clinton followed the diet. As a large shareholder of WW (Weight Watchers) stock, Oprah certainly wouldn’t endorse The South Beach Diet now! source
