The Zone Diet was created by Dr. Barry Sears who is a former scientist. His diet involves getting 40% of your daily total caloric intake by carbohydrates, 30% from carbs and 30% from fats. Balancing the correct amount of amino acids with carbs helps control the appetite to prevent over eating. The diet consists of three portion controlled meals and two snacks a day; the snacks are incorporated to prevent hunger throughout the day.
Many people call The Zone Diet - the Aniston Diet because Jennifer Aniston has stood by this diet for several years and has tremendous success with it.
