The Zone Diet Overview
Surprisingly, it is not what you think. The Zone Diet is a way of life that helps you lose fat and increases wellness by reducing cellular inflammation. It’s cellular inflammation that is the underlying cause of not only weight gain and the acceleration of chronic disease, but also the reason behind decreasing physical, emotional, and mental performance.
It might sound a little bit surprising, but the Zone Diet is not what you are thinking of. Instead of being a diet, it is more a way of life that helps you drop down fat and increase your overall wellness by reducing cellular inflammation.
Cellular inflammation is the underlying cause of weight gain, speeding the apparition of chronic disease. It is also one of the main reasons behind decreased physical, emotional, and mental performance.
What is the Zone Diet?
The Zone Diet was created by Dr. Barry Sears, the master mind at Zone Labs. He is also the leading authority of hormonal effects of food and their effect on cellular inflammation. If you want to improve your lifestyle, reduce cellular inflammation and you have made the first step.
It has been said cellular inflammation is what makes us put on weight. It also accelerates the chronic disease’s development, while decreasing overall physical performance. Even though such inflammation goes beyond the perception of pain, you should be able to measure it.
It seems more than 90% of Americans have high levels of inflammation. If they remain the same, the disease can become a silent killer that no drug can cure. It can only be reversed by dieting, more precisely by the anti-inflammatory Zone Diet.
How Zone Diet is the solution
The Zone Diet is scientifically proven to reverse cellular inflammation. It maintains the inflammatory hormones generated by foods within a Zone that is not too high, but also not too low.
In other words, it keeps it constant.
The dietary plan is simple: split your plate into three equal sections.
One third should contain low-fat protein that is not bigger or thicker than the palm of your hand.
The other two-thirds should contain colorful carbohydrates (vegetables and fruits).
Add a dash of fat that doesn’t contain that much omega-6 and saturated fats, such as olive oil.
After such a meal, you should no longer feel hunger for at least six hours.
As simple as this might sound in theory, it is not that easy to be applied. Many loved foods will have to be aborted: bread, pizza, pasta, potatoes, and rice.
Maintaining the appropriate balance of proteins, carbohydrates and fats with every meal, in order to maintain the hormonal balance that reduces cellular inflammation is a little bit more difficult than that.
The Zone Diet’s ingredients
Omega 3 Fish Oil
EPA and DHA, the omega 3 fatty acids are among the most powerful nutrients that reduce cellular inflammation.
If you want to maximize the anti-inflammatory benefits of omega-3 fatty acid, take an adequate dose of purified polyphenols. The amount of polyphenols your body needs depends on the omega-3 fatty acids you are taking.
