Don't get ZONED in
- 11 Months ago
The Zone Diet was developed by Barry Sears, a former researcher in biotechnology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology The basis for this diet is that if a person eats carbohydrates, protein, fat in the proportion (40:30:30), she will improve her health, weight and athletic performance, because certain hormones will be balanced and therefore in the preferred "zone".
The majority of carbohydrates are supposed to come from vegetables and fruits, with starches (such as bread, potatoes, rice and pasta) used sparingly as condiments. Proteins are to be eaten with every meal and at every snack. Another aspect is supplementation with high-dose fish oil.
