The Zone Diet
“The Zone diet is a simple way of life to keep the levels of silent inflammation under control for a lifetime by balancing a reduced glycemic load with the appropriate amount of protein at each meal coupled with the restriction of omega-6 fatty acids. It’s a lot easier than you think! You greatly enhance the anti-inflammatory actions of the Zone Diet by supplementing it with adequate doses of fish oil (and polyphenols). The combination of these dietary interventions gives you a powerful dietary approach to greatly reduce silent inflammation and allow you to reverse the symptoms of chronic disease as you move back to a state of wellness.” Page 21 the Toxic Fat Syndrome by Dr. Barry Sears
Whenever There is Pain There is Inflammation
Inflammation occurs in response to injury and is necessary for the healing process.
The problem occurs when the initial, acute inflammatory response doesn’t shut off. Inflammation can smolder in the background and continues to cause low-grade tissue damage.
By following the Zone Diet, which is an anti-inflammatory diet combined with ultra-refined, high dose fish oil and purified polyphenol extracts, you can reduce the level of inflammation and return to a state of wellness.

Did You Know That You Can Test the Level of Inflammation?
When cellular inflammation is high, the body starts attacking itself, while low levels make it difficult for the body to effectively fight off microbial invaders. It is important to maintain a balanced level of cellular inflammation. Increased levels of cellular inflammation are the root cause of weight gain, chronic disease development, and accelerated aging.
This straightforward blood test involves a finger-stick to measure the levels of two crucial fatty acids in the blood: Arachidonic Acid (AA), an omega-6 fatty acid, and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA), an omega-3 fatty acid. The average American typically scores around 20, but to be considered healthy, Dr. Barry Sears recommends a range between 1.5 and 3. Don’t rely on guesswork when it comes to cellular inflammation. Taking a painless fingertip blood test is the only way to determine if your cellular inflammation levels are high.
