Zone Diet is categorized as a balanced diet and it is perfect for people who enjoy eating. The absolute best thing about this diet is that no food is off limits. You can eat all of your favorite food products as long as you pay attention to the amount of food you are eating. If you follow this diet correctly you will lose between one and two pounds every week. It was specifically designed for quick and effective weight loss.
The idea is to limit the amount of calories you eat every day and every meal should be made of 40% carbs, 30% natural fat, and 30% protein. For women the daily calorie intake is limited to 1,200 calories and for men it is set at 1,500 calories. No food group is off limits as long as each meal contains the appropriate amount of nutrition. Most people just use rough estimates to create their meals. For instance, divide your plate into three sections, and fill each section with an appropriate type of food. For example, one corner will contain protein, the other, carbs, and so on. It is relatively easy to create a habit of dividing each food group before you make a meal. Combine this diet with regular exercise and you will lose weight at an incredible speed.
