UNIQUE Review of the Zone Diet (Enter the Zone)

The Zone Diet (by Barry Sears) is an interesting type of fad diet that is probably not as effective as the Atkins Diet but certainly more effective than the amateurish Cabbage Soup Diet.

The Zone Diet outright states that carbohydrates are fattening (just like the Atkins Diet), but it does not call for such a huge reduction in carbohydrates as does the Atkins Diet.

Instead, the Zone Diet calls for people to eat 40% of their calories each day from carbohydrates, but only specific types of carbohydrates are stressed that will not cause a hormone known as “insulin” (produced by your body) to rise too high each day.

Furthermore, the Zone Diet calls for people to eat 30% of their calories from protein sources (such as meat and fish) and 30% of their calories from fat (remember that fat is inside many meats, but also foods like nuts and certain oils, etc).

Therefore, the Zone Diet is a 40-30-30 diet (40% carbs, 30% protein, and 30% fat).

The Zone Diet claims that every meal should be eaten in this way and that means every meal needs to be “calculated” in advance to balance out to a 40-30-30 ratio (including snacks also).  Therefore, to make things “easier” on everybody the makers of the Zone Diet have also developed a whole line of food products that are called “Zone Perfect” foods because each item has the right balance between carbohydrates, protein, and fats so there is no “calculating” necessary before your meals.

It is not necessary to eat these “Zone Perfect” foods but clearly the makers of this diet would rather you purchase from them as much as is possible.

Our own weight loss experts agree that the Zone Diet has some very credible claims and we agree that some of its theories are effective and true.  We still believe that the carbohydrate portion of the Zone Diet is too large, therefore you will probably find that the Atkins Diet will help you to lose weight at the fastest rate possible, and to keep it off.

The Zone Diet requires a real lifestyle change, a complete dependence on their whole system of thinking, calculating before each and every snack, buying special foods at the grocery store, and/or buying their own Zone Perfect foods (if you want to avoid having to calculate everything yourself).

Therefore, the Zone Diet is not very practical and the average dieter will find it very difficult to wrap their life around this new fad diet, but it can provide for permanent weight loss if you are disciplined enough to ride it out.
