Zone Diet Review

by : Christine Patterson

The Zone Diet is based on the theory of 40/30/30 -- which means that 40% of calories should be from carbs, 30% from protein, and 30% from fats. This program was created by Barry Sears, and a well known book was published about this diet called "Enter the Zone".

So when a dieter eats a meal which is "40/30/30" -- then it's referred to as a "Zone Favorable" meal.

The author of the Zone Program (Barry Sears) claims that if you make all meals "Zone Favorable" then your body will have reduced insulin levels, which will lead to weight loss and fat burning.

However, I do not agree that eating a 40/30/30 meal (Zone Favorable meal) is the best way to reduce insulin levels.

Also, another thing to remember is that it can be difficult to follow the Zone Diet because everything must be calculated "precisely" at every meal (and most people will find such calculations very tedious, especially people with busy schedules).

I believe that average dieters may find this program too difficult to use for any serious length of time, and therefore I do not like the Zone Diet program.

The makers of this diet have even created their own line of Zone Favorable Food products (such as Zone bars, Zone Shakes, and other Zone products for dieters).

But of course, such products cost much more than "average food" costs... so many average dieters may discover that buying such products is not economical for them. This is yet one more reason why I would not recommend using this program.
