The Zone Diet
Many A-list celebrities have ‘entered’ The Zone to keep their famous figures! What exactly is The Zone Diet?
The Zone Diet works by closely regulating blood sugar levels, keeping our blood sugar in a tight ‘zone’ that helps to burn fat efficiently. To achieve this, you need to maintain a certain ratio of carbs to proteins to fats every time you eat a meal. On the surface, it appears to be very similar to any other low carb diet, but having tried it for a few weeks, there is a difference.
For me that difference is simplicity! I was a science major and I had trouble with this one. You get ‘Zone Food Blocks’ where each block contains a standard amount of protein, carb and fat. You get a certain number of blocks to use up for meals and snacks.
First you need to figure out how many blocks you get based on a few factors, then you need to plan out meals that contain those blocks. You really need the book. Or if money is no object, you can get Zone meals delivered to your door!
