The Miraculous Claims of the Zone Diet

Written by Iulia Pascanu

Continued from page 1

I really want to believe Zone can be that magic recipe that can help me live a longer and healthier life, without too much effort. But I expected some scientific proof for all these promises. And what did I find instead? Some stories about people who successfully solved their problems by following Zone diet, and their everlasting gratitude to diet guru Barry Sears! I'm sorry, but I'm not buying that.

Of course, there are some good aspects ofrepparttar Zone diet. It promotes healthy eating standards and gives some common-sense advice. Somewhere, onrepparttar 131432 publishing road (more precisely with "Omega RX Zone --- The miracle of high-dose fish oil"), Dr. Sears advises us not to make any radical change in our dietary program without consulting a trained physician.

But I think there are still many things that need to be proven inrepparttar 131433 Zone. If it really does workrepparttar 131434 way it promises, mankind should go beyond such problems as illness.

4. Steer away from unhealthy fats and highly processed carbs when you eat out. This is nothing new, don’t eat those fries with that burger. But I have two very good reasons for saying this. If you successfully navigate your way away from these two – you will be doing a lot for keeping bad cholesterol levels at bay and staving off accidental over-consumption of calories. 5. Go for raw. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing thatrepparttar food you’ve just eaten is burning calories even as you sit atrepparttar 131430 café talking with friends. It’s even confidence building to know that you have a healthy diet. The food that will do this is quite often raw and are adorned with fat burning principles because they have low energy density (as described above). So step back from those fries, and consider that there are plenty of satisfying, tasty and healthy alternatives when snacking or dining out. Instituting these healthy diet principles will mean that your social life and weight loss goals are not an either / or situation.
