What is the Zone in Zone Diet?

The Zone is defined as the seemingly effortless, euphoric state where body and mind work at peak efficiency. Our body is just like an automobile engine, it requires perfect mixture of water, fuel and air to sustain. It is a state of hormonal balance that can be achieved by your diet, i.e. by keeping the hormone insulin in a tight zone: not too high, not too low—at equilibrium.

The Zone Diet is a life-long hormonal control strategy. To understand hormonal thinking and its implications, you must realize that it is impossible for dietary fat alone to make you fat but is the excessive levels of the hormone insulin that makes and keeps you fat.

The insulin levels increase when an individual eats too many fat-free carbohydrates or too many calories at any one meal. Coincidentally, Americans do both. As in fattening cattle by feeding them excessive amounts of low-fat grain to raise their insulin levels, humans accidentally fatten themselves in the same way but now in the form of pasta and bagels.

In core, try to understand it takes fat to burn fat. Fat slows down the entry rate of carbohydrates into the bloodstream thereby decreasing the production of insulin. Since it's insulin that makes you fat, having more fat in the diet is important for reducing insulin, especially since it does not stimulate insulin production. The best type of fat is monounsaturated fat, like olive oil, guacamole, almonds, and macadamia nuts.
