The Zone Diet Explained

The Zone Diet Explained

Developed by Barry Sears PhD, the 'Zone Diet' is the latest in a long line of attempts to get a fresh angle on weightloss, and is currently among the 5 most popular diets in the States, partly because dieters report losing up to 5 pounds in the first week, and up to 1.5 pounds each week thereafter. Dr Sears main thrust is that food is 'medecine' for the body, and not just the 'fuel'. He proposes an "ideal" ratio of carbohydrates, proteins and fats - namely 40% carbs to 30% protein and 30% fat, which is supposed to keep the body within a healthy 'zone' determined by hormones.

How To Make Money With Affiliates

With affiliate programs, it really pays to work well
with others. Also known as referral programs,
