Unofficial Zone Diet Site


Not long after Dr. Barry Sears created and popularized the Zone Diet through his book, "The Zone", interested people began to create web sites on the subject. This is mine. Here you will find many resources that will make starting and staying on the Zone Diet or any 40-30-30 nutritional plan a lot easier.

Upon reading "The Zone", I was intrigued by the idea that the very food we eat and the way we combine it can have dramatic effects on our health. By balancing ratios of protein, carbohydrates and fat in each of our meals (and following a few simple rules) we could be on the way to much better living!

Now this diet does present some challenges (as any new Zoner will tell you). What I've assembled here is a collection of resources that will make it easier for anybody who decides to try the Zone Diet or 40-30-30 eating plans.


I'd like to share a little information for those who may be unfamiliar with this diet but first, realize this: I'm not a doctor and even though I have played one on TV, I am not AMA sanctioned and nothing that I say or write should be considered medical advice. Now for those of you who are interested in knowing more about the Zone and 40-30-30 diets here's what I've got:


Here are some commonly asked Zone or 40-30-30 related questions:
