Created by Dr.Barry Sears, the Zone Diet is not just a diet, it's a way of life! With an emphasis on reducing cellular inflammation and losing body fat, the Zone Diet provides a wellness program just for you and your needs. Cellular inflammation is the cause of weight gain, as well as a contributor to chronic disease. In fact, more than 90% of Americans are living with high levels of cellular inflammation! While there are no drugs to cure cellular inflammation, with the proper diet, these effects can be significantly reduced.
So how does the Zone diet work to reduce cellular inflammation? The Zone Diet works to reduce this inflammation by maintaining the inflammatory hormones that are generated by food. With the Zone Diet, you are eating the right combination of foods to combat high levels of inflammatory hormones. The Zone Diet works by taking a meal and and dividing it up into 1/3 of the food on your plate being low-fat protein and the other 2/3 of your plate's contents being color carbohydrates (vegetables and fruit). The Zone Diet also recommends you add a small amount of fat that is low in omega 6 and saturated fats, such as olive oil.
Bland food is not an option with the Zone Diet! There are so many great products to choose from in your journey to a healthier lifestyle. The Zone Diet makes it easy with a range of foods, snacks, shakes, bars, supplements, and more to get you started! You can also find plenty of recipes through their website here. Right now the Zone Diet is offering a special 2012 New Years offer with free FedEx home delivery on all ZoneDiet.com orders through January 31st.
Thanks to the great folks behind the Zone Diet, I was able to review and enjoy a two weeks delivery of Zone Diet foods. I was amazed at all the options I received! One thing I liked about the Zone Diet right off the bat is that I can enjoy my carbs and still lose weight. They also have the tastiest cookies and bars for a diet I have ever tried. No joke! My two favorites were the Strawberry Nougat Bars and the Cinnamon Buns.
Another thing I love about the Zone Diet is that the foods help satisfy hunger. I am now eating smaller portions, but getting the same fullness from the size of portions I used to eat. The weight loss truly does happen! Combining the Zone Diet with my new 5 day a week exercise routine, I have lost 5 pounds in the last week and a half! While it may seem like a small start, it's a start! If you want to enjoy eating foods you love, while still being able to kick those extra pounds, I would definitely recommend you check out the Zone Diet.
