Dr. Sears Zone Diet Review and Giveaway


About Dr. Sears

Dr. Barry Sears

Dr. Barry Sears is a leading authority on the impact of the diet on hormonal response, genetic expression, and inflammation. A former research scientist at the Boston University School of Medicine and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dr. Sears has dedicated his research efforts over the past 30 years to the study of lipids. He has published more than 30 scientific articles and holds 13 U.S. patents in the areas of intravenous drug delivery systems and hormonal regulation for the treatment of cardiovascular disease. He has also written 13 books, including the New York Times #1 best-seller "The Zone". These books have sold more than 5 million copies in the U.S. and have been translated into 22 different languages. For further information on the scientific background of Dr. Sears, click here.


About the Program

See and feel the difference in just 2 weeks!

Weight loss has never been easier. You are eating the foods you like to eat and not feeling hungry between meals. That's the Zone promise. Each ZoneFast™ Weight-Loss Package contains a variety of popular breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack items along with our structured meal planner to help you get acquainted with preparing your Zone meals and put you on the fast track to losing weight.

The key to the Zone 1-2-3 Program is maintaining hormonal balance to reduce cellular inflammation.  This means that every time you make a food choice, your hormones are going to change depending on what you eat.

Once you learn how to make the correct food choices to control you hormones, you have the key to silencing inflammatory genes.  Remember, if you are overweight, it is most likely that you are genetically pre-disposed to gain weight.  It's not fair, but with the Zone 1-2-3 Program you have a clinically proven system to silence those genes that would otherwise cause you to gain weight in spite of your best intentions.


My Review

I had heard of Dr. Sears and the Zone program years ago but never had the opportunity to try the food. I wasn't sure how I would enjoy the food. I have to be honest..I am a carb fiend. I never really jumped on the bandwagon of the many other diets that restricted high carb foods.It wasn't that I thought I would fail. It was the fact that I love the taste and texture of high carb foods.
When I got the opportunity to review Dr. Sears Zone 1-2-3 Program I jumped at the chance. Even though I never was a full-fledged low-carber I have tried low carb products in the past and I just wasn't impressed. The taste didn't do it for me and the texture, Blah, it was crumbly and gross!!
I loved the food from the Zone 1-2-3 Program. Not only did it taste like "real" carbs but a lot of it was better than the carbs I have been eating already. Everything was yummy. The onion bagels had big pieces of onion on them. Not hard, dried ones. The cookies were out if this world (I had to hide them from my 6 year old)and all of the food is really filling. With the Zone diet program I didn't feel deprived and I was able to incorporate it into the foods I already eat. I can definitely see myself continuing on the program. I have a four month old and would really love to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. Aside from that my health is really important to me and the Zone 1-2-3 Program is ideal for the goals I want to meet.

I received 2 weeks of Zone 1-2-3 Program products that came to my doorstep in 2 seperate shipments. The shipment included bagels (onion, multigrain, sesame, cinnamon, and garlic), bread (cinnamon swirl, multigrain, white), cookies (coconut chocolate chip, health bar, milk chocolate chunk, peanut butter),
granola ( original, peanut butter), pizza crust (multigrain, sesame), rolls, pretzels, pasta, flatbread, croutons.
