Sears explains the biochemistry of food and its effect on our bodies in an understandable way, and makes the reader re-think what we assume to be healthy eating habits. This book has changed the way I think about what I eat, and I feel better after incorporating some of his ideas into my diet. Following the Zone Diet to a T seems a little complicated, but Sears gets the reader to understand why it is important to follow, and the overall idea is very easy to put into practice.
Big for crossfitters, I read to learn more about the hype. It's a good alternative to Paleo. Probably closer to what would actually work for me. The author makes a good attempt to simplify what is a very complex set of recommendations, but I still left the book thinking that following the plan outlined would be too much work.

Recommends it for: anyone wanting to improve health
As far as diet books go - this seemed pretty good. Balancing out proteins, fats, & carbs.. it gave me a few new ideas for my trips to the grocery store. (like sticking to the perimeter!)
