There are many diets on the market these days and most people have tried more than one. The Zone Diet has been around for a number of years and is still being chosen by those looking to lose weight and improve their health.

History of the Zone diet

The Zone diet was designed by Barry Sears, a former biochemist at M.I.T. He says that the problem with our lives revolves around eating habits. If we were to eat in “the Zone” we would be healthier, not have to contend with obesity and live a longer, more meaningful life.

His principle is based on the “40-30-30” rule of eating. Your body needs a moderate amount of protein, more carbohydrates and some healthy fat at every meal. Eating foods in strict proportions makes you feel better and reduces future disease processes from entering your body.

How it works

The Zone diet claims to be different from other diet plans out there because it doesn’t advocate one food group over the others. Diets that limit or eliminate a particular food group miss the point of proper body nutrition. The human body needs all types of foods to survive and thrive.
