Have you ever heard of the zone diet? It is a diet that was invented by Dr. Barry Sears. Basically a way of weighing and measuring your foods. Why would you do that?
When we want to consider what food is doing to our body. For instance, when we eat a food that is carbohydrate dominant (meaning more carbohydrates in it then fats or proteins) the body releases insulin to process it. When we eat a food that is a protein source the body releases glucagon. fats, in short, regulate the digestive process. They slow the absorption of carbs and proteins into the body, thereby slowing the release of the previously stated hormones. The fact that hormones are released when we eat food is significant. When we take prescription drugs, many times the drug elicits a hormonal response within the body, in order to change something. Do you see the link? Food is a drug. And we need to choose carefully to get the hormonal response that we are looking for. This is where the Zone Diet comes into play. Through trial and error, Dr. Sears found a ratio of food that is a great baseline toward getting your hormones regulated. What is this ratio? Find our tomorrow...
