The Omega Zone Diet and Fish Oil

Is high-dose fish oilrepparttar magic pill? Dr. Barry

Sears claims that Zone diet, combined with daily supplements of high-dose fish oil ("pharmaceutical grade"), antioxidants and

vitamins isrepparttar 131434 passport to a long, healthy and successful life.

The Omega Zone

Diet and specialists' opinion

"Omega RX Zone - The Miracle of High-dose Fish Oil" is consideredrepparttar 131435 best contribution that Dr. Barry Sears has yet made

to a healthy diet. The benefits of fish oil are well-known. Species such as mackerel, lake trout,

herring, sardines, albacore tuna and salmon are rich in two kinds of Omega 3 fatty acids:

eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). These fatty acids have had proven beneficial effects in

complaints such as arrhythmia, high triglyceride levels, atherosclerotic plaque and high blood pressure.

The recommendations ofrepparttar 131436 American Heart Association meet Dr. Sears' up to a point

  • Bothrepparttar 131437 AHA and Dr. Sears recogniserepparttar 131438 benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids.
  • Both parties tell us that fish is nowadays contaminated with various toxins like mercury, DDT or other harmful

    substances. Seerepparttar 131439 AHA special


  • People with a high risk of coronary heart disease or of high-level trigliceride cannot obtain enough Omega 3 fatty acids

    from dietary fish. They may therefore need to supplement their diet with pharmaceutical fish oil.

Nevertheless, opinions vary on some points.

The Miraculous Claims ofrepparttar Zone Diet

One way of recognizing a fad diet is said to berepparttar 131432 promise of multiple miraculous effects upon health. And Zone diet promises a lot.

"Why isrepparttar 131433 Zone diet so controversial?"

"Beats me!"

Extract from an interview with Dr. Barry Sears, by Harper&Collins Publishers

Five cover promises

At first glance, Barry Sears' first published book "Enter The Zone" hasrepparttar 131434 following main points:

  1. Lose weight permanently
  2. Reset your genetic code
  3. Prevent disease
  4. Achieve your maximum physical performance
  5. Enhance your mental productivity

These five statements should make us buy. I think I would buy if only one of them were true, point three, preventing disease.

How can a diet not be controversial when it says it can "prevent diseases"? But, to be fair, Dr Sears provides further details of his ambiguous statement somewhere betweenrepparttar 131435 covers ofrepparttar 131436 bestseller. We find out that Zone diet can help to:

  • prevent type II diabetes, as Zone diet is nothing more than permanent and accurate insulin control through food we ingest
  • prevent cardiovascular diseases (cardiomyopathy, arthritis, artherosclerosis, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia)
  • prevent or cure "mental diseases" such as depression and alcoholism
  • restore energy in conditions such as CMS, PMS or even HIV infections
  • prevent cancer development and make antibodies fight tumors with greater success.
