What is the zone considered by Enerzon products?
Dr.Sears has used the hormonal action of food for his method of healthy eating, which leads to the improvement and protection of health. He found that to enter the zone we can have the right ratio of calories from carbohydrates, proteins and fats (40%: 30%: 30%), between them a lot of fiber and some exercise!
Zone is a method of healthy eating based on our genetic record. It is a hormone modulation program that, with the help of food, balances insulin and glucagon and blood sugar and allows you to reduce calories consumed without hunger, fatigue and feeling deprived.
With this way of eating, you will not lose ten kilograms in ten days, but you will lose half a kilogram a week, which is a healthy way to lose weight. You will lose weight forever while enjoying the delicious meals of the food you love.
By eating in the zone, we achieve a balance of the hormones insulin and glucagon and the "good" and "bad" eicosanoids. This hormonal balance provides us with excellent physical and mental health and a normal body weight for a lifetime. Dr. Barry Sears called such an excellent, excellent state of health a zone of health, so we can also call it an area of excellent health.

The principles of the zone are:

  • The calorie ratio of carbohydrates, proteins and fats is 40%: 30%: 30%
  • Even food intake throughout the day (five meals)
  • Change in the choice of fats (we choose good "healthy" fats)
  • Moderate physical activity
  • Adding omega-3 essential fatty acids

As a sufficient amount of protein protects women from osteoporosis and heart attack, 75g of protein intake is recommended as a daily minimum for women, and less can be consumed only by women of small stature and with little activity. Another finding was that the dose of omega-3 to protect health should be increased to 2.5g. For inflammatory diseases, as well as for more severe neurological diseases, it is necessary to take even higher doses of omega-3, up to 5g. It is precisely the high doses of omega-3 that distinguish the normal zone from the anti-inflammatory diet and the anti-neurological diet. So, even in severe diseases, the zonal diet remains the same, only omega-3 doses increase. The sicker you are, the more you need to avoid foods of “poor” choice. However, moderate physical activity is always mandatory.
It remains an indisputable fact that living in the zone is a preventive health program, not a weight loss diet, even though with such a lifestyle, the extra pounds are lost forever in a healthy way!

Who needs a zone?

It is needed by all people who want to eat healthily, be slim and healthy, and have a lot of mental and physical fitness.
The zone is especially needed by those with a triglyceride to HDL ratio greater than 2, those with a family history of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, allergies, cancer, osteoporosis, autoimmune diseases such as rheumatism , some types of allergies…
As the zone is a tested and recognized scientific method of healthy eating, it is suitable for the whole family, for children, students, athletes, patients…

Differences between zone and other insulin-lowering methods and diets
All current diets and methods are based on the low glycemic index (GI) of foods rich in carbohydrate stores. This food is metabolized more slowly into blood sugar, which lowers insulin secretion and blood sugar levels. Although some low GI diets are healthy and have balanced meals, they are very difficult to stick to because of food preparation especially for yourself and specifically for the family, and because of giving up and feeling deprived. If anything is difficult for you, you will stop doing it sooner or later!
In addition, insulin balance alone is not enough for good health. It is also important to balance eicosanoids or create "good" eicosanoids, without which there is no lasting good health. However, enough purified omega-3 fatty acids are essential to create "good" eicosanoids. The zone is not based on the glycemic index but on the glycemic load.
Glycemic load is the product of the glycemic index and the amount of sugar we consume. So just about any food is allowed, but we can know how to eat it to still stay in the zone. However, if we ever "fall out" of it, it doesn't matter, because we can come back with the next meal. However, we can know that it takes at least 48 hours to rebalance insulin and glucagon and eicosanoids.

The zone is an anti-inflammatory diet

How can we control the control of inflammatory processes in the body?
First by controlling insulin, which we will keep within normal limits with moderate aerobic activity and with a zone diet, which means a ratio of calories from carbohydrates, proteins and fats 40%: 30%: 30%, and then by controlling the formation of inflammatory (bad) eicosanoids. The balance of pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory eicosanoids will be achieved (in addition to insulin control) also by reduced consumption of omega-6 fatty acids (seed oil) and by increased consumption of omega-3 fatty acids. These are also elements of life in the zone!
