Get in the Zone with the Zone Diet
What is The Zone Diet?
Now this diet is most like the diet I invented in the early 70′s, except that the Zone Diet is loosely considered a low carb diet because it is lower in carbs than most traditional diets and it does help the body burn fat more easily. Sears had a broader purpose in mind when he developed the Zone Diet however, he was looking to use food as medicine. According to Dr. Barry Sears eating your foods in the 40/30/30 ratio will actually balance your hormones and provide greater health and improve athletic performance. If you read his book, you will see many impressive trials where athletic performance with increased using the zone.
There have been many successes, and a lot of people swear by the diet. Most of the diets critics are critical because the diet is difficult to follow, and not because of its ineffectiveness. I however, was impressed with how simple Dr. Sears made the diet. Remember, that many years before I had invented a somewhat similar diet with far less noble purposes, and people found that impossible to follow. Here uses techniques like, “make a fist”, in order to determine the size of the meat portion. He looks for approximation not precision, which makes his diet quite user-friendly. If however you get into precision in trying to keep the proportions of the fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in the exact ratios, you will go crazy.
Nutritionist Gives Her Experiences With The Diet
Among the successes, the greatest has to be a man named Uribe, who lost nearly 1000 pounds using the zone diet and the assistance of doctors. Many celebrities have done the diet, but then again, celebrities are always doing diets. Below is a video of what a nutritionist has to say about the diet.
You might note, that the nutritionist and I share the same viewpoint about a perfect diet for everyone, but the zone diet is designed to be a very healthy diet that could be followed for the rest of your life. It’s drawbacks of course include having to plan each meal so that you get 40% carbohydrates, 30% protein, and 30% fat, and also there is the fact that the amount of calories you consume in one meal is limited but it isn’t terribly low, and you can always eat several meals in one day.
